Faculty Contributes to the Professional Pharmacy Field 

Our faculty members are not just teaching and mentoring the next generation of pharmacists, they are active in the field of pharmacy through research, presentations, and publishing.


Preparing Future Pharmacy Leaders

At Cedarville University, we’re not just training pharmacists, we’re training Christian pharmacists who will take their outstanding academic preparation and biblical worldview and enter the workforce ready to lead and make an impact on the culture for Christ. Leadership events, like the one held at the University of Cincinnati College of Pharmacy on October 13, are just one way our students are prepared to excel and lead.
