UMKC Pharmacy Summer Camp: Just What the Pharmacist Ordered!

Pharmacy Students in Lab
UMKC School of Pharmacy has made it a mission to provide an excellent education at an affordable price to students all over Missouri; and in 2005 and 2014 they opened satellite campuses in Columbia and Springfield respectively, to help achieve that goal. Then, in summer 2016, the UMKC School of Pharmacy saw another need and inaugurated a one-day summer experience with the mission of introducing high school and college students to the field of pharmacy, with the added goal to make it available to students across the state of Missouri. Many summer experiences can be expensive and time consuming, so they decided to provide students with an affordable and time-friendly option to learn about pharmacy. Each year has seen the camps fill to capacity at each site: Kansas City, Columbia and Springfield.

The UMKC School of Pharmacy is excited to announce that it will hold its third annual One-day Summer Camp this coming June 2018! Students and guests can choose to attend the camp at one of the three sites at the following dates: Columbia—June 1st, Springfield—June 15th or Kansas City—June 29th. READ MORE
