Faculty Advisors

Every Pharm.D. student is assigned a faculty advisor.  Students meet with their advisors at least once a semester to discuss topics such as academic progress and career tracks. Faculty advisors are familiar with school and campus resources and can provide useful information on a wide range of topics. 

Dean's Office

The administrators and staff of the Dean's Office maintain and open-door policy for all KU School of Pharmacy students. They maintain all student records and are available to address academic, personal, or financial concerns, answer questions about academic standing and assist graduating students with career placement. The associate deans also handle all academic and professional misconduct cases. Pharm.D. students must meet with one of the deans before dropping a course.

Peer Mentors

The SOP Peer Mentoring Program partners current Pharm.D. students with incoming P1 students to help ease the transition to pharmacy school. Peer mentors provide an additional level of support to new students by answering questions, providing advice and being a consistent point of contact throughout the P1’s first year of study. P1 students can sign up for the program early in their first semester.

Rho Chi Tutoring

Rho Chi is the pharmacy academic honor society. Members offer year-round tutoring services for all Pharm.D. students.
