How does the program work?
The first two years are the pre-professional years (PP1 and PP2), the final four years are the professional years of the program (P1-P4).
Am I guaranteed a seat in the professional years of the pharmacy program?
Yes! If you are admitted into the EA pharmacy, you have a spot in the PharmD program.
Do I need to apply to the professional part of the program?
Yes. You do need to complete a PharmCAS application and complete an interview with the pharmacy admissions committee during your second year (PP2 year) as part of our accreditation process. However, if you meet the progression requirements, you will be guaranteed a seat in the P1 year (your third year at Northeastern). Northeastern faculty and advisors work with you to stay on track.
