PharmD/MPH Curriculum

Students complete the first and second professional year in the PharmD curriculum. In the third year, students complete both required and elective MPH courses. In the fourth year, students take courses in both programs.

The joint program reduces the usual pattern of a four-year PharmD program and a two-year MPH program by one year. Each candidate must meet all the degree requirements of each school, except for the reduction in total credit hours.
