Program Description

Creighton University has a long-standing tradition of excellence in advancing health care professions through service, innovative technology, community outreach, professionalism, and clinical experience. Our Doctor of Pharmacy program has built upon this tradition since 1905. In 2001, we formed the nation's first Distance Pathway allowing students, who are unable to relocate, to complete the majority of their pharmacy program online (labs are completed on-campus in Omaha, NE for a few weeks each summer and pharmacy practice clinical experiences can be completed closer to home). This fall 2021, we will enroll the first class of our Phoenix Pathway at our new 183,000-square-foot interprofessional Health Sciences Campus at Park Central in midtown Phoenix, AZ. Clinical settings for our PharmD students are diverse and numerous. We have over 1000 established relationships with clinical sites across the United States and internationally, with over 30 elective opportunities to choose from, including unique opportunities in Medication Therapy Management.

All prerequisite coursework must be completed by August 1st prior to program matriculation. International students (campus pathway only) planning to enroll under an F-1 visa are required to complete all prerequisite coursework by July 1st prior to program matriculation to ensure timely processing of Visa paper work.
The biology chemistry courses must be a two-semester, eight-hour or equivalent course sequence. A course sequence is considered to be a correlated pair of courses offering in-depth coverage of a specific field and must be at a level such that the courses would be acceptable as prerequisites to advance towards a baccalaureate degree in that discipline. For chemistry and biology courses, survey courses, courses without associated laboratories, courses designed for non-science majors, or online science courses utilizing a laboratory kit are not acceptable as prerequisite science courses.
