Faculty and Staff Resources
Need a bottle of aspirin, a spare set of tweezers, or a small package of Kleenex for your workstation? Look no further than the health center pharmacy. Current faculty and staff are welcome to purchase over-the-counter products from the pharmacy. (Prescription services are for students only.) Pharmacists are on site and available to assist you with picking the right product. Payment may be made with cash, check, or credit/debit cards.
Departments are also able to order over-the-counter items through the pharmacy. We are able to charge index or account codes and are happy to send products via campus mail directly to your department.
Campus Outreach and Education
In pharmacy school, all student pharmacists are taught that our education enables us to do so much more than the traditional "count-pour-label-dispense" role associated with prescription delivery. Our pharmacists are true drug experts with detailed knowledge in a variety of areas—we strive to educate as well as medicate.
Presentations to Campus Groups and Organizations
Our pharmacists have participated in campus discussions, panels and interviews covering drug abuse, allergy treatment, travel medicine, and other pharmacy-related topics. We’re happy to work with student groups, employee organizations, and other campus programs to share our expertise.
Mentoring Pre-Professional Students
The pharmacy employs a number of student workers each year, many of whom go on to successful careers as medical professionals. The pharmacy counts a number of pharmacists, nurses, and even an optometrist or two among former student workers. For many students, this is their first chance to gain a hands-on introduction to the healthcare field and interact with patients. While positions are limited and reasonably competitive, we encourage interested students to stop by with a résumé for consideration.
Affiliation with Professional Programs
The pharmacy maintains affiliate institution agreements with Pacific University College of Pharmacy and Oregon State University College of Pharmacy. In this relationship, our pharmacists act as preceptors for professional students completing the final year of the Doctor of Pharmacy degree. We also invite representatives from each institution to campus each year to speak to our pre-pharmacy students about the admissions process and how to strengthen their application to the very competitive professional pharmacy programs.
