Apothecary Circle Program

The Kaiser Permanente Apothecary Circle Pharmacy Program was created to enhance the knowledge of the profession of pharmacy for underrepresented pre-pharmacy students.

The mission of the Kaiser Permanente Apothecary Circle Program (ACP) is to assist pre-pharmacy students who are under-represented among pharmacists in the United States. Examples are LatinX, African American and Native American. Our goal is to help our students become the best pharmacy school candidates possible. Candidates chosen are usually college juniors, seniors or graduate students completing pharmacy school prerequisites.

Once accepted, a student will be hired for 2 or 3 summers and work 40 hours a week for 9 weeks each summer at one of our Southern California medical centers. The first summer is spent in an outpatient pharmacy, the second in an inpatient pharmacy and the third in an ambulatory care/pharmacy administration office. The students are exposed to all business, clinical and management aspects of pharmacy.

Throughout each summer, students are introduced to deans of the schools of pharmacy, tour schools of pharmacy and enjoy presentations by pharmacists on clinical roles, as well as learn professionalism, interview, resume and presentation skills.

The criteria to become a KP ACP student:

  • Be completing the third or fourth year of college, or a bachelor’s degree graduate
  • Have made the decision to become a pharmacist
  • Have a 3.0 GPA
  • Write a two-page essay describing their interest in Pharmacy, leadership skills, and what makes them the best candidate for the program
  • A scanned copy of unofficial transcripts for all of college work completed to date.
