Pre-Health Advising



Pharmacists dispense medications prescribed by health practitioners and are experts in educating patients and practitioners on drug selection, dosage, side effects, etc. Preparing yourself to apply to pharmacy school involves a lot of planning and hard work. Pre-pharmacy students must focus on completing prerequisite courses, getting good grades in all of your courses, gaining experience in the field (through work, volunteering, and shadowing), and taking the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT). Here you will find details about what common pharmacy school prerequisite courses are and what UW Bothell and UW Seattle courses fulfill those requirements, and more information about the PCAT.
