Curriculum & Courses

Our pharmacy curriculum is based on a selection of core courses which provide a scientific basis for the study and practice of Pharmaceutical Therapeutics. As students progress through the Pharm.D. program, they gain a deepened understanding of clinical care through specialized, Advanced Pharmaceutical Practice Experiences (APPEs).
