Begin your journey to a career in pharmacy.

Your Doctor of Pharmacy degree will unlock unlimited opportunity for your career in healthcare

The common image of a pharmacist is the person working behind the counter at your local pharmacy - getting your prescriptions covered by insurance and filled and answering your questions. That role - community retail pharmacist - can be financially rewarding and is critical to the health of community members, but it is far from the only option.

Enrolling in Temple's PharmD program is just the first step in starting your career in healthcare, where you'll find success and fulfillment in many ways. Come to us to get started.

Our alumni work in variety of environments, including but not limited to:

  • hospitals - rounding clinical units as part of healthcare teams
  • the pharmaceutical industry - helping to discover, launch, and educate on treatments that impact the world
  • health insurance - guiding coverage policies and supporting business decisions
  • behavioral health - helping to manage conditions that are currently overwhelming our healthcare system
  • entrepreneurship and other business, like tech/AI, medical supplies/equipment, and supply chain
  • "closed-door" pharmacy, like compounding and long and short-term care facility pharmacies
