DETAILED INFORMATION

The Doctor of Pharmacy program at the University of Rhode Island, College of Pharmacy is a 0/6 program. While most of our first year students come directly from high school, we sometimes accept a small number of transfer students into the first professional year (P1) of the curriculum. Please note, we are not accepting transfer applicants for the Fall of 2019. The 6-year curriculum stresses critical thinking, active learning and clinical experience to prepare you for practice in a variety of professional settings. Students have the opportunity to take professional electives that will advance their knowledge in different areas of pharmacy, including hospital, clinical (e.g. geriatrics, pediatrics, palliative care), manufacturing, managed care, drug analysis, administration, and research. The clinical portion of the program provides students with hands-on experience in hospitals, nursing homes, community pharmacies, government institutions, home healthcare settings, and other industries. We will work with you to place you in early and advanced experience practice sites that are aligned with your educational and career goals.
Graduates of our program have a strong record of passing the national licensing examination (NAPLEX). Average scores over the past five years are above the 90 percentages for graduates taking the exam for the first time. Amongst graduates of the last five years, more than 92.5% reported pharmacy related employment by September following graduation on their AACP graduating student survey. For the class of 2018, 38% of graduates were accepted to either a residency or fellowship trainging program. Job responsibilities vary from staff pharmacists, manager, clinical specialist, consultant, executive, to professor. Ninety-two percent of graduates indicate that they would select the URI College of Pharmacy if they were starting their pharmacy programs over again.
