The Drake College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (CPHS) is dedicated to preparing today’s learners to be tomorrow’s healthcare leaders.
Students in the PharmD, OTD, MAT, and Health Sciences programs gain real-world experiences through hands-on experiential learning in a variety of practice settings. In the Des Moines community, PharmD students have administered over 10,000 COVID vaccinations to central Iowa residents in partnership with Hy-Vee and the Polk County Health Department. MAT students provide services and educational materials for the Iowa High School Girls Athletic Union and OTD students provide care giver training to various local non-profit organizations.
Through their work in our learner-centered, innovative classrooms and labs, along with the real-world experiences the College offers, students learn the values of collaboration, professionalism, and entrepreneurial leadership.
Healthcare professionals have the opportunity to make a meaningful, lasting impact on people’s lives. With your support during All In, our CPHS students can continue to succeed and thrive as healthcare professionals to make the world a better, healthier place.
