About Wilkes University Nesbitt School of Pharmacy

Entrance to the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy at Wilkes University.

The Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm. D.) degree is the primary entry-level pharmacy practice degree in the United States.

As early as 2000, when the Wilkes University's Nesbitt School of Pharmacy graduated its first doctors of pharmacy, the school has had a national reputation for providing exemplary education for its students.

The main focus of Pharm. D. education is on the development of patient care skills. This means that, in addition to imparting a thorough knowledge of medications, the program must devote substantially more time to teaching applied therapeutics, patient communications, and physical assessment. 

Our graduates are expected to help prevent medication problems when possible and when medication-related health problems do occur, to identify them and find appropriate solutions.
