Pharm. D. for International Pharmacists

About the Program

The International Program educates students to achieve the same outcomes as the entry level Pharm.D. Degree Program. Courses integrate information and build upon one another to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in the profession. Pharmaceutics, Pharmacokinetics, and Nonprescription Therapies courses provide a strong understanding of the principles of drug therapy. The business, human relation, communication, marketing and legal aspects of pharmacy and the health care system are also studied. Courses focus on application of material learned, the use of drugs in the disease process, and developing skills essential to monitoring drug therapy. Students hone their analytical skills with courses in Research Design and Statistics, Pharmacoepidemiology, and Pharmacoeconomics and Drug Literature Evaluation.

Professional Program Goal: The goal of the College of Pharmacy (COP) professional degree program curriculum is to provide graduates with the knowledge, professional skills, attitudes and values necessary to address the pharmacy-related needs of society.
