Pharmacy programs prepare students to work in the pharmaceutical science field of health care. There are a number of different degrees available, including the bachelor of science in pharmaceutical sciences, master of science, doctor of pharmacy, and doctor of philosophy. Students must earn a bachelor of science degree in order to be accepted into doctor of pharmacy programs. Most programs include residency opportunities as well as fellowships. There are also a number of subspecialties available for students to focus on, including pharmacology, pharmacy administration, pharmaceutics, medicinal chemistry, and pharmacognosy.
The Pharm.D. degree allows students to focus specialize in patient care as well as product development and distribution. Students gain extensive clinical experience through externship components, and many dual degree, joint degree, and certificate programs are available. Some pharmacy graduate programs allow students to study other aspects of pharmacy, such as pharmaceutical economics, pharmaceutical sciences, regulatory science, and molecular toxicology.
