Program Description Curriculum: We offer several pathways in which one can meet our admission requirements and pursue a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. Two pathways - the Early Admissions Pathway and Traditional Pathway - are for students who do not hold a bachelor degree in a health or STEM-related field. Two other pathways - the Post-Baccalaureate Pathway and Pharmacy Technician Pathway - are designed for those who already hold a bachelor degree in a health or STEM-related (most notably in the chemical, biological, or physical sciences) field.

For the Early Admissions Pathway and the Traditional Pathway, 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, infectious disease, cardiology, ambulatory care, critical care, rural health, and managed care.

Applicants who hold a bachelor degree in a health-related, biological, physical, or chemical sciences field may apply through our Post-Baccalaureate Pathway. The Pharmacy Technician Pathway is an adaptation of this pathway, but tailored to individuals working as pharmacy technicians. Pathway requirements are substantially streamlined, and applicants are evaluated on an individual basis.
