With an increasing amount of new Pharm.D. graduates every year, many pharmacy school students have chosen to receive more education and set themselves apart from the traditional Pharm.D. graduate to pursue careers in pharmacy law, regulation, geriatrics, research, drug development, pharmaceutical industry, the government (FDA, CDC, etc.).
Some examples of dual degrees:
Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Business Administration (Pharm.D./M.B.A.)
Doctor of Pharmacy/Juris Doctor(Pharm.D./J.D.)
Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Public Health (Pharm.D./M.P.H.)
Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Science in Regulatory Science (Pharm.D./M.S. Regulatory Science)
Doctor of Pharmacy/ Master of Science in Gerontology (Pharm.D./M.S.G.)
Doctor of Pharmacy/Graduate Certificate in Gerontology (Pharm.D./Gerontology Certificate)
Doctor of Pharmacy/Doctor of Philosophy (Pharm.D./Ph.D.)
Some of these degrees will require that you take additional standardized tests (GMAT, GRE, LSAT, etc.), an extra application, and more time in school. You should check these requirements early in the application process so that you will be ready when the time comes. At USC, many dual degree options are offered and some of them require only one or two extra summers with pharmacy school courses overlapping in requirements (saving you tuition and time).
