Curriculum:
Year 1. Provides the foundation for professional practice with instruction on pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences, body systems and disease, epidemiology, public health, ethics, pharmaceutical self care, pharmacy law and roles of the pharmacist. The curriculum also teaches US and global health care systems, interpersonal and interprofessional communications, pre-clinical laboratory skills, pharmacy practice skills, and provides certifications in immunization and life support.
Year 2. Continues to build on the foundation courses from year one with instruction on applied biomedical sciences, pharmacology, clinical medicine and pharmacotherapeutics. The curriculum also teaches professional ethics, behavioral aspects of health, drug information, evidence-based practice, research methodology, biostatistics, pharmacokinetics and basics of laboratory medicine. Students will start IPPE courses.
Year 3. Continues with focused instruction on the principles of clinical medicine and pharmacotherapeutics. Also incorporates biotechnology, pharmacogenomics, pharmacoeconomics, special populations and contains skills lab for clinical/evidence-based reasoning and certification in medication therapy management. The curriculum also includes a doctoral level capstone project and provides students an opportunity to take three didactic electives of their choice. Students will continue their IPPE courses.
Year 4. Also known as the experiential year curriculum lists all the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) courses. Students will also take APPE electives of their choice. The Case Conferences will consist of reflection sessions that discuss pertinent clinical areas through case studies and will also provide a NAPLEX preparatory course to assess NAPLEX readiness.
Program Highlights:
Student to Faculty Ratio. With a class size of 52 students, the small student to faculty ratio provides a greater opportunity to ask questions, participate in discussion, and professors who can offer individualized attention.
Advanced Integrated Curriculum. The curriculum is designed to provide comprehensive pharmacy education in a student-focused environment which prepares students to practice pharmacy as competent, compassionate, and ethical professionals dedicated to providing patient-centered care to culturally and ethnically diverse patient populations.
Foreign Language Component. By developing proficiency in one of the primary foreign langaguages spoken in Southern California, students are preparing to better communicate with growing key demographic segments of the community. Students will learn common conversational skills and medical terminology to better facilitate patient understanding and consultation. Providing this language training while making experiential opportunities available to successively practice these language skills will better enable students to meet an important health care community need.
Opportunities to Help Others. MBKU has strong professional relationships with the community. Our students participate in many events at elementary schools and senior facilities, Boys and Girls Clubs, Special Olympics, etc.
Interprofessional Education. Interprofessional Education (IPE) courses offered at MBKU are not simply “parallel learning” where students from each program sit together to hear the same lecture. Our IPE courses are designed to include active learning as well as interprofessional interaction and collaboration. Students from each discipline will participate in shared learning environments such as: journal clubs, workshops, problem-based learning, case studies, and small groups.
