Pharmacy’s role in the American health care system is changing—and STLCOP is helping to lead that change. As a pharmacist, you’ll still be an integral part of patient health teams, providing medication expertise that will ensure patients properly and safely use their medications. You’ll make good use of the rigorous undergraduate and professional coursework that STLCOP requires. But you’ll be prepared as well to serve as the community resource our evolving profession needs. During your years at STLCOP, you’ll learn how to build trusting relationships with your patients. You’ll acquire the expertise and sense of commitment you need to be someone who others turn to for advice and answers to questions about the safe way to take both prescription and over-the-counter medications. In short, you’ll learn the best way for you to make a difference.
