Academic Programs

iPharmD™


Tailored to the needs of very distinct audiences, iPharmD™ consists of two academic programs for both international and North American working pharmacists with a bachelor’s degree in pharmacy.

North American-Trained PharmD (NTPD) Program – The NTPD Program is a flexible Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program for working pharmacists who are licensed in the United States or Canada. Didactic courses are delivered online. Experiential training requirements may be met through a combination of live rotations and, in many cases, through credit received for qualified previous work. No visits to campus are currently required. The NTPD Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

International-Trained PharmD (ITPD) Program – The newly introduced ITPD Program is a hybrid of our on-campus, entry-level PharmD program and the NTPD Program. The ITPD Program is an entry-level Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program for working pharmacists who are licensed outside the United States or Canada. The ITPD Program is primarily a distance-based degree but does require students to come to Colorado twice during the curriculum. Experiential training requirements are met through live rotations completed in Colorado. The ITPD Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
