PharmD Program


The doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) program is a four-year professional program that prepares individuals for a variety of careers within the pharmacy profession. A doctor of pharmacy degree is the only degree that prepares students to become practicing licensed pharmacists in the U.S. This curriculum includes didactic, professional skills and experiential learning opportunities. Three years of pre-professional studies are required prior to entering the program and may be completed at any accredited college or university.

Pharmacists make decisions and take actions that affect the safety of the public and the lives of their patients. Therefore, in addition to academic preparation, pharmacists must:

  • provide good judgment.
  • have high ethical standards.
  • be able to communicate well with patients of varying backgrounds and ages, as well as other healthcare providers.
  • be knowledgeable about existing and new medications to ensure each patient receives the optimal results from drug therapy. 

We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds, cultures and environments.
