Welcome to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore School of Pharmacy and Health Professions (SOPHP) website. On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, I would like to thank you for your interest in our School. We invite you to browse our website and become familiar with the health professions programs that our School has to offer.
The SOPHP is committed to preparing graduates who are able to collaborate with other health professionals in an effort to achieve health equity and eliminate health disparities. Our commitment is consistent with the university’s mission of meeting the health care needs of the Eastern Shore, the state, the nation, and the world.
We offer a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees in kinesiology, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant studies, and rehabilitation services. Our undergraduate programs include bachelor degrees in kinesiology and rehabilitation services. The graduate programs include master’s degrees in physician assistant studies and rehabilitation counseling, the doctor of physical therapy, and the doctor of pharmacy.
The curricula for our programs are dynamic and progressive in order to meet the current and future needs of the health care system. Our students are trained with other health professions students which helps them to understand the value of collaborative practice. Also, our low student to faculty ratio provides more opportunities for student engagement which is critical to the learning process.
As a School, we distinguish ourselves through our commitment to student success. We are dedicated to fostering a student-centered environment and providing resources to ensure your success in our program. These resources include but are not limited to faculty and peer tutoring and workshops on time management and study skills.
Again, thank you for your interest in the SOPHP. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a tour of our beautiful campus. We look forward to helping you achieve your professional goals.
Dr. T. Sean Vasaitis
