Program Details

This innovative Pharm.D. program reflects the changes in the practice of pharmacy regarding medication therapy management and patient-centered care.  Pharmacists are essential members of the healthcare team who provide clinical services for the purpose of achieving definitive outcomes that improve a patient’s quality of life. Today’s pharmacy education focuses on:

  • Patient data collection
  • Medication therapy assessment and delivery
  • Pharmacy care plan
  • Patient counseling
  • Patient monitoring and compliance
  • Patient outcomes evaluation and documentation


  • A minimum of 63 semester hours or 95 quarter hours is required before entering the program.
  • An official transcript must be received from each institution the applicant has attended and/or is currently attending. Official transcripts must be received directly from the issuing institution(s). All fall/winter term 2016 transcripts should be directed to PharmCAS. All spring/summer 2017 term transcripts should be directed to the School’s Office of Admission.
  • Two letters of recommendation submitted through PharmCAS. We prefer that one letter come from a college professor who can attest to your ability to enter a competitive professional program. If you have been out of school for some time, letters from a work setting can be helpful. Do not submit letters from family members or friends.
  • Official Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT) scores. PCAT waivers will be granted to any applicant who has earned a 3.25 GPA or higher in all required prerequisite math/science coursework, and has taken all required prerequisite math/science coursework within the last 7 years. Creighton Undergraduate applicants who have earned a 2.9 GPA or higher in all prerequisite math/science coursework, and have taken these courses only at Creighton within the last 7 years also qualify for the PCAT waiver.
