The doctor of pharmacy degree (PharmD) is a professional degree that enables one to work as a pharmacist, interacting with patients and other health care practitioners about medications.
The BS/PharmD program combines three years of undergraduate study in biological sciences and four years of graduate work in pharmacy. A combined BS/PharmD degree is awarded after seven years. Application to the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is made following the second year at UB.
