Program Description

Larkin University College of Pharmacy is the first year-round, three-year, block-program in the State of Florida! Founded in 2013, Larkin University is a private, not-for-profit university. The primary goal of the College is to promote and foster pharmacy education to create compassionate and knowledgeable pharmacists who will be prepared to pursue a multitude of career options including post-graduate education. Although students complete their Doctor of Pharmacy in three years, as opposed to the more traditional four years, due to the design of the curriculum, students have approximately 25% more contact time with faculty than traditional programs. The block curriculum allows students to learn in a focused format so students can concentrate on one major topic at a time. Several courses are taught longitudinally over the year to apply the knowledge that has been learned within each block. In a typical day, the class meets with their faculty, engages in didactic teaching, and participates in active learning activities to allow the substantial amount of information learned in pharmacy school to be applied regularly, to support long term knowledge retention. LU College of Pharmacy is affiliated with many teaching hospitals and clinics for pharmacy students throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties so students will not have to travel for third-year rotations unless they wish to do so.
