Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice Grad Certificate

The Advanced Clinical Pharmacy Practice Graduate Certificate Program is designed for international scholars who have graduated from a five or six-year pharmacy program (PharmD or equivalent) outside the United States.

Currently, we have a small cohort of students from universities, hospitals, and government agencies. Our program is designed to be completed in two to three years on a full-time basis. Successful graduates of the program go on to complete residencies in Arizona and across the United States as well as contribute to research and new knowledge in scholarly publications.

Tailored Curriculum Designed for International Student

Faculty and staff in the certificate program have worked with international students for more than 20 years. We are here to help you navigate the program application as well as support you through your academic, clinical and professional progression in areas such as advanced clinical training for residency, preparation for the licensure and English proficiency exams, and more.
