Pharm.D. Advanced Standing

Advanced Standing Curriculum

The Advanced Standing three-year curriculum for international pharmacy graduates gives 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.

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

Students in the Advanced Standing program can receive a Dotor of Pharmacy with a concentration in Project Management. If you are interested in this concentration, contact Elizabeth F. Shepherd, M.B.A., P.harm.D., FASCP for more information.
