Program Description

At Midwestern University’s College of Pharmacy–Glendale (CPG), students pursue the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. Supported by a faculty member, small groups of students work together to complete projects and assignments and gain extensive clinical knowledge. Patient care experiences begin immediately and are integrated throughout the curriculum. The entire program requires a total of five years of coursework, the first two years at another college and the final three calendar years at CPG. Students complete, on a year-round basis, required courses, elective professional courses, and clinical/experiential education. The second and third professional years provide immersion in hands-on learning at diverse clinical rotation sites, emphasizing problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication skills. Settings include community pharmacies, hospitals, managed care facilities, physician offices, Indian Health Service programs, and other rural and urban sites in the growing Southwest region.
