The professional program in pharmacy is a six-year curriculum culminating in the PharmD degree. The plan of study includes a two-year pre-pharmacy curriculum focused on the science and mathematical foundation necessary to understand how the body works and responds to disease and its treatment. A core of humanities, social science and multicultural studies is also part of the early curricular plan so that graduates have an enlightened view of their roles in society. The professional division program of study focuses on biochemistry, microbiology, immunology and the design of chemicals that comprise today’s medicines. The study of pharmacology and pharmaceutics provides insight on how drugs work in the body and the most effective way to deliver drugs into the body. The curriculum integrates the administrative and clinical sciences with the pharmaceutical sciences preparing the student for providing effective patient care in a variety of practice settings. Proficiency in physical assessment, drug informatics, communications, writing and presentation skills is also emphasized. Introductory pharmacy practice experiences are incorporated into the first three years of the professional curriculum. The program is capped off with a two-semester advanced experiential component that offers training in a variety of practice settings. Completion of the program qualifies the student to sit for the pharmacist licensure examination. Interprofessional education with pharmacy, medical, nursing, physical therapy and other health professional students takes place in the multi-million dollar Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center which opened in Spring, 2014.
The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences offers a four-year BS in Pharmaceutical Sciences (BSPS) degree that prepares students for positions in management, pharmaceutical industry, forensic and research laboratories, and for graduate study. Current majors in the BSPS program include cosmetic science and formulation design, medicinal and biological chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmacology/toxicology, and pharmacy administration. An internship is required in all majors. The College also offers the MS in Pharmaceutical Sciences (with focuses of Industrial Pharmacy, Health Outcomes & Socioeconomic Sciences, or Pharmacology/Toxicology) degree, the MS and PhD in Medicinal Chemistry and the PhD in Experimental Therapeutics degrees.
