The mission of the GA-PCOM PharmD program will be to educate caring, proactive pharmacists according to a model of patient-oriented practice termed patient-centered care, a practice of pharmacy in which the practitioner assumes responsibility for a patient's medication-related needs and is held accountable for this commitment. The program will educate pharmacists who prepare and provide drug products and assume responsibility for the rational use of drugs by contributing to the design, implementation, monitoring and modification of therapeutic plans that will achieve defined goals and improve therapeutic outcomes.
