Program Description

The innovative Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum prepares students for a broad array of careers in pharmacy. Students are admitted to the Pharm.D. program after completing a minimum of 62 semester hours (e.g., 2 years) of pre-professional collegiate study at an accredited college or university. Subsequent to admission, pharmacy students must satisfactorily complete four (4) years of professional study. Pharmacy core courses include the basic pharmaceutical sciences (i.e., infectious disease, immunology, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, pharmaceutics), followed by courses in clinical pharmacy practice (i.e., pathophysiology/therapeutics, drug information/literature evaluation, and pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics), pharmacy administration (i.e., pharmaceutical economics, health care delivery) and pharmacy law. Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences which are integrated with the didactic course work are completed over the first three professional years of the curriculum. Temple University School of Pharmacy offers over 350 pharmacy practice sites for experiential education and numerous opportunities for inter-professional interactions.
