Please Note: You are welcome to attend the Open House event that best suits your schedule. The information covered in the fall and spring events will be largely the same. We attempt to separate high school and college students primarily because their questions and concerns may vary considerably.
All students should join the listserv to receive prepharmacy updates and to be notified of information on future PharmD events. Open Houses are typically held in the fall and spring semesters.
