Pharmacy today is exciting and fast moving. Today, more than ever, success as a pharmacist is largely influenced by your professional training. Communication, faculty-student mentorship and depth and breadth of basic and clinical pharmacy knowledge are key professional success factors. Communication in healthcare in the 21st century focuses on delivering effective patient centered care. Inter-professional relationships are key to effective patient management.The Touro College of Pharmacy provides a very strong inter-professional learning environment with direct access to Touro healthcare professional programs in medicine and the allied health sciences.

At Touro, we are all mentors and teachers. Our administrators and faculty are active educators. Members of the administration remain engaged as faculty members, actively teaching in the didactic and clinical programs. Many faculty work side by side with students, advancing cutting edge translational research. The broad experience of our faculty in retail, hospital and pharmaceutical-biotechnology, enables our program to prepare students for exciting careers in retail, hospital and industry.
