About High School Pharmacy Camp

The UIC College of Pharmacy High School Pharmacy camp (HSPC) is a half day, introductory experience designed to expose high school students to the field of pharmacy — it takes place at the UIC Health Sciences Campus at Rockford. HSPC began in 2016 and has helped participants decide if pharmacy is right for them (https://pharmacyforme.org/).  Past participants have included individuals from Illinois as well as out-of-state high school students interested in the profession.  We welcome a diverse group of individuals to apply to attend. With over 80 career paths in the field of pharmacy, High School Pharmacy Camp gives participants an opportunity to  learn about traditional roles for pharmacists as well as novel opportunities you can pursue with a pharmacy degree!

New to the 2020 High School Pharmacy Camp, the UIC College of Pharmacy at Rockford will also offer a half day experience for parents, guardians, and anyone who may be a future pharmacy student supporter. Continue to check our website for more information about this exciting new experience! To apply for the parent/guardian/supporter track, please ask your student to select “Yes” on the Parent/Guardian Track question on their application.


Housing will not be provided for High School Pharmacy Camp.


Cost to Attend

The cost to attend this institute is $25, which includes fees associated with lab activities, breakfast, lunch, and a t-shirt.
