School of Pharmacy
The PharmD program is designed to meet educational requirements for our PharmD graduates to take the NAPLEX and MPJE board examinations and apply for a pharmacist license that is required for employment in a patient care setting and is sufficient to meet licensure requirements in all 50 States to practice as a registered pharmacist.
We admitted our first class in Fall 2006. Today, our average class size is about 98 students.
The program is full time and on site. Our goal is to provide a sustainable, learner-centered environment for our students that promotes excellence in professional pharmacy education, scholarship and service.
We foster a learner-centered community that prepares leaders, scholars, and providers to elevate the pharmacy profession and interprofessional patient-focused care.
Develop caring, influential, innovative pharmacists who lead the advancement of public wellness, interprofessional collaboration, and research.
