After successful completion of additional coursework in the first and second year of the PharmD program, a student is awarded a degree in Medicinal Chemistry. This degree is attractive to early admission applicants who have yet to complete a four-year degree, but have the prerequisites for the PharmD program.
"The pre-pharmacy program gave me the opportunity to get involved in the pharmacy school while I was taking my undergraduate courses and get a glimpse of what was going to come next for me. It was easy to interact with the students who were already in pharmacy school at the time and get their advice and opinions.”
-- Jennifer Cortes, PharmD alumnus, Critical care pharmacy resident at Shands Jacksonville
