The School of Pharmacy hosts an annual camp for high school freshmen through rising seniors and current college students where you can explore pharmacy with Duquesne University School of Pharmacy faculty and students.

You'll learn about the different job pathways pharmacists can work, explore a day-in-the-life of a pharmacist, and experience:

One of our faculty members will demonstrate the state-of-the-art SimMan patient simulators in the Giant Eagle Center for Pharmacy Practice. SimMan is able to simulate various issues like irregular heartbeat, asthma attack, flu symptoms and much more.

Point-Of-Care Testing & Monitoring

See how point of care testing can be a component of an innovative patient care model. Our faculty will explain and demonstrate tests to show you first-hand how pharmacists determine if a patient needs to take the next steps with additional testing for additional patient care.

Mock Emergency Room Scenario

We must act quickly! Your patient has been involved in an accident. It's up to you to organize the information and determine which medication is most appropriate, all while managing the other tasks that get thrown your way!
