Public Service & Contract Projects
In addition to responding to drug information questions, the Drug Information Center provides several additional services:
Formulary Monograph Service
United States Pharmacopeia
DIC Newsletter – Highlights of FDA Activities
The second purpose of the Drug Information Center is education. Fourth-year pharmacy students have the option of completing a six-week elective rotation at the center to get real-world experience researching and responding to center inquiries.
The center hosts the Specialty Residency in Drug Information Practice & Academia targeted for new pharmacists wishing to gain expertise in drug information and teaching. Early applications for the Specialty Residency in Drug Information Practice are due by January 14.
The Drug Information Center occasionally participates in contracts to provide drug information. Please contact Danial Baker with inquiries regarding drug information contracts.
The Drug Information Center was established by the CPPS in Pullman in 1973 and was transferred to the Spokane campus in 1988. It is the only source of its type for the state. The center is primarily funded by the college as a teaching laboratory and support for our students and preceptors. Additional funding is provided by gifts and contracts.
