"Although I feel safe when I'm on campus, the pharmacy school isn't located in the best part of Kansas City and it is a ways away from the main campus. The only public transportation is the bus, so if you don't have a car then it is difficult to get around. Other than that so far I think it is a great program and I am learning a lot."

"I am actually in the satellite program for the UMKC School of Pharmacy, which allows me to stay on the University of Missouri's campus. I am so happy that I was able to stay in Columbia, where I did my undergrad, and still get all the benefits of being in pharmacy school! Most of my professors are in Kansas City, and we watch their lectures live and communicate with them from our own classrooms. The faculty members in Columbia are very supportive and truly have our best interests at heart! Although it may be more difficult to get to know our professors, I love being in this satellite program. Our classes are small, and with only 30 students, we have become a tight-knit group and are always there to help each other! Being in pharmacy school has made me a more confident person, and I feel that the material I am learning at UMKC will prepare me to be a competent and compassionate pharmacist!"

"I attend the University of Missouri-Kansas City Satellite Program on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, MO. Technology is a huge part of the program because most of our professors are in Kansas City and we must use telecom to watch them in our Columbia classrooms. So far, we seem to be learning very pertinent information for our careers as pharmacists, and the teachers are very supportive of our needs, even though we live in a different city!"

"This program is very rewarding both academically and in terms of networking. I have been mentally challenged at my time here at UMKC and they continue to provide me with opportunities to learn as much as I can. My professors in the school of pharmacy are very helpful and are happy to clarify any points that are unclear during lecture. Also there are many opportunities to get involved in organizations and volunteer while increasing your experience in the field of pharmacy. Overall I rate this program as outstanding and am proud to be a student at this school"

"University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy is well known in the surrounding Kansas City area as well as across the country for having a patient case based pharmacotherapy course that requires students to diagnose, prescribe, monitor, and educate patients about their medication in an open-ended fashion versus answering multiple choice questions. Students' pharmacy careers are developed in a well-rounded fashion learning compounding, counseling, and pharmacy calculations in the first year and completed with a rigorous pharmacotherapy course the final curriculum year. Kansas City has great suburbs where students can live off campus very affordably and arrive at school in a matter of minutes. UMKC is considered a commuter college therefore does not have the tight community of all of the students. UMKC School of Pharmacy can be very costly especially in students that reside out of state, but overall is well worth the price once graduated because of the positive reputation."

"Overall, UMKC School of Pharmacy is a great program. All students studying to become health professionals (Pharmacy, Medical, Nursing and Dental students) attend classes on a completely different campus than undergraduates and other non-health related programs of study. UMKC has an excellent staff; and the school is always striving to make sure we students learn everything there is to know."
