Duquesne University Pharmacy

About the Center

Duquesne University Pharmacy is a community pharmacy located in the Hill District of Pittsburgh. This is one of our five Academic Research Centers in School that is mission-driven and offers state-of-the-art, comprehensive clinical pharmacy services. It is a first-in-the-nation, faculty-designed, university-operated community pharmacy. The pharmacy offers a unique educational training opportunity for Duquesne University student pharmacists.

The goal of the pharmacy is to improve access to medications and patient adherence, while enhancing medication safety and reducing overall health care expenditures. We seek to improve access to affordable medications by coordinating resources and delivery options, and to improve patient adherence through regular patient contact and prescriber collaboration. Patient counseling is the primary focus. We are committed to working with community leaders and organizations, especially within the Hill District, to bring medication therapy management and pharmaceutical care to local residents.
