Program Description

Program Description:
The Faculty of Pharmacy at Wayne State University have developed a contemporary curriculum for the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program that allows interaction with patients and healthcare professionals throughout the four-year program. The Pharmacy program is located in one of the world's leading urban research universities with the reputation of training excellent healthcare professionals. We educate future pharmacists to be highly competent health care practitioners, who effectively and safely provide patient-centered care with other health care team members in diverse settings, to be leaders within the profession and to be lifelong learners. Our PharmD graduates are differentiated and sought after because of their clinical skills and ability to provide inter-professional, evidenced-based care that ensures optimal health of the patient and of the public. Specifically, our graduates are practice-ready, eager, willing to work, and prepared to work with diverse populations. Graduates of the Pharmacy professional program consistently score higher than the national and state averages on the NAPLEX (national licensing exam).
