A warm welcome from the School of Pharmacy (SOP) at the American University of Health Sciences (AUHS). Located a few miles from the beautiful beaches of Southern California in Los Angeles County, AUHS provides a student-centric learning experience in the health professions. The SOP offers degrees in pharmacy and clinical research: Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS), Master of Science in Clinical Research (MSCR) and a proposed Pharm.D. program.
AUHS has a long tradition of serving the community, especially those who are underprivileged and underserved. The SOP’s mission is to instill in our graduates strong Christian values, prepare them to practice evidence-based patient care, educate them in pharmacy research and scholarship, and enable them to meet the health care needs of diverse patient populations.
To realize these goals, the SOP has implemented advanced curricula enabling students to be team-ready and to practice at the highest level of the profession upon graduation. The SOP is committed to creating a holistic interprofessional healthcare education geared towards new models of care that offer patients a team of healthcare professionals working collaboratively to improve their outcomes.
Our pharmacy students interact with the nursing students in the didactic, co-curricular, and experiential settings. Students take common healthcare classes, work in the simulation labs, and work at interprofessional sites across the Los Angeles area. Our commitment to the community is strengthened by the requirement that each student provide 100 hours of community service during their time at AUHS. The SOP aims to meet the need for culturally competent practitioners by recruiting and graduating diverse individuals from minority and underserved communities.
I encourage you to explore our website, visit our campus, and see how the AUHS SOP can help you make a difference in the lives of patients in your community.
