Pharm.D. Advanced Standing

Curriculum

The Advanced Standing program for international pharmacy graduates gives advanced standing based upon previously completed coursework in accordance with the Foreign Coursework Evaluation procedure outlined in the admissions section. The curriculum facilitates the integration of the international pharmacists into the entry-level class, as requested by ACPE.

These courses are representative of the overall requirements of the program at the time of publication and are subject to change. The curriculum will be revised, as needed, to meet the demands of the profession.
