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 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 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. Trained by highly talented and diverse 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 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. in Biomedical Informatics. Opportunities to work with faculty members on research projects, an advanced-standing program for international pharmacists, and an international travel study program 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 2016 the college admitted its first class of masters students in the M.S. in Pharmaceutical Affairs, and in fall 2017 the college welcomed its first class of students in the M.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences program. These degrees provide 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 health-related agencies.

Benefiting from the location and diversity of south Florida, NSU COP offers students an environment that cannot be matched 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. 

The college is positioned to continue to provide transform pharmacy education and research and prepare leaders for a diverse global community.  Get engaged with our college and make NSU COP your destination for pharmacy education and research.
