Program Description

The University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy offers a four-year program of study leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree as the only entry-level professional degree in pharmacy.

Our Doctor of Pharmacy program is nationally accredited with a 100% job placement rate and our post-graduate residency placement rate is consistently well above the national average. Classes of 52 students assure each student maximum individual attention within our PharmD program.

In addition to the PharmD degree, we offer an online Master of Science degree in Health Services Administration for current pharmacy students, new and mid-career pharmacists and other healthcare professionals who want to become department directors, patient safety coordinators and/or directors, regulatory compliance officers, clinical research associates, health outcomes researchers or advance practice pharmacists. Students interested in pursuing an MBA in addition to their Doctor of Pharmacy can complete our dual PharmD/MBA which is a five year program.
