The Duquesne University School of Pharmacy hosts a one-day summer camp for high school students and current college students thinking about transferring to explore pharmacy with faculty and current student pharmacists.

Pharmacy Exploration Day highlights different job pathways, explores a day-in-the-life of a pharmacist, and experience:

  • SimMan Patient Simulation Demonstration
    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.

  • Pharmacy Compounding Techniques
    In one of the School of Pharmacy's labs, School of Pharmacy teaching assistants will explain compounding techniques and you can watch them create a "compound."

  • 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!
