We’re focused on real-world results. The Wingate School of Pharmacy helps you find success in the medical community.
This year the School of Pharmacy had the most students in the history of the school accepted to postgraduate year one training positions. These 27 students competed with 4,609 others for 3,312 available positions. What made them so successful?
For students pursuing their Doctor of Pharmacy degree at Wingate University, our courses complement practical experiences, and many include case-based learning. Our curriculum is designed so that what you learn inside the classroom and outside during your rotations complement and support each other. As we can see by the number of students accepted to postgraduate training positions, it is the most effective way for you to prepare for your future career as a pharmacist or for postgraduate training.
The School of Pharmacy offers two postgraduate training experiences, one designed for those interested in ambulatory care. The other is a fellowship that focuses on medical information. We’d like to introduce you to the preceptors for the ambulatory care residency and the medical information preceptors. If you’re curious about how our alumni do after completing their fellowship or residency, our ambulatory care alumni and medical information alumni pages provide a compelling tale of the success enjoyed by previous residents and fellows.
Support When You Need It
Students value the hands-on experience offered by Wingate University, and you get the support you need along the way. In fact, our students have said the supportive family environment is one thing they like most about our program. Professors want you to succeed as much as you do and help you however they can. Plus, the students you meet in classes, labs and student clubs become your friends and biggest supporters as you earn your Doctor of Pharmacy degree.
One of the biggest decisions you make when you apply to the School of Pharmacy is choosing to study on the Wingate campus or the Hendersonville campus. If you choose the Wingate campus, you study in a number of different types of classrooms and labs in the Levine College of Health Sciences building. If you choose the Hendersonville campus, a 95,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility becomes your home for learning. Both campuses have state-of-the art facilities that prepare you for the profession.
