Our four year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) is a professional degree program where we prepare our students to be therapeutic drug managers, working as integrated members of the health-care team along with physicians, non-physician providers, and other allied health professionals.
We are also proud to offer pre-pharmacy at UB, whch is not a baccalaureate degree granting program; instead it is a pre-professional academic pathway similar to pre-medicine or pre-law.
Our graduates have many career options including working in community pharmacies, hospitals or physician practice sites, universities, government agencies, pharmaceutical research companies, nursing homes, as well as hospice and home care. Pharmacists can also work with specific populations ranging from newborns to geriatrics as well as focus on many specialties such as cardiology and infectious disease.
