The NTPD Program is a flexible program for working pharmacists licensed in the United States or Canada. The program format is offered in a full-time or part-time format. Didactic coursework is delivered online and no visits to campus are currently required.
Experiential training requirements may be met through a combination of live rotations and, in many cases, through credit received for qualified previous professional work. The NTPD Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
Graduates are awarded the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree upon program completion.
The NTPD Program requires the completion of a total of 65 credit hours:
- 35 credit hours of online didactic coursework taught using a variety methods including asynchronous forums, simulations, live team and case-based learning.
- 30 credit hours of live experiential training, which is equivalent to 30 weeks of rotations. Opportunities are available for student to complete rotations with our best-in-class preceptors in Colorado or within their existing communities.
Program requirements can be completed in as few as two years full-time study or up to six years part-time study.
