news1-imageAs the BESt Summer Pharmacy Institute approaches its 10th year of service, it is time that we better expose the entire St. Louis region to the outstanding individuals right here in our city. This new website will help us attract, prepare, and support some of our regions most valuable and promising individuals.

We have been witness to what happens when gifted students are given a tremendous challenge and outrageous expectations. They rise to the occasion and exceed the imagination!

The BESt program has achieved tremendous success since its inception in 2008 with 100% college acceptance, 93% of students pursuing healthcare, and 65% pursuing pharmacy as a career. Our success can be attributed to the talents of the students and instructors, our delivery model, and commitment of the program’s partners.

The ultimate goals of BESt are to ensure there are pharmacists able to serve the growing population, increase diversity within the pharmacy profession, and develop future leaders for the Saint Louis community.
