About American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy
Did you know that pharmacy is the third largest health profession in the US and that pharmacists play a vital role in improving patient care through the medicine and information they provide? Pharmacy majors learn to provide drug products and drug information in all areas of patient care. They also learn to monitor drug therapy in order to ensure that the treatment is appropriate, safe, therapeutically effective, and cost-effective. If you are interested in chemistry, biology, math, solving problems and helping others, this career may be for you. Pharmacy school prepares students to provide the drugs used in treatment of disease and to monitor drug therapy. Pharmacists work closely with the physicians and other health professionals in educating and motivating patients to properly manage their drug therapy. AACP represents all pharmacy degree institutions in the U.S. recognized by the Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
