Pharmacy school curriculum

I felt very grateful for the way Concordia did IPPE's compared to other schools. The two-week rotations allowed us to fully engage in all activities on rotation and get a realistic feel for how it would be working that particular setting. There was no worrying about our academic responsibilities during this time.

The best of both worlds at our campus

A perfect blend of rural and urban describes Concordia's 200-acre property on Lake Michigan in Mequon, WI. Located only 15 miles north of Milwaukee, there are plenty of professional and personal opportunities for students.

That means you have access to top-tier healthcare organizations and practicing pharmacists as you work to earn your PharmD degree. Participate in your pharmacy practice experiences and build your professional network at Advocate Aurora, Ascension, Froedtert, and other community hospitals and clinics.


From the moment I walked into the School of Pharmacy, I felt welcomed, appreciated and cared for. The faculty and staff truly cared for us, as students, and treated us as professional colleagues throughout the entire curriculum.
