Recommended Extracurricular Activites

Consider planning out your extra-curricular activities by semester, just like your pre-requisite courses. Starting early helps avoid the stress associated with cramming everything into the last few semesters prior to the application.

Minimum Recommended Extra-curricular Activities

  • Pharmacy Experience: 60 hours shadowing or work as a Pharmacy Tech
  • Volunteer Service: 45 hours during each of the pre-pharmacy years including the year of application
  • Leadership: 2 different leadership positions during the pre-pharmacy years
  • Patient Contact: 50 hours during the pre-pharmacy years (required by University of Utah)
