Our six-year professional program leads to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree and is grounded in the basic and clinical sciences with an emphasis on patient-centered care. The program comprises two years of preprofessional study followed by four years of professional pharmacy school. Preprofessional courses in the biological, physical, and social sciences and the humanities prepare students to enter 21st-century pharmacy practice as informed, well-rounded citizens.
Clinical experiences begin in the first professional year and progress through all four years, with advanced practice experiences at outstanding teaching and community hospitals, community pharmacies, managed care settings, the pharmaceutical industry, and other specialty practice sites.
Few schools can match the breadth and diversity of our clinical experience program. The Pharm.D. program is structured to develop the high levels of theoretical knowledge and professional skill required in this demanding profession. Our students learn to be independent thinkers, creative problem solvers, and compassionate care givers. Through rigorous coursework and patient-centered professional practice, students become highly knowledgeable about all aspects of drug therapy and highly effective in counseling patients and collaborating with health care professionals. Our graduates are well prepared for professional pharmacy practice in a variety of settings-the community, medical institutions, health care facilities, and the pharmaceutical industry, among others-as well as graduate or professional study.
