Study as an International Student at a U.S. Pharmacy School

Study at a U.S. pharmacy school to earn your Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) as an international student at Pacific University in Oregon.

Diverse Community at Pacific's Pharmacy School

The Pacific University School of Pharmacy welcomes international pharmacy students studying abroad to pursue a career in pharmacy. Our diverse community — including faculty, staff, preceptors and students — provides a welcoming and collaborative environment for pharmacy international students.

Accelerated Three-year PharmD Program

Located on the Hillsboro Campus, the School of Pharmacy offers a three-year PharmD degree. This is the only accelerated, three-year PharmD program in the state of Oregon and in the Pacific Northwest region. This means that you will receive a doctoral degree in three years, which is a faster and less expensive alternative to traditional four-year programs.

Flexible Pharmacy Rotations

The accelerated three-year program offers the flexibility to complete some IPPE/APPE rotations in locations outside of Oregon in other states within the U.S., which can extend your pharmacy school experience to other parts of the U.S.

Dual Degree and Post-Graduate Opportunities

In addition to the accelerated three-year PharmD, the School of Pharmacy also provides the opportunity to pursue a four-year dual degree in PharmD and MS in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Graduates can also apply for post-graduate education opportunities, such as pharmacy residencies and fellowships throughout the U.S.
