Career Paths in Pharmacy Day 2017:  What You Don’t Know Will Surprise You!

Dear Pharm Chem Majors,

Please see below for a message from the Office of Pre-Health Advising and the USC School of Pharmacy:

Career Paths in Pharmacy Day 2017:  What You Don’t Know Will Surprise You!

Are you considering a career in health care?  Are you interested in considering a career within pharmacy?

With a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree from USC, you will have the opportunity to engage and lead in public health efforts, patient safety initiatives, integrated clinical practices with physicians and medical groups, managed care, specialty drugs, personalized medicine, and many other high-impact roles.  Pharmacy today has evolved into specialized clinical and leadership roles; even the corner drugstore you’re familiar with is changing from a product-driven to service-driven industry.

To learn more about new and developing opportunities in the pharmacy profession, please join us at the USC School of Pharmacy for Careers Paths in Pharmacy Day on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 from 12pm-4pm on the Health Sciences Campus (HSC). You will have the opportunity to meet with USC Pharmacy faculty and students! YOU MUST RSVP by clicking HERE !!

Please RSVP by Wednesday, October 11th!
