NORTH MANCHESTER — Manchester University has moved its summer pharmacy camp online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
High school and college students considering pharmacy as a career are invited to attend MU Virtual Pharmacy Week from July 14 to 17. It is free and any student with an interest in the health sciences is welcome.
Manchester pharmacy professionals will share how pharmacists fit into the broader field of healthcare and offer advice about preparing for a pre-pharmacy program in college.
There will be live Q&A sessions and interactive events to learn from pharmacists in a variety of settings, hands-on science activity demonstrations, virtual tours of places where pharmacists work and information on the Manchester admissions process. Pre-recorded sessions on topics related to pharmacy will also be available.
Those who successfully complete the camp will get a T-shirt. High school students who will be juniors or seniors in the fall will be eligible for a Manchester University undergraduate Visit Scholarship, which awards $500 annually.
The deadline to sign up is July 12. More information is available online.
The camp is sponsored in part by Parkview Health.
