Through innovation and collaboration among students, faculty, and university and external partners, four Academic Research Centers managed by the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy provide student pharmacists with ample opportunity to gain real-world, hands-on experience in a variety of settings related to the pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences industries without leaving campus.

The four Academic Research Centers overseen by the School of Pharmacy include:

  • The Center for Integrative Health, a wellness clinic focusing on community health initiatives to decrease disease disparity and promote health equity in Pittsburgh and beyond by focusing on health care issues with high costs, high burdens, and significant racial disparity.
  • The Center for Pharmacy Care, a pharmacist-coordinated provider of disease prevention and management services for Duquesne University students and employees and underserved communities in Pittsburgh.
  • The Center for Pharmacy Practice, a mock pharmacy giving students a space to work together to enhance learning by showing the relationship between class lectures and pharmacy practice.
  • The Center for Pharmaceutical Technology, dedicated lab space focusing on improving safety, quality and efficiency through the application of technology throughout the pharmaceutical sciences industry.

In the Academic Research Centers, student pharmacists explore different types of pharmacy practice settings and get a deeper dive into the pharmaceutical sciences and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
