Doctor of Pharmacy

Doctorate

The Pacific University School of Pharmacy offers a three-year program that leads to a doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) degree.

Courses are offered in a modified block design, allowing students to study one topic at a time before moving on to another content area. Experiential components are integrated into the first two didactic years of study, and the third year is devoted entirely to advanced clinical experience.

At Pacific, we emphasize the integration of concepts, as well as teamwork and collaboration among students. As one of several health professions programs offered at Pacific's Hillsboro Campus, we also emphasize interprofessional cooperation among the healthcare team.

The School of Pharmacy and our PharmD program are fully accredited by the ACPE. 

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.
