An important factor in a pharmacy student’s success in this program is to provide the student with available advising, counseling, and mentoring to become successful. Mentoring, including academic advisement, will be provided by all faculty members in the SPHS. Each student will be assigned a faculty advisor. All students will meet with their faculty advisor to discuss program, academic, professional/career issues, and any other programmatic requirements.
Faculty advisors will be notified regarding a student who fails a course or rotation, or is otherwise placed on probation. The faculty advisor will meet with the student to discuss academic difficulties and recommend strategies for academic success. Student adherence to the faculty advisor meeting policy will be enforced by the Director of Academic Support Services. Faculty advisors will also track students’ professional requirements and program progression.
