Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.)
Our 6-year PharmD curriculum stresses critical thinking, active learning, and clinical experience to prepare you for practice in a variety of professional settings. The clinical portion of the program provides you with hands-on experience in hospitals, nursing homes, community pharmacies, government institutions, home healthcare settings, pharmacy benefits management companies, and other industries. We will work with you to place you in early and advanced experience practice sites that are aligned with your educational and career goals.
The College runs regular prospective student information sessions for the Pharm.D programs. The current schedule for these sessions can be found here. For general information about admission, financial aid, and applying to URI, please visit the Office of Admission.
Our students are involved in a wide range of activities that include their participation in student organizations affiliated with the College. We encourage our students to have a breadth of experiences beyond the classroom, including participation in international educational opportunities and attending and presenting at professional conferences.
The College is engaged in active assessment of all of its academic programs. We continuously collect and analyze data so that we can demonstrate that our programs are meeting expectations of both internal and external stakeholders. The College also surveys the graduating class each year to obtain their feedback on the Pharm.D. program and to learn their post-graduation plans. See Class of 2014 survey results.
