Students enrolled in the joint program take classes that meet the curriculum requirements for both a PharmD and MPH. All PharmD/MPH graduates will fulfill the same competencies that guide the MPH program.
PharmD/MPH students work with advisors from both the School of Pharmacy and the MPH Program to design a flexible program of study that enables them to use their electives strategically to begin graduate MPH coursework. Depending on your matriculation year into the PharmD program, the number of elective slots and the semesters in which they are available will vary. Generally, your program of study will include these courses:
Please see the MPH Program Page for curriculum details. A maximum of 5 MPH core courses can be taken by undergraduate Pharmacy majors (Pharmacy majors are considered “undergraduates” until the summer of their P3 year).
PharmD students are required to complete 6 six-week APPE rotations in their final PharmD year. One of those rotations can be a public health-orientated placement.
Once the PharmD is conferred, students remain enrolled in the MPH degree program, focusing exclusively on remaining MPH requirements. Students have the option of completing the remaining MPH coursework as full-time students or as part-time students, where length of program is dependent upon the student’s chosen course load.
Interested PharmD students must apply during the Spring of their P2 year.
