DOCTOR OF PHARMACY
The Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree is designed to help you develop and master professional, academic, and interpersonal skills as a pharmacist. To master these skills, you will participate in a dynamic curriculum with didactic coursework, small group recitations, and labs.
You will also have the opportunity to differentiate your degree by pursuing an elective track in Clinical Trials, Business, Drug Safety, or Advanced Clinical Practice. Temple also offers dual degree programs in Business and Regulatory Affairs and Quality Assurance.
Fourth-year rotations will also expose you to new possibilities. You can apply to complete your Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) requirement locally, at our affiliated sites in Alaska or on an American Indian reservation in New Mexico, in cooperation with the Indian Health Service (IHS). Abroad, we offer pharmacy mission rotations in Guatemala and Vietnam to expose students to a non-traditional pharmacy experience.
However you choose to complete your PharmD, Temple will thoroughly prepare you for a successful career as a practitioner in the middle of one of the most well-connected cities in the world.
