Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD)

Our graduates are among the most sought-after in the country.  As part of a program that promotes excellence and integrity, we prepare the pharmacist, as a therapeutic drug manager, to be a member of the health-care team working with physicians, non-physician providers, and other allied health professionals.

The PharmD program is a four-year professional program, following undergraduate pre-pharmacy coursework. It is a professional degree that enables one to work as a pharmacist, interacting with patients and other health care practitioners for matters involving treatment by medications. Pre-pharmacy at UB is not a baccalaureate degree granting program; instead it is a pre-professional academic pathway similar to pre-medicine or pre-law.

Upon graduating, our students have many career options including working in the community, a hospital, a university, government agencies, pharmaceutical research companies, nursing homes, hospice and home care. Pharmacists can also choose a specific population to work with such as newborns and geriatrics.
