Our Doctor of Pharmacy program reflects the most up-to-date practices and philosophies in the field, shaped by administrators and faculty with comprehensive research expertise and experience delivering care nationwide.

The Certificate in Leadership and Entrepreneurship, which was first offered during the 2018-19 academic year, is comprised of five courses, three of which – Pharmacy Practice Management, Human Resource Management, and Leadership & Pharmacy Practice – were already built into the standard doctorate curriculum. The two additions, Fundamentals of Financial Management and Entrepreneurship, are typically taken by students in their second or third year on campus.
