    Hello colleagues,

    The PharmCAS School Directory and Compare Programs feature provide a way for future pharmacy students to compare pharmacy schools across the country in just a few simple clicks! This new video tutorial walks applicants through how to get the most out of these useful tools.

    The School Directory tutorial is now featured on the PharmCAS website and is being promoted as part of National Pharmacy Week (October 18-24) in Pharm4Me and PharmCAS social media. You can also find the video on the Pharm4Me YouTube channel.

    National Pharmacy Week, celebrated during the third full week in October, acknowledges the invaluable contributions that pharmacists and technicians make to patient care in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and other healthcare settings. Below are some additional highlights coming later this week to share with your applicants:

    • Wednesday: What Your Pharmacist Can Do for You Blog + Social Posts
    • Thursday: Admissions Representatives Q&A (prerecorded)
    • Friday: Pharmacy Career Quiz Giveaway

    Check out the Pharm4Me Instagram account to learn more!

    If not done so already, AACP recommends that schools post a direct link to their own School Directory page on their institutional website to aid in applicants easily finding this robust information that answers many common questions about admission requirements.

    We hope you and your applicants find this new resource helpful!
