Purpose of the Pre-Pharmacy Seminar
The Pre-Pharmacy Seminar at Creighton University is a two-year program. PRX is tiered to build over two years starting with PRX 100 in the freshman year and concluding with PRX 200 in the sophomore year.
The Pre-Pharmacy Seminar provides the information necessary to strengthen the student’s candidacy for successful application, but also to ensure that this is the best path for the student. Panel discussions, guest speakers, and presentations about trends in the profession will be offered. The seminar will cover all aspects of pre-professional preparation, including the application process and writing skills. Pre-Pharmacy is as much about discernment as having the skills needed to be successful once accepted in the program.
Key Components of the Pre-Pharmacy Seminar
In addition to offering information and resources to students as they prepare their pharmacy school applications, PRX includes programming and advising designed to help students with deciding on a career in pharmacy.
Pending the successful completion of both years of the PRX program, certain considerations will be in place when a student applies to the Creighton University School of Pharmacy and Health Professions. These considerations change with each new class of students.
PRX students are provided an online tool to track their pharmacy school application materials with the Creighton Online Medical and Professional Application System (COMPAS) Journal. Students build their application materials through both years of PRX. The COMPAS Journal is modeled after PharmCAS, the national application service for pharmacy programs.
Practice Interviews and Workshops
Pharmacy school interviews are a critical part of the application process. Through PRX, students learn interviewing techniques and participate in feedback-driven Practice interviews to prepare for their pharmacy school interviews.
Professional Communication Seminar
Often the first contact that pharmacy schools have with a student is the written word. PRX provides workshops for students to develop their personal statements and resumes for their applications to pharmacy school.
From current pharmacy students to pharmacy school admissions professionals and experts in the field of healthcare, PRX gives students the chance to hear from and ask questions to a host of individuals that provide insight into the application process or what to expect in and out of pharmacy school.
Clinical Shadowing Opportunities
Observing a professional in their place of work is critical for a student to discern the direction they take in their professional career. Through the PRX program, students shadow pharmacy professionals based on area of interest, helping students find their passion and assisting in building their application portfolio.
