Program Description

The Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) Program at Roosevelt University is designed to prepare pharmacists to work in a variety of healthcare settings. Through a combination of didactic coursework and introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences, students will graduate with the competencies requisite for entrance into the profession of pharmacy. The Doctor of Pharmacy program is a full-time, daytime program offered in a three-year, year-round format. This comprehensive educational model allows students to graduate one year earlier than in a four-year program, thus preparing students to enter the workforce or post-doctoral training programs one year earlier. The College of Pharmacy is located at Roosevelt University’s Albert A. Robin Campus in Schaumburg, Illinois, a northwest suburb of Chicago. The Schaumburg Campus, a 225,000 square foot facility located on 30 acres is the only comprehensive university in the area and provides an ideal location for the expansion of degree programs in the health sciences.
