National Advisory Board


The National Advisory Board plays a vital role in helping the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy plan effectively for the future. The board members work closely with the college and the dean in three key areas:

  • Critical review of current activities
  • Long-term planning
  • Development

The board meets twice a year (generally during the fall and spring semesters) in order to keep the college abreast of current trends and issues in the profession. Members of the board include individuals from diverse pharmacy practice settings as well as from the general community of interests.
