If you have earned a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in pharmacy and want to advance your career by earning a PharmD degree, then consider our PharmD International Pathway (PIP) Program, which was formerly known as our International Post-Baccalaureate Program (IPBP). Our PIP program is targeted to domestic and/or foreign-trained pharmacists with a bachelor’s degree (B.S. or equivalent), who wish to earn a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. By qualifying for this program, you advance directly into the second year of the PharmD curriculum, which enables you to complete your degree in three years.
