Program Description

The D’Youville School of Pharmacy is becoming a 3-year in-person program beginning August 14, 2023.

The program is designed to prepare students to practice in an inter-professional, patient-centered environment where pharmacists are responsible for assisting patients in managing their medication regimens. Graduates of the program will be able to communicate effectively with patients and other health care practitioners, to solve problems related to drug therapy regimens, and to develop initiatives to improve the health of the communities that they serve.

The 3-year pathway is an accelerated program in calendar and not curricular content. It will span 3 calendar years and utilize a trimester system for a total of 9 academic trimesters. The didactic component of the curriculum will occur during trimesters 1-6; each trimester will be comprised of 14 weeks of didactic learning followed by 1-week of Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs), 1-week of laboratory skills, and a 2-week break. Trimesters 7-9 will encompass the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) that include 6 six-week rotations. Since classes are not held during rotations, students are afforded the opportunity to participate in both U.S. and International IPPE and APPE rotations starting in their first year of study.

D’Youville’s dedication to serving its community is a critical component of the pharmacy program and is reflected in the opening of its Health Professions Hub and Vital Pharmacy. Through its co-curriculum and service learning, and practice experiences in the Hub the School teaches its students to work as part of an inter-professional team, to care for diverse patient populations and needs, and to advance the health of its community.

D'Youville is an urban campus close to downtown Buffalo, its vibrant canal-side, and the Peace Bridge which links the U.S. and Canada. D’Youville’s state-of-the-art Pharmacy Building boasts stunning views of the Buffalo skyline.
