Program Description

Touro College of Pharmacy (TCOP), the only 4-year PharmD program in the NYC borough of Manhattan, is home to a large number of health care facilities, community organizations & rich in cultural diversity, offering an abundance of opportunities for career development. While we moved to Three Times Square, the 'crossroads of the world', in June of 2023, we will continue to support the Harlem community and expand this support to all of NYC and beyond.

Our unique educational experience emphasizes hands-on learning, extensive practice experience & service to the community.

Our exceptional, 2.5+1.5 curriculum sets it apart, providing students 9 rotations, placing us amongst the few programs with the most experiential education. We are focused on cultural awareness & community outreach, offer small classes & many opportunities to work closely with skilled faculty & network with a variety of health care providers.

Our core values reflect a commitment to fostering access to underserved populations, communication, community engagement, population health & leadership skills so our graduates will be highly sought after by the employment community.

With an 8:1 student/faculty ratio, you are not a number at TCOP, you are a member of the 'pharmily'.

While a bachelor’s degree is preferred, we only require 67 credits of pre-pharmacy undergrad coursework.

Our students' success can be seen in our 99% employment rate and in our NAPLEX performance, leading NYC PharmD programs as the #1 school in NYC, #2 in the state, and neck and neck with the national pass rate.

We encourage you to attend one of our monthly Info Sessions or request a 1-1 session with us
