  program_description: |
    The University of Saint Joseph’s Doctor of Pharmacy program enables students to earn a Pharm.D. degree in just three years. The program promotes the emergence of competent and compassionate pharmacists who can advance pharmacy practice models, engage in community service, and foster the advancement of research and scholarship.
    USJ’s Pharm.D. program takes an experiential education approach. Students will dive head-first into clinical practice in a community or institutional pharmacy to obtain hands-on experience. Students apply theoretical knowledge to a real-world setting and receive guidance from professional supervisors. Emphasizing real-world application, our program prepares students to sit for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination® (NAPLEX) exam and pursue careers in clinical research, medical sales, pharmacology, product/process development, and beyond.
    The Doctor of Pharmacy program maintains a low student-to-faculty ratio to ensure students have the attention that they deserve. As a Pharm.D. student, you have the opportunity to build mentoring relationships with USJ’s faculty and receive personal guidance from them. With an engaging learning environment, students can also collaborate with peers and expand their professional network. USJ students are encouraged to serve the community and each Pharm.D. student completes at least 20 hours of community service annually.
    The 3-calendar year Pharm.D. program is designed with two interwoven and complementary components: didactic and experiential, with the experiential learning component occurring throughout the entire curriculum. Students progress through the program in cohorts, using a modified block schedule (studying a few courses at a time) and mastering the subject material before moving to the next set of courses. This approach has a proven record of increasing students’ ability to master the didactic material and provides students with a rich experiential education.
