The profession of Pharmacy is an exciting one, which continues to evolve with the changing health care industry. Practitioners are trained to deliver pharmaceutical care in dynamic and diverse health care environments.
Xavier College of Pharmacy strives to administer academic programs that prepare graduates to excel in a progressive practice. Pharmacists continue to be responsible for the oversight of all medication distribution systems but are also more involved in direct patient care. Pharmacists have the responsibility of providing pharmaceutical care, patient counseling, and drug therapy monitoring, with the expected outcome of improving a patient's quality of life.
Pharmacy practice settings include retail pharmacists (independent and chain drug stores), hospitals and clinics, and long-term care facilities. Pharmacists also work in the pharmaceutical industry, state and federal government, academia, research organizations, and a variety of other professional practice settings.

The mission of the Xavier University of Louisiana College of Pharmacy is to prepare pharmacists to impact the medically underserved communities, particularly African Americans, in an effort to eliminate health disparities through patient-centered care, community service, and scholarly work.
