Program Description

The University of Findlay College of Pharmacy offers a fully accredited doctor of pharmacy program. It is primarily a direct-entry, 0+6 program, however we do accept students each year (with or without a Bachelor Degree) into the final four, profession years.

What makes Findlay different?

* Students are offered multiple dual degree options, including, but not limited to, MBA, Master of Science in Health Informatics, Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science (DNA/Serology or Toxicology) and an AA in Equestian Studies along with the Pharm. D.
* Professional courses taught in small sections of a maximum of 36 students
* Classes are taught interactively, with a faculty to student ratio during on-campus professional years, of 1:8!
* Senior students complete nine months of clinical education at one of 30+ hub sites, but can choose from a variety of elective experiences away from the hub to help each student meet personal and professional goals.
* All professors are doctorally qualified.
* Professors have an educationally diverse background.
* Our faculty use an interactive teaching style, integrating subjects such as pharmacy, pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, kinetics, herbal and over-the-counter therapies into an organ system based curriculum.
