The ITPD Program requires the completion of 54 credit hours of didactic coursework and 36 credit hours experiential training in advanced pharmacy practice experiences (APPEs), or rotations, for a total of 90 credit hours. Learn more about the didactic curriculum and experiential training for the ITPD Program in the links below.
All students have six years to complete the program requirements. To offer maximum flexibility, the 90 semester credit hours can be completed in a part-time or full-time format. The ITPD Program encourages students to complete, at a minimum, four to six credit hours per semester for a part-time format; 7-9 credit hours per semester of didactic courses will lead to program completion in three years.
Upon admission into the ITPD Program, all students will schedule an advising call. During the advising call, every student will receive an individualized plan defining how and when the student will complete the didactic and experiential requirements. Any student can request an advising call at any time during the semester.
