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.

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.
