Pharmacy Missions/Public Health

The pharmacy profession is about serving others. What distinguishes fully-developed pharmacists is the extent to which concern for others and a commitment to service infuses all aspects of the pharmacist's life. Pharmacists learn to offer care as well as product, in a covenant with the public. Leadership in the profession and community requires an understanding of and a commitment to health care access and equity for underserved populations. At Belmont College of Pharmacy, you will have the opportunity to learn how many pharmacy-related services assist patients locally and internationally. You will learn from those who have established viable services for the underserved, uninsured and underinsured. Patient populations with whom you will work include refugees, indigent patients, illiterate patients, marginalized patients and patients in third world countries. Much of the work is collaborative and inter-professional by design.
