Program Description

The University of Toledo is a national, public research university in Toledo, Ohio where students earn a world-class education and become part of a diverse community of leaders. We value excellence, student-centeredness, research and scholarship, professionalism and leadership, and diversity.

The UToledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences provides outstanding learning opportunities, with many of our experiential and research experiences taking place in the field to best prepare our doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students for prosperous careers.

  • Our four-year Pharm.D. program follows two years in Pre-Pharmacy and has student-focused pathways to success.  The first two years of the Pharm.D. program are at the undergraduate level and the second two years are at the graduate level.
  • Our students take classes on the UToledo Health Science Campus alongside students who are studying other health professions. Our students benefit from interprofessional education with pharmacy, medical, nursing, physical therapy and other health-professional students in our state-of-the-art Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center.
  • Our tuition and fees are lower than private schools, and many students qualify for undergraduate scholarships during the first two years.
