Doctor of Pharmacy Curriculum (Pharm.D.)

Pharmacy is much more than pills in a bottle. Pharmacy is about ensuring the patients, whom pharmacists serve, utilize their medications safely and effectively. At the UC School of Pharmacy, we want to demystify pharmacy and improve patient health through strong communication and education through our 4 year, Pharm.D. curriculum.
