The core philosophy of the NC State Veterinary Hospital Pharmacy is that pharmacists are expected to make meaningful contributions to non-human patient care through hospital service, education, community service, and research.

We believe that this is best provided through a team approach that effectively integrates the knowledge and skills of the pharmacist with those of other health care professionals. Our vision is to ensure the safe and optimal use of pharmaceuticals for all patients of the NC State Veterinary Hospital by having pharmacists provide a central and visible role in all aspects of medication management.
