North American-Trained PharmD Program

Are you a bachelor’s-trained phar​macist considering a PharmD? Cost versus the benefits associated with an advanced degree are serious considerations. So too, is juggling work, family and school.

At the University of Colorado Denver’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, we’ve worked with working pharmacists for over 20 years. Pharmacists like you seeking to implement change, increase their level of patient care and make an impact in their communities.

Our North American Trained PharmD (NTPD) program was established in 1999. And while times have changed, our commitment to advanced pharmacy education remains strong.

With a top-tier, nationally-ranked school of pharmacy, our NTPD has added faculty and staff to better support you. We continually review our courses and curriculum, revising when needed, to ensure it maintains its relevancy to today’s patient-centered pharmacy practice.

Our program is flexible and can be completed in 2-6 years, depending on your needs. And best of all? All CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy graduates earn the same Doctor of Pharmacy degree, regardless of how the courses are delivered.
