+ Pre-Pharmacy

Pre-Pharmacy

Pharmacy is a vital and expanding part of health care. More and more young people are seeking a rewarding career in modern pharmacy. The pharmacies of today do much more than dispense medicine. They are a source of information for both physician and patient in the selection, dosage, and administration of the thousands of drugs available. Pharmacy requires scientific knowledge, personal and professional skills, and a commitment to a lifetime of learning.

Some schools admit students into their Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) programs after they have completed two years of undergraduate work. Most schools require or prefer applicants to have a Bachelor's degree.
