School of Pharmacy
New Jersey's First Pharmacy School Associated with a Private University
Located in the heart of the U.S. pharmaceutical industry, Fairleigh Dickinson University's School of Pharmacy in Morris County, New Jersey, has unveiled a dynamic curriculum incorporating technology, a global perspective and a focus on the future of health care.
The time is right for an innovative approach to pharmacy education because revolutionary developments are changing the field. The role of the pharmacist is expanding following health care reform legislation and the advent of personalized medicine. Pharmacists are increasingly charged with roles of medication safety experts, public health officials, scientists, clinicians, communicators, managers, and patient advocates across many areas of the health care community.
Only the second pharmacy school in the state of New Jersey, FDU's School of Pharmacy offers a variety of classroom, lab, and experiential opportunities to meet the learning styles of today's students and prepare them for exciting and successful careers in the 21st century.
