Program Description

The D’Youville University School of Pharmacy is offering a 3-year online pathway towards the Doctor of Pharmacy degree. This 3-year online program is dedicated to building the next generation of pharmacy professionals and connecting them to early career success. As in its on-campus 3-year pathway, online students will be taught to communicate effectively with patients and other health care practitioners, to solve problems related to drug therapies, and to improve the health of the communities that they serve.

This program is designed to provide flexibility around students and their schedules through online curriculum delivery and several short on-campus learning experiences while providing an inclusive environment that offers online students the opportunity to engage in extracurricular activities including professional fraternities, student organizations, and service initiatives.

The online pathway is an accelerated program in calendar and not curricular content. It spans 3 calendar years and utilizes a trimester system for a total of 9 academic trimesters. Its trimester format combines online coursework with on-campus lab intensives at the end of each term. This allows its students to complete their studies in as few as three years—one year faster than traditional programs, and ready to enter the job market or residency a year before peers at other institutions.

In particular, the program is constructed so that its didactic component of the curriculum occurs during trimesters 1-6; with each of these trimesters comprised of 14 weeks of online learning followed by one week of Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) and one week of on-campus laboratory skills. Trimesters 7-9 encompass the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) that include 4 core and 2 elective six-week rotations. Prior to the beginning of clinical rotations, the School will work with its online students to find placement sites for them anywhere in the United States.
