Pathways for Entry to the PharmD/BS in Health Sciences program

The Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program at Husson University prepares students for rewarding careers in the diverse field of pharmacy through rigorous academic coursework and hands-on practical experience.

We offer pathways for both high school graduates and transfer students:

  • Through the six-year PharmD/Bachelor of Science (BS) in Health Sciences program, you’ll enter as a first-year student in the Health Sciences program, and after meeting the admissions requirements after your first two years, you’ll enter into the professional phase of the PharmD program. This pathway works for both transfer students from a 2- or 4- year institution who have not met the program prerequisites and recent high school graduates.
  • Students who are transferring from another 2- or 4-year institution and have met all program prerequisites may apply directly to the PharmD program.

THE CURRICULUM

The curriculum for the PharmD degree program includes advanced pharmacy classes, labs and clinical experiences. You’ll take a diverse array of courses, from pharmacy law and clinical drug interactions to medical biochemistry and pharmacy practice management, in order to prepare for practice in a wide variety of clinical and research career settings.
