The NTPD Program requires the completion of 35 semester credit hours of didactic coursework and 30 credit hours of experiential training in advanced pharmacy practice experiences (APPEs), or rotations, for a total of 65 semester credit hours. Learn more about the didactic curriculum and experiential training in the links below.
All students have six years to complete the program requirements. To offer maximum flexibility, the 65 semester credit hours can be completed in a part-time or full-time format. The NTPD Program encourages students to complete, at a minimum, four to six credit hours per semester for a part-time format.
Upon admission into the NTPD 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.
