Addressing the Healthcare Shortage

The Creighton University Arizona Health Education Alliance is an important addition to Phoenix’s healthcare community, which faces a critical shortage of health care professionals to serve the region’s diverse population. The Creighton Alliance provides Creighton students essential hands-on patient-care experience at mission-focused Phoenix health care facilities. 

PharmD Curriculum

The PharmD curriculum at Creighton focuses on the skills, knowledge and values needed for patient-focused care. It’s designed to help students learn new skills and then build on them.

Graduates will be able to effectively provide care in collaboration with patients, prescribers, other healthcare providers and the community based upon sound therapeutic principles, evidence-based data and research.

Experiential Learning

Improving Patient Care Through Innovative Centers

Center for Medication Therapy Management  

The School of Pharmacy and Health Professions was the first school to partner with AdhereHealth to establish a remote site for student pharmacists and first-year residents to provide medication therapy management services. At this center, students develop an array of skills, including comprehensive medication review, patient education, written and verbal communication skills and assessment and documentation of services and therapy.  

Center for Drug Information and Evidence-Based Practice  

The center offers a wide range of unbiased, timely information consultations to pharmacists nationwide. These consultations allow pharmacists to make informed decisions about dosing, drug interactions, adverse drug reactions, therapeutic reviews and recommendations.
