Pharm.D About Us
Pharm.D. (Doctor of Pharmacy) is a professional degree program that prepares students to become licensed pharmacists. It is a six-year program that includes two years of pre-pharmacy coursework and four years of professional pharmacy education. During the program, students take courses in pharmaceutical sciences, pharmacology, pharmacotherapy, pharmacy practice, drug safety, and clinical pharmacy. They also gain practical experience through internships and rotations in various healthcare settings, such as hospitals, clinics, and community pharmacies. After completing the program, graduates must pass a licensure exam to become licensed pharmacists. They can work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, community pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, research institutions, and government agencies. Pharm.D. graduates play a critical role in ensuring safe and effective medication use by patients. They work closely with healthcare providers and patients to manage medication therapy, prevent adverse drug reactions, and optimize drug therapy outcomes. The demand for pharmacists is expected to grow in the coming years due to an aging population and the increasing use of medications in healthcare.
