Adventures in Pharmacy

Discover what it takes to become a pharmacist!

Pharmacists work in communities, for educational institutions, drug manufacturers and hospitals, and with nuclear medicine to build patient records and medical files. Pharmacists from the College of Pharmacy will teach you how to read prescriptions, help prepare medications, counsel patients, understand poison warnings and learn patient drug regimens.

You’ll study hypertension, diabetic monitoring, intravenous techniques, and experience the pharmacy lab at USC’s School of Pharmacy where you may even try your hand at compounding and making different types of medicine.
