In this issue we highlight the Senate Bill 493, which will recognize pharmacists as health care providers and create a new advanced practice pharmacist designation for expanded roles in direct patient care. Our students have campaigned and lobbied for this legislation. They recognize that their hard work and advocacy for changes in pharmacy practice are not so much about them as it is for their future patients.
The linkage agreement with California State University, Fullerton is an important step in our efforts to create early assurance programs with important minority-serving academic partners. Cal State Fullerton students must spend at least one year in the linkage program to become familiar with WesternU. Typically, students would enter the program in their junior year after completing required courses at Cal State Fullerton, and would be admitted to the EAP by the respective college admissions committee. They will spend time on WesternU’s campus and work closely with WesternU students and faculty.
