We have a summer in Storrs for you!
UConn's Pre-College Summer Pharmacy: Explore the Field course provides high school students the opportunity to explore whether the pharmaceutical field is right for them at a nationally ranked public university campus.
Where will you be in five years?
That’s a hard question to answer, especially for high school students. UConn’s Pre-College Summer Pharmacy: Explore the Field course can help students figure it out. No matter what area of pharmacy you pursue, the underlying theme of pharmacy practice is to help people live healthier lives. Whether it be in a community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy or the pharmaceutical industry, pharmacists play a major role is assisting patients, clients and other health professionals in the proper use of medications to provide the best outcome for patient health.
A career in pharmacy is diverse and rewarding, with opportunities for patient care, scientific research and innovation. Offered during Session 4, our Pharmacy: Explore the Field session will provide students with an overview of the many career opportunities available to graduates of pharmacy programs and the path that they must follow to achieve their goals. This course will incorporate lectures, hands-on learning activities, guest lecturers and field trips.
Keep an open mind when deciding on what career or major option is right for you. Pharmacy seems like a limited career sometimes to an outsider, but there are so many specialties and opportunities available for pharmacists including working at pharmaceutical companies, state and federal agencies, insurance companies, uniformed services, hospital practice, community practice and academic pharmacy just to name a few. Pharmacists hold a unique knowledge and skill-set that is valued by other health care providers and the public.
