Campus -- PCOM is home to a new school of pharmacy. Our students learn the importance
of health promotion, education and service to the community and, through PCOM's five
Healthcare Centers, provide care to the medically underserved populations in inner
city and rural locations.
PCOM is known for its spirit of collegiality and camaraderie. Student/faculty collaboration
is common, with students working alongside faculty conducting research, coauthoring
articles and presenting at professional conferences.
A rich heritage combined with a progressive use of cutting-edge technology creates
an optimum environment for learning. PCOM's Clinical Learning and Assessment Lab,
with its robotic and human patient simulators, offers unique educational opportunities
for students in most of the College's programs.
