Communities

All PharmD students are involved in Professional Outreach and Development Societies (PODS), and are divided into four smaller groups. The communities are named for a few of the college's formative leaders. Each PODS section pairs with a learning community in the Carver College of Medicine (CCOM) for networking and philanthropy. Below is a list of the PODS communities, as well as their sister community and service projects.
