Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy
The Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy was created in 1995 to respond to the growing need for pharmacists in the health-care system. In so doing, Shenandoah University responded to an unmet need for additional pharmacists, but it did so in a unique way. Combining new ideas in pharmacy education with the use of information technology, it created a new educational model that is even more relevant today.
The School of Pharmacy is housed in the Health Professions Building located on the Winchester Medical Center campus. The building features 190- and 85-seat multimedia classrooms plus numerous smaller classrooms for demonstrations, problem-solving exercises and simulations. Ethernet and Wireless technology provide instant Web access throughout the entire building, including the laboratories, conference rooms, library, and fitness area. The four-year Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum is student-centered, competency-based and technology delivered. All curricular materials are developed as Web-based documents making complete sets of notes, lecture outlines, slides, and simulations available to students prior to each class session. Even though the curriculum is delivered through various technologies, our student-to-faculty ratio (10 to 1) offers students the opportunity to receive individualized attention. Each student is assigned to a faculty advisor who works closely with the student across the entire four years of the curriculum. The Dunn School of Pharmacy faculty is committed to providing a positive learning environment where students can grow both professionally and personally.
