Program Description

Program Description:
3-YEAR ACCELERATED PROGRAM
Our PharmD program is a unique, year-round, three-year accelerated program that allows students to finish their education and earn a pharmacist’s salary a year sooner than about 90% of other U.S. colleges and schools of pharmacy. The program puts students on the fast track to their degree, licensure, and pharmacy practice. Students attend school year-round in the first and second years to complete the didactic portion of the curriculum. The didactic years follow a quarter system, with 11-week quarters and a two-week break between quarters. The third-year is the experiential portion of the program, wherein students work in a variety of practice settings to hone clinical and communication skills.
