The Duquesne University School of Pharmacy boasts over 5,200 alumni now serving as community and workplace leaders across the United States and throughout the world at community and hospital pharmacy settings, with major pharmaceutical companies, in academic and research institutions and  alternative practice areas.

Duquesne University School of Pharmacy alumni give back in a variety of ways as a vital aspect of ongoing professional commitment to pharmacy. In addition, many members actively engage in campus events and activities, including serving as guest speakers or mentors for the next generation of pharmacy leaders.

The Pharmacy Alumni Association encourages all graduates to consider joining and always seeks new members. A close relationship between the Alumni Association and the administration, faculty, and students of the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy directly impacts in the success of the Duquesne University School of Pharmacy. The Pharmacy Alumni Association sponsors many social and continuing pharmacy education (CPE) activities throughout the year, including the Annual Alumni Conference, one of the largest venues for earning valuable continuing education credits, networking, and reuniting with old and making new friends.

The School of Pharmacy wants alumni to keep in touch by sending updates through the online alumni community. The online alumni community provides a forum to connect with former classmates, stay current with School of Pharmacy news, and learn about all upcoming events.

Reception: 5:30 PM, Dinner: 6:30 PM

Duquesne allowed me to create my own journey. I was never pressured to follow one specific pathway by any of my mentors or fellow classmates. I was told it was important to be myself. To reflect on decisions that led to positive outcomes, but to understand negative results will also exist. The importance of growing from those moments, molding who you become as a pharmacist.
