Medical design and application

Gain the hands-on experience needed for post-graduate success.

Our faculty take pride in supporting students in their academic growth, helping prepare application materials, encouraging job shadow experience, and coaching students in studying for professional placement exams, such as the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT).

Mount Mercy students gain valuable experience by conducting research alongside our dedicated and experienced faculty in laboratory settings and through community collaborations, club activities, and campus events.

Internships and experience

Preparation matters. 

The required and suggested courses taught by our knowledgeable faculty will be your first step in preparing for work in the retail pharmaceutical sector, drug manufacturing, research facilities, hospitals, and more.

Pre-pharmacists are encouraged to study classes unique to their professional interest, including analytical chemistry, genetics, immunology, biochemistry II, and cell and molecular biology.
