Welcome from the Dean

Lisa Deziel, Pharm.D., Ph.D.

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) College of Pharmacy (COP) is a vibrant, dynamic place - ever changing, constantly growing and always working toward providing new opportunities for our students, alumni, and community friends. Our website is designed to introduce you to the college and keep you up to date on our activities. In addition, you will find admissions and curriculum information; highlights; faculty, alumni, and student profiles; and information on student organizations and events. We hope you will find the information useful and engaging and that you enjoy the exciting environment that is NSU's COP.

The college offers a challenging professional program of study in pharmacy through the Pharm.D. degree designed to meet the needs of current and future patient-centered care. Presented by highly talented and diverse faculty using innovative teaching modalities and technologies, our graduates are prepared to be medication therapy managers and positioned for leadership positions within the health care environment. We also provide opportunities for students who want more than the traditional curriculum, including concurrent degree programs for qualified students to earn a Pharm.D./M.B.A., Pharm.D/M.P.H, or Pharm.D./M.S.B.I. Opportunities to work with faculty on research projects, an advanced-standing program for international pharmacists, and an international travel study programs add to our diverse list of offerings.

NSU COP also offers a quality Ph.D. program - one that attracts students from all over the world. With multiple tracks to choose from in pharmaceutical sciences, and sociobehavioral and administrative pharmacy, our Ph.D. students are engaged in meaningful research with our talented faculty. The Ph.D. degree prepares its graduates for positions within academia and industry by providing quality classroom and research experiences.

In fall 2016 the college will admit its first class of Masters of Science students in the new M.S. in Pharmaceutical Affairs program.  This degree will provide additional opportunities for students interested in the acquisition of knowledge and skills associated with pharmaceutical agents.

Benefitting from the location and diversity of south Florida, NSU COP offers our students an environment that cannot be matched elsewhere. Thank you for visiting our website; we encourage you to become engaged with our college.
