AACP Future Pharmacy Student Information
Pharmacy schools and colleges offer the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree program in various lengths and structures. Typically, Pharm.D. is a 4-year post-graduate program. However, a 3-year accelerated Pharm.D. program is now available in many Pharmacy schools and colleges. Some schools are also offering a fully online 3-year accelerated Pharm.D. program. Students do not need a bachelor’s degree to enter the Pharm.D. program. Students can start the professional phase of the Pharm.D. curriculum in a pharmacy school after they have completed all pre-pharmacy coursework.
Hilbert students interested in a career in Pharm.D. have two options. They can complete a four-year bachelor’s degree in any major together with completing all pre-pharmacy coursework before applying. Alternately, they can apply through the Pharmacy College Application Service (PharmCAS) during their sophomore/junior year, provided that all pre-pharmacy coursework has been completed at that point. For detailed information about the application through PharmCAS, please read the instructions first. Hilbert Biology majors typically complement most pre-pharmacy course requirements by the end of their sophomore year and are eligible to apply early through PharmCAS. We recommend all interested students work with the Pre-health Advisor in their freshman year to plan appropriately for timely entry into the Pharmacy schools.
