North American-Trained PharmD Program

Program Description


The North American-Trained PharmD (NTPD) Program is a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program for licensed, working pharmacists in the United States or Canada. Students have six years to complete the program requirements in a part- or full-time, distance-based format. Students enrolled as a full-time student have completed the program requirements in as few as two years. All didactic courses are delivered online, providing accessibility and flexibility for your schedule. Experiential training is also flexible. Some rotations can be challenged for academic credit, based on the student's professional experiences as a pharmacist. Other rotations may be available part-time or may be performed at the workplace in cooperation with the preceptor.
