Program Description

High Point University’s Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy (FWSOP) (www.highpoint.edu/pharmacy) trains clinicians through our integrated curriculum that weaves foundational basic pharmaceutical science courses with applied courses and practical clinical experiences by combining classroom learning with real world application. Live patient portrayals begin in the first semester and include opportunities for three years of transformational patient relationships.  Small class sizes provide more patient interactions, more research opportunities, and greater student support.

The FWSOP uses a holistic approach to evaluate applicants.  More information about FWSOP’s admission factors, application process, and interview day can be found at http://www.highpoint.edu/pharmacy/admission-technical-standards“>www.highpoint.edu/pharmacy/admission-technical-standards and http://www.highpoint.edu/pharmacy/applicationprocess“>www.highpoint.edu/pharmacy/applicationprocess.
