Health Sciences, B.S. to Pharmacy, Pharm.D. Accelerated Program
The B.S. in Health Sciences to Pharm.D. accelerated program allows students working toward a Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences at SLU to apply for admission into the first professional (P1) year of the Pharm.D. after three years of undergraduate study in the health sciences program. Courses taken as part of the P1 year will reverse transfer to Saint Louis University and fulfill senior-level degree requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences.
St. Louis College of Pharmacy provides a challenging learning environment where pharmacy students can explore a variety of practice settings, develop medication expertise, and become leaders in the profession and their communities. The curriculum focuses on preparing students to provide interprofessional, evidence-based, patient-centered care in any practice setting, achieving positive drug therapy outcomes for patients.
