Pharm.D. Program


The Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) is the entry-level professional degree in pharmacy that leads a student towards becoming a pharmacist.  The course requirements include at least two years of undergraduate pre-pharmacy prerequisites & core/flag course requirements, and then four additional years of a Pharm.D. professional pharmacy curriculum.  The last year of the Pharm.D. curriculum includes a series of rotations at various practice sites.
