About Us


You’re at the Center

The faculty and staff of Wingate University believe in the primacy of our teaching mission. While we place the patient at the center of our healthcare equation, we place the student at the center of our academic mission. All classes, case studies, discussions and laboratory sessions are taught by faculty, not graduate students. All classes are supported fully with Web notes in advance of each session. The student is able to listen to lectures and participate fully in discussions because the notes are provided, rather than penned by the students as the sessions unfold.

More Hands-on Opportunities

Wingate University’s commitment to building the confidence of its students is second to none among schools of pharmacy. This confidence is built through extensive learning and practice opportunities which focus on:

  • Business management
  • Communication skills
  • Disease management
  • Drug order processing
  • Pharmaceutical care
  • Pharmacotherapy
  • Professional decision making
  • Professional ethics

The pharmacy practice component comprises a greater percentage of the curriculum than that of any other school in the United States. Patient care is practiced in each year of the program. Clinical rotations in community practice, long-term care practice, ambulatory clinic practice and acute care practice are all integral, required experiences within the curriculum. Additionally, students are allowed to elect special rotations to build special clinical or management skills.
