The Western New England University Doctor of Pharmacy program prepares entry-level practitioners to provide pharmacy care to an increasingly diverse patient population in a variety of practice environments. The program fosters critical thinking skills, embraces professionalism, and instills a commitment to life-long learning, community service, and leadership.
The WNE Doctor of Pharmacy program is a four year, 148 credit curriculum that includes both classroom instruction and hands-on (experiential) learning. With an incoming class size of 75, our low student-faculty ratio ensures students receive individualized attention. In the classroom, students engage in discussion and learn through integration and application of pharmaceutical, clinical and administrative sciences. Introductory pharmacy practice experiences and advanced pharmacy practice experiences provide a framework for learners to integrate classroom skills in a supervised environment early in the program and practice the skills in a more independent manner during the final year as they evolve into independent practitioners.
