Program Details

The University of Florida’s Working Professional Doctor of Pharmacy Degree may secure the competitive advantage students have earned throughout their careers. This program is designed to increase marketability and expand career potential as students upgrade their clinical knowledge, improve their patient consultation practices, and equip them to become innovative leaders in the pharmaceutical care industry. This program’s distance learning delivery was designed with working pharmaceutical professionals in mind who wouldn’t normally have the freedom to pursue a traditional graduate degree on-campus due to family, location, or work commitments. Students enrolled in this course of study should be able to immediately apply the knowledge they gain in class to their practices.

Students in the distance Pharm.D. program may be able to complete the 63-credit curriculum in as little as three years. The first course students take will serve as an introduction to the program, designed to provide the foundation, principles, and skills necessary to provide top-notch pharmaceutical care to patients. With the remaining eight courses, students will discover advanced pharmaceutical care through exploration of various body systems. Some of these courses span the topics of Circulatory Disorders, Cardiac Disorders, Respiratory Disorders, Gastrointestinal Disorders, and Neurological Disorders. In addition to coursework, students must complete regional or remote classroom sessions, as well as completing the Clinical Practice Assessments. Graduates of this program may possess necessary knowledge and skills to become a leader in this competitive field.
