Program Description

CURRICULUM -

KGI's integrated PharmD curriculum consists of coursework in four broad areas: Basis Sciences, Clinical Skills, Professional Development, and Experiential Education.

The goal of the curriculum is to prepare students to acquire knowledge and develop skills and attitudes to be competent and confident, practice-ready pharmacists. Graduates will be prepared to lead the profession into the future by receiving an increased emphasis on inter-professional collaborative teams, informatics, pharmacogenomics, pharmacovigilance, diagnostics, biomarkers, entrepreneurship and clinical/regulatory affairs.

KGI's active learning, integrated curriculum philosophy allows for students to apply material as they learn it to clinical scenarios. An example classroom activity, Shark Tank style competition, can be found here: https://youtu.be/7bJdflVYrBA

Along with a Doctor of Pharmacy, KGI graduates will receive a Certificate in one of four areas important for the future of pharmacy:
* Medication Therapy Outcomes
* Healthcare Management
* Health Information Technology
* Medical and Clinical Affairs

KGI PharmD students will receive an enhanced exposure to the growing career opportunities within the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, including an Introduction to Industry course during Year 1 and the Certificate option in Medical and Clinical Affairs.

THE CLAREMONT COLLEGES -

The Claremont Colleges (https://www.claremont.edu) are a consortium of five undergraduate and two graduate institutions. KGI students are able to share a wide range of facilities and services with students from any of the other campuses, including: the joint library system, health and counseling centers, Office of Black Students Affairs, the Chicano/Latino Student Affairs Center, Student Disability Resource Center, and Queer Resource Center.
