Chapman University School of Pharmacy (CUSP) engages student pharmacists in science-based, personalized, interdisciplinary education and training and helps students focus on the lifelong pursuit of answers to the grand challenges in human health around the world and their role in compassionate delivery of those solutions, starting with engagement in the local Orange County community. Our focus is on preparing students well to provide flawless medication management services as part of a health care team in various health care settings and to prepare those who might wish to head toward practice and work within the pharmaceutical industry or other parts of the health care research and delivery industry.
 
CUSP utilizes the innovative year-round, 3-year accelerated program and provides integrated courses so that the pharmaceutical science, clinical science, and social and behavioral science are linked cohesively, allowing students to see how they all fit together.
 
What is unique about the CUSP program is that we use more innovative and student-centered methods of instruction. In place of the more traditional, lecture-based model, most class time will be devoted to discussion and active learning exercises. To succeed at CUSP, students will be required to have viewed assigned video, audio and other exercises or readings before coming to class. Quizzes will be given at the beginning of class to allow students to demonstrate the knowledge gained from pre-class preparation, and allow faculty to tailor the discussion and active learning exercises to best meet student needs.
 
As an added benefit of attending CUSP, students will not only receive an iPad for their use, but also will have electronic access to all books free of charge.
 
CUSP has received accreditation for the Doctor of Pharmacy program by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and has full accredidation status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE).
 
We are the first school in California to require the PCAT exam for admission. Given the competitive environment for admission to pharmacy schools, this additional metric will further distinguish our students among their peers at other schools.
 
CUSP will confer the professional degree, Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.), upon those who successfully complete the didactic & experiential educational components, as well as the professionalism components of the program. Responsibility for the use of medication and the health outcomes associated with such use are at the core of the pharmacist’s role in advancing health.
