PHARM.D. ADMISSION PROCESS: B.S. PROGRAMS IN BIOLOGY, BIOCHEMISTRY, AND CHEMISTRY TO EARN THE PHARM.D. IN SIX YEARS
The pathway, 3+3 Pharm.D., uses courses and curricula in the existing and approved programs.
The first three years of the 3+3 program are devoted to undergraduate coursework. The student will take courses in the major, general education courses, and electives that include prerequisite coursework for the pharmacy program.
The requirements of entering the Pharm.D. program are satisfied by some of the undergraduate major courses, many of the general education courses, and a few of the electives needed for students to have the 120 credits to graduate with an undergraduate degree at the University of Saint Joseph. Students prepared in Biology, Biochemistry and Chemistry who pursue training as pharmacists from the University’s 3+3 Pharm.D. program will not only have an excellent foundation for a Pharmacy degree, but will begin their career early, filling the need for highly qualified pharmacists.
Students will apply for the Pharm.D. program in the third year of their undergraduate program. If they are accepted, they can use 7 to 10 credits of their major courses plus elective courses to satisfy the remaining credits for the B.S. degree, depending upon the major. Please see the B.S. degree programs below for specific information.
