Thomas Jefferson University Meeting

Thomas Jefferson University Meeting March 22, 2012 Pharmacy Interest at UD Talk to your advisor to add pharmacy interest onto your major. Pharmacy interest is not a major. If you do add pharmacy interest, you can always remove it, you are not committed to it. It only indicates that you have an interest in pharmacy. If you are currently in pharmacy interest and decide you're no longer interested in pharmacy, please

notify Professor David Usher so he can remove you from the interest group. You can be any major to go into pharmacy. Most frequent majors are biology or chemistry.
