About Pre-Pharmacy at UB

The doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) program is a four-year professional program, following a minimum of two or three years of undergraduate pre-pharmacy coursework. The PharmD is an entry-level 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. The program includes a set of courses that prepares students for admission to the professional PharmD program following a minimum of two or three years of undergraduate pre-pharmacy coursework.
