Become a Leader in Pharmacy Education

More than dispensers of medicine, pharmacists today are educators who play a vital role in patient care. The Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program prepares students to be active participants in their role of "Pharmacists as Educators" through our highly personal educational experiences that include both an on-campus and online distance pathway.

In our four-year program, you will learn the technical, social, and administrative aspects of pharmacy and develop the skills needed to become a healthcare leader. The curriculum uses today’s best practices to enhance your learning and provide you with firsthand experience in our technologically advanced labs, in various types of pharmacy settings, and through service opportunities in the community. As a graduate of our program, you will be a trained pharmacy practitioner, ready to provide care to an increasingly diverse patient population in an assortment of environments.

A Personal and Collegiate Learning Experience

The PharmD program enrolls a maximum of 75 students for each incoming class. With a student-to-faculty ratio of 10 to 1 and small laboratory classes, your professors will know your name and take a personal interest in your academic success, a hallmark of a Western New England University education. The Doctor of Pharmacy program fosters critical thinking skills; embraces professionalism; and instills a commitment to lifelong learn­ing, community service, and leadership. Students may also take advantage of our many dual degree options. Become a part of the future of pharmacy. Apply today!

PharmD Distance Pathway

Offered as a high-quality online alternative to our campus-based Doctor of Pharmacy program, the PharmD distance pathway will allow you to pursue a career in pharmacy wherever you are and with more flexibility to meet life’s demands. As an ideal program for the self-motivated student, you’ll work through the same curriculum as our campus-based program, with no added time to degree completion. Apply today for this new and exciting opportunity!
