Our pharmacy focuses on anticoagulation (managing medications that prevent blood clots), drug therapy for diabetes management, high cholesterol, heart failure and high blood pressure.
The BVMA Clinical Pharmacy collaborates with Ohio Northern University and the University of Findlay in providing educational rotations for pharmacy students. Our PharmD.
