Department of Clinical and Administrative Sciences

 

The Department of Clinical and Administrative Science (CAS) is comprised of clinical faculty with established pharmacy practices in area hospitals, clinical science faculty who direct the pharmaceutical care labs, and administrative science faculty, all of whom teach core and electives courses in the PharmD program. Along with the department chair, the CAS faculty help establish practice plans for clinical services (including medication therapy management services); stimulate scholarly agendas across the department and into external sites; and, develop value-added services that support the practice communities in which students and faculty are engaged.
