    Hello colleagues,

    I am excited to share with you that the new PharmCAS website and School Directory are now live!

    Key Features and Benefits:

    • Photos: Every photo on the new PharmCAS website features real student pharmacists and faculty! Any school-specific logos or other identifiers were removed from the photos, so they are equally beneficial to all member institutions. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos!
    • School Directory: The new School Directory provides advanced filtering capabilities allowing applicants to search Pharm.D. programs based on multiple criteria (e.g., region or PCAT requirement).
    • Compare Programs Feature: New dynamic reports allow applicants to compare programs based on individual interests and current directory data. This feature will replace the stagnant PDF tables in the Pharmacy School Admission Requirements (PSAR). Additionally, users can export results into Excel format for their own use.
    • Mobile-Friendly: The new website offers enhanced navigation and functionality in a mobile-friendly and contemporary design.
    • Improved Security: The new website offers improved administrative functions and site security.
    • Branding: The new school directory pages deliver enhanced formatting and branding for programs.
    • Application Instructions PDF: Applicants can now view and download the PharmCAS 2020-2021 Application Instructions PDF for fall 2021 enrollment. 
    • Coming Soon: The PharmCAS website will point to a brand-new PharmGrad website for MS/PhD programs available at schools and colleges of pharmacy when it launches in early August 2020. The new PharmGrad website will feature a Graduate Program Directory and information on pharmaceutical graduate education, including areas of study, degrees, and careers.


    The PharmCAS application and WebAdMIT for the 2020-2021 cycle will open on July 14.

    We hope the new PharmCAS website and School Directory enhances the user experience for you and your applicants and look forward to your feedback.

    Thanks!
    Katie
