Through a combination of academic coursework and introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences, students will graduate with the requisite competencies for entrance into the profession of pharmacy.

As part of the admission process, all students must successfully complete the required pre-pharmacy curriculum at an accredited college or university.

This comprehensive, year-round curriculum allows students to graduate one year earlier than in a four-year program, thus preparing students to enter the workforce or post-doctoral residency training programs more quickly.
