Preview Day

Preview Day is our most comprehensive informational session for anyone interested in the Pharm.D. program. It is offered a few times a year and provides an opportunity to learn about pharmacy careers, the PharmD program, and the admissions process. We encourage anyone interested in a PharmD to attend both sessions - whether you are a high school student or plan to apply next year!

  • Nov. 3rd from 1-4 pm Duluth Campus
  • Dec. 1st from 1-4 pm Twin Cities
