DETAILED INFORMATION

The University of Connecticut (UConn) is a Research I University that has been rated as the leading public University in New England. The School of Pharmacy is an upper-division school and one of 10 schools and colleges located on the main campus in Storrs, a very beautiful and picturesque area of the state. The School is designated as a regional New England School.

The School has offered the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) as its sole professional degree since 1997. The professional program requires completion of: two years of pre-pharmacy requirements, two years in the professional program leading to a Bachelor of Science with a major in Pharmacy Studies (BS Pharmacy Studies), followed by two additional years leading to a Pharm.D. This professional BS/Pharm.D. program is a full-time, four-year program (146 credits professional program plus 64 credits pre-pharmacy for a total of 210 credits), making the Pharm.D. graduate eligible to sit for licensure. The professional program (Pharm.D. years), will require additional tuition and fees for in-state students and proportional increases for New England Regional and out-of-state students.

The professional program is made up of integrated sequences expanding the concepts introduced during the pre-professional years, and applying them to pharmaceutical systems:
1. an organ-based modular approach incorporating pathophysiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, drug delivery/formulation and therapeutics,
2. application of this knowledge to problem solving and patient cases,
3. a sequence of applied practice-based courses including the socioeconomic aspect of the profession and pharmacy administration, and
4. clinical experience with patients.

The curriculum prepares our graduates to become general practitioners with the ability to specialize in many areas of pharmacy. Three specialized learning tracks in Leadership, Urban Service and Pediatric Pharmacy are available to provide students with the opportunity to customize their learning experience according to their own particular interests. Through didactic, service, research, and experiential learning opportunitites, students are able to tailor their educational experience to their own unique interests while developing a speicalized range of skills.
For more information on our Pharm.D., joint-degree, or graduate degree programs, along with the myriad of co-curricular and extra-curricular enrichment opportunities that are avialable, please visit our website at http://www.pharmacy.uconn.edu.
