Dean's Welcome

Dr. Clark, NSU College of Pharmacy

Michelle A. Clark, Ph.D.

Nova Southeastern University (NSU) College of Pharmacy (COP) is a vibrant, dynamic place - constantly growing and providing new opportunities for our students, alumni, and community friends. Our web site will 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 COP.

The college offers a challenging professional program of study in pharmacy through the Pharm.D. degree, designed to meet the needs of a changing health care environment. Trained by highly talented  faculty members using innovative teaching modalities and technologies, our graduates are prepared to provide comprehensive medication management, and are positioned for leadership roles within the community.

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. in Biomedical Informatics. Opportunities to work with faculty members on research projects, an advanced-standing program for international pharmacy graduates, an international travel study program, and medical outreach programs add to our diverse list of offerings.

Our quality Ph.D. program attracts scholars from around the world. With specialized tracks in either pharmaceutical sciences or social and administrative pharmacy, our Ph.D. students engage in meaningful research with our talented faculty. The Ph.D. degree prepares graduates for positions within academia and industry by providing quality classroom and research experiences.

In fall 2017 the college welcomed its first class of students in the M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences program. This degree provides additional opportunities for students interested in the acquisition of knowledge and skills associated with pharmaceutical agents and prepare them for positions in academia, managerial or sales positions in the pharmaceutical industry, research organizations, managed care, and other governmental and non-governmental health-related agencies.

Benefiting from the location and diversity of south Florida, NSU COP offers students an environment unmatched elsewhere. Our faculty members present an extraordinary combination of specialized research backgrounds, enthusiasm, and dedication that is essential to a successful program. Financial support from grants, the college, and the university, as well as the state-of-the-art Center for Collaborative Research (CCR),  provides space and equipment for faculty members and student researchers. 

Join us and experience the NSU edge in programs that develop practitioners and researchers who, through their leadership and entrepreneurism, will transform the profession of pharmacy to improve global health.
