Pharmacist in a clinical setting


International-Trained PharmD Program

Are you an internationally-trained pharmacist looking to make a positive impact for your patients, your community and your career?

By earning your Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree from the University of Colorado’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences’ International-Trained PharmD (ITPD) Program, you’ll be able to make a lasting impact in all three facets.

The ITPD curriculum is designed for internationally licensed pharmacists. The program develops foundational skills key to your success as a patient-centered practitioners.  Integrated pharmacotherapy courses relate concepts into your practice, and experiential rotations provide you with hands-on experience with U.S.-based pharmaceutical care.  Your rotations are designed both at the introductory and advanced practice settings at sites across Colorado.

Additionally, ITPD’s focus on interprofessional education (IPE) integrates medical, nursing, public health, dental and pharmacy students into the same classroom, furthering your learning through sharing differing healthcare perspectives.  IPE is a unique and memorable experience available through the ITPD program.  IPE also sets our graduates apart when applying for residency or fellowship opportunities.

Speaking of residencies, all of our school’s PharmD pathways are ACPE accredited – a minimum requirement when looking at post-graduate study.
