Graduation

All students must fulfill the general requirements for graduation given in chapter 1. Students in the College of Pharmacy must also fulfill the following requirements.

  1. Students earning the Doctor of Pharmacy must complete in residence the courses prescribed for the third and fourth professional years.
  2. All University students must complete in residence at least twenty-four of the last thirty semester hours of the coursework counted toward the degree.

Degrees

The University offers the PharmD degree as the sole entry-level practice degree. As described in "Aims and Curricula," this program emphasizes an integrated and problem-based approach to disease management as the core of the didactic and laboratory program of study.

The capstone of the PharmD program is a series of seven six-week rotations known as the internship. Each internship course requires between forty and fifty on-site, practitioner-faculty-supervised hours of internship experience a week for six weeks.

The college expects but cannot guarantee that internship sites will include Austin/Temple, Dallas/Fort Worth (the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and other area health care institutions), El Paso (the University of Texas at El Paso and other area health care institutions), Galveston/Houston (the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, and other area health care institutions), the Rio Grande Valley (primarily Harlingen and McAllen), and San Antonio (the University of Texas Health Science Center and other area health care institutions). Students assigned to El Paso and San Antonio spend about a year and a half to two years in these regions, while students assigned to other regions spend only the final year in the internship region.

In completing the Doctor of Pharmacy degree, students also fulfill the internship requirements of the Texas State Board of Pharmacy. The final year of internship courses and several other practice-based courses beginning in the second professional year make up the internship program. The professional experience courses are currently approved by the Texas State Board of Pharmacy to meet its standards for completion of the professional internship licensure requirement. The board reassesses all programs annually.

Applicability of Certain Courses

Physical Activity Courses

Physical activity (PED) courses are offered by the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education. They may not be counted toward a degree in the College of Pharmacy. However, they are counted among courses for which the student is enrolled, and the grades are included in the University grade point average.

ROTC Courses

Courses in air force science, military science, and naval science may be substituted for a total of nine semester hours of electives and for Government 312L by students who complete twenty-four semester hours of required air force science, military science, or naval science coursework and accept a commission in one of the services.

Correspondence and Extension Courses

Credit that a University student in residence earns simultaneously by correspondence or extension from the University or elsewhere or in residence at another school will not be counted toward a degree unless it is specifically approved in advance by the dean. No more than 30 percent of the semester hours required for any degree may be completed by correspondence, and no pharmacy courses taken by correspondence or extension may be counted toward a pharmacy degree.

Prescribed Work

Students who enter the Doctor of Pharmacy degree program without a bachelor's degree must complete a total of 197 semester hours, consisting of basic education requirements, professional electives, and required preprofessional and professional coursework.

Basic Education Requirements

  1. Six semester hours of American history.
  2. Six semester hours of American government, including Texas government.
  3. Three semester hours of coursework in fine arts or humanities, chosen from archaeology, architecture, art (including art history, design, studio art, visual art studies), classics (including classical civilization, Greek, Latin), fine arts, humanities, music (including music, instruments, ensemble), philosophy (excluding courses in logic), or theatre and dance.
  4. Three semester hours of coursework in social and behavioral sciences, chosen from anthropology, economics, geography, linguistics, psychology, sociology, and social work.
  5. Rhetoric and Composition 306, English 316K, and two courses, one of which must be upper-division, certified as having a substantial writing component. Courses that contain a substantial writing component are identified in the Course Schedule. Two courses within the professional curriculum are normally certified.
  6. Students must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language equivalent to that shown by completion of two semesters of college coursework. Credit used to establish proficiency may not be counted toward the degree. For a student admitted to the University as a freshman, this requirement is fulfilled by the completion of the two high school units in a single foreign language that are required for admission; a student admitted with a deficiency in foreign language must remove it as specified in General Information.

Professional Electives

The student must complete at least two professional elective courses, for a total of at least four semester hours.

The student must take the courses used to fulfill the professional electives requirement after admission to the professional curriculum.
