Program Overview

The University of Florida’s Certificate program in Pharmacy, focusing on Pharmaceutical Chemistry, is offered through the university’s College of Pharmacy and under the Department of Medicinal Chemistry. This certificate is structured to give the student a solid foundation in drug pharmacology, analytical techniques, metabolism, drug chemistry, and organic synthesis. This program’s distance learning delivery was implemented with working professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional certificate program on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments.

This program may be of interest in individuals who are currently working in, or are interested in working in, the following fields: pharmaceutical industry, drug regulatory agencies, and analytical laboratories. Additionally, the Certificate in Pharmaceutical Chemistry is often pursued by chemistry majors who wish to take graduate level courses in pharmaceutical sciences with the intent of entering the pharmaceutical industry. The core curriculum of this program consists of six courses, or 15 semester hours. Some of the courses students will take while enrolled in this program span topics such as Fundamentals of Medicinal Chemistry, Structure & Function of Nucleotides, Medicinal Chemistry, and Pharmaceutical Analysis. Once students successfully complete all six courses, they should be awarded with a Certificate of Pharmaceutical Chemistry from the University of Florida, and may also have the knowledge and skills to succeed in this field.
