P2-P3 students begin the MS curriculum in the academic year immediately following admission.
P1 students are generally advised to begin the MS curriculum after completing P2 year but can choose to pursue the MS after P1 year based on their academic background and preparation for graduate study.
Students rejoin the PharmD curriculum after completing the MS coursework, which takes two semesters. They continue to do research on their MS project during the remaining time in the PharmD program.
Dual and collaborative degree program students may have different elective course requirements. Consult your advisors.
