Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Information and Application Guide (includes curriculum overview, laptop requirements, application forms and much more)
Guide - in PDF format
This degree program is a four-year course of study that requires the completion of the pre-pharmacy curriculum prior to admission. The Pharm.D. curriculum is designed to facilitate the development of those abilities necessary for entry-level practitioners in various practice settings. Consistent with accreditation standards and guidelines, the curriculum provides an appropriate balance of coursework in the following areas: biomedical sciences (basic and clinical); pharmaceutical sciences, behavioral, social, and administrative pharmacy sciences; pharmacy practice; and pharmacy practice experience. The goal of the curriculum is to train students to be life-long learners who can provide pharmaceutical care. To accomplish this, the curriculum involves students in continuous patient care responsibilities starting upon entry into the Harrison School of Pharmacy. Students also participate as active, self-directed learners in interdisciplinary teaching models.
Pharmacy Care Systems (M.S., Ph.D.) Application Information and Guide
The Department of Pharmacy Care Systems is concerned with the socio-behavioral, economic and administrative sciences in pharmacy. The long-range goal of the graduate program in Pharmacy Care Systems is to produce graduates who have unique and needed capabilities for addressing problems regarding drug use control in our society. If you have interests in communication, economics, informatics, facilities design or management, reducing medication errors, Pharmacy Care Systems has innovative programs focusing on study of the social and administrative aspects of pharmacy practice. The Masters of Science (M.S.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) are offered by Department of Pharmacy Care Systems.
Pharmacal Sciences (M.S., Ph.D.) Application Information and Guide
Graduate study in pharmaceutical sciences leads to the degree of Master of Science. In addition, a Doctor of Philosophy in pharmaceutical sciences is offered through an interdepartmental program (PYS) by the Departments of Pharmacal Sciences and Pharmacy Care Systems. The graduate programs of the Department of Pharmacal Sciences are designed to prepare students for teaching and research careers in academia, the pharmaceutical industry and public and private research institutes. Students are expected to select an area of specialization from one of the pharmaceutical science disciplines including medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, toxicology and pharmaceutics.
Auburn University is offering an exciting new
Graduate Certificate Program in Medical Chemistry.
This program enables students to obtain training and to
become credentialed in the field of medicinal chemistry.
This field encompasses the study of drug mechanisms of
action and biodisposition (absorption, distribution,
metabolism and elimination), the design and synthesis of
bioactive molecules, the detection and quantification of
bioactive molecules, and the chemistry of natural
products. Thus, the knowledge base and credentialing
available through this program will enhance the ability
of graduate students to obtain employment, particularly,
but not exclusively, in the pharmaceutical industry.
This program is being jointly administered by the
Department of Pharmacal Sciences and the Department of
Chemistry and Biochemistry. Therefore, interested
students and/or their faculty advisors should contact
Prof. Jack DeRuiter <firstname.lastname@example.org>
(Pharmacal Sciences) or Prof. Stewart Schneller <email@example.com>
(Chemistry and Biochemistry) for more information.
