School of
Pharmacy

Engage with current faculty and practicing pharmacists, view experiments in the lab and interact with current students to find out what it’s like to be a pharmacy student at UMKC.

Interested in an exciting, constantly changing career in health? Join us for a one-day, fun-filled pharmacy camp in June! 

  • Take part in making actual medicine in the compounding lab, that you’ll take home and participate in hands-on activities.
  • Hear from community pharmacists about their daily roles!
  • Interact with clinical pharmacists in specialty practices such as oncology, pediatrics, cardiology, emergency room, and more!
  • Learn from School of Pharmacy faculty and students about what it is like to be a member of UMKC at all three locations.


Dates

The camps are scheduled for:
  • June 4 – Columbia (Mizzou campus)
  • June 18 – Springfield (MSU downtown Brick City campus)
  • June 25 – Kansas City (UMKC downtown Health Sciences campus)
    • Kansas City has sold out! The same great camp can also be found in Columbia or Springfield, so we recommend registering for one of the other locations. If you would like to be added to the waiting list to register for Kansas City if spots open up, please email us with the camper name, phone number and email address to reach you.


Eligibility

  • Students who have completed 9th grade or higher at time of camp
  • College students or adults looking for a career change are encouraged to attend!

Cost

  • $35 per camper
  • In most past years, one guest was able to attend; however, because of social distancing we are not able to invite guests in 2021 in order to have more room for our campers. Camper guests can choose to participate in a virtual webinar regarding Financing Pharmacy School, Student Success Programming, and Pharmacy Careers.


The camp registration is below. Register today!

I had a great experience at UMKC Pharmacy Camp! I loved meeting future pharmacy students, the compounding lab and listening to faculty talk about what it's like to be a pharmacist.
