Program Description

Well-trained pharmacists are always in demand. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, positions for pharmacists will rise 17 percent by 2018. This growth is fueled by the increasing use of prescription drugs by an aging population; scientific advances leading to the introduction of new drugs; and pharmacists’ growing involvement in patient care.
If you’re interested in a rewarding career as a pharmacist, discover the entry-level Doctor of Pharmacy Degree Program (Pharm.D.) at St. John’s University. Offered by our College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences — one of the leading schools of its kind — the program is designed to provide students with the clinical and academic skills and knowledge needed to deliver outstanding patient care in all pharmacy settings.
Students begin with the analytical and communications skills made possible by a broad liberal arts foundation. This is combined with pharmacy coursework, introduced early in the program. In their final four years, students gain an intensive foundation in the basic and applied pharmaceutical and clinical sciences.
In keeping with the metropolitan, Catholic and Vincentian mission of the University, students gain first-hand clinical experience serving diverse, often needy communities at more than 200 sites throughout the New York area.
In addressing our Global mission, pharmacy students can participate in the University’s Discover the World – Pharmacy program in either the second or sixth year of the program.
