Program Description

Curriculum: Our pre-professional curriculum requires the completion of 81 hours of coursework. Some students can complete this work in two years, while other students may take three years. In what follows, we will refer to a two year pre-pharmacy curriculum with the possibility of a three year track implied where necessary. In the first two years of the curriculum (prepharmacy), emphasis is placed on chemical, biological, administrative, behavioral or social sciences, and humanities needed for the four-year professional pharmacy curriculum. The third, fourth and fifth years provide the students with the professional educational background necessary for the sixth year of clinical rotations. In addition to general adult medicine, students may pursue rotations in specialized areas of interest such as pediatrics, oncology, nutrition, infectious disease, pharmacokinetics, cardiology, family practice, ambulatory care, critical care, rural health, managed care, endocrinology, psychiatry and rehabilitation.
