Pharm D Program
The Touro University College of Pharmacy PharmD program is a four-year Doctor of Pharmacy program that prepares students for a clinically-oriented, contemporary pharmacy practice. A unique feature of the program is a two-year pharmacy practice or clerkship experience. This enhanced exposure to patients is designed to create a more clinically mature graduate who is more fully prepared to enter pharmacy practice or pursue post-graduate pharmacy residencies, fellowships or graduate work. Other strengths of the program include a teamwork approach to building communication, organization and leadership skills and the embedded use of technology to assist in learning.
PharmD-MPh Dual Degree Program
Touro students and faculty are involved in significant community outreach. Two factors have strengthened the outreach efforts of the TUC COP: the increasing amount of interprofessional activity and the Public Health program which has provided expertise about how to go about community outreach. The dual degree PharmD/MPH program has been particularly effective in producing a cadre of students who think about providing clinical pharmacy services in the context of health policy, epidemiology and health demographics (public health).
Masters of Science Medical Health Sciences program with emphasis on the Pharmaceutical Sciences (MSMHS-PS) is a new program being offered by the College of Pharmacy. See the link for the latest information on the MSMHS-PS program. The development of this program is directed towards students who want to learn how to conduct research and scholarship activites.
