Abstract:

PU has established a School of Pharmacy, with plans to matriculate the first class Fall 2006. It was important the recruitment, application, and evaluation reflect the mission’s emphases on a student-centered process, community involvement, and proven excellence. Our processes proved successful.

PU admissions design provides a centralized admissions team with individual representatives with each program. The representative affiliated with SOP worked closely with administrators to review applications, including designing evaluation tools, admissions criteria, and assessment practices.

Admitting students prepared for teamwork, community service and unique curriculum was essential for an accelerated program comprising two didactic and one clinical year.

Application evaluation rewarded diverse, full-time courseloads with competitive gpa’s (average 3.4), giving credit for students’ ability to prioritize. The application emphasized diverse health care experience, writing skills, academic and pharmacy recommendations, and community service. The rolling admissions process encouraged students to submit early, allowing a timely interview process.

Interview Day included program overview by Dean Rosenow. Candidates were interviewed by two interviewers, a combination of university staff and community pharmacists, emphasizing community relationships and theory to practice application. Pairings emphasized clinical diversity. Interviewers evaluated ability to communicate, knowledge of profession, and ability to work in a team. Interviewers gathered afterward to discuss and make recommendations to Admissions Committee. Candidates were then ranked on a tiered system – those not offered admission were given feedback on becoming a more competitive applicant in the future.

The interview process was successful for showcasing the program, cultivating qualified candidates, networking, and developing rotation sites.
