Pharm.D. Degree

The Doctor of Pharmacy Degree (Pharm.D.) requires a minimum of 2 years of undergraduate coursework followed by 4 years of Pharmacy school. Out of high school, students can apply for Pharmacy schools that have a joint undergraduate and professional program which lasts 5 to 7 years. These programs are also known as “0-6 programs” or “early assurance programs.” It is important to note that a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree is different than obtaining a Ph.D. or M.S. in Pharmacy. At some pharmacy schools a Bachelor’s degree is not required, but at the majority of schools, a Bachelor’s degree is required or highly recommended. You will want to know what the accreditation status of the schools you are applying to (check here). You can research what each status means and updates to accreditation statuses by visiting ACPE's website. Please contact pharmacy schools if you are further questions regarding their policies.
