Doctor of Pharmacy
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 is fully accredited by the ACPE. We admitted our first class in Fall 2006. Today, our average class size is about 98 students.
Third-year pharmacy students participated in global Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) courses in Japan.
