PharmD Curriculum and Information

Each fall the newly admitted class of PharmD students begins a prescribed four-year curriculum as a cohort. Students may be admitted to study at either the UA campus in Tucson or the Phoenix Biomedical Campus; they will all be members of the same cohort. Classes are named for their year of graduation.

Currently the PharmD Classes of 2017 and 2018 follow a schedule for courses that is slightly different than the curricula set for the Class of 2019 and forward.

Links to current schedules are available here.

The curriculum for the PharmD program may be delivered by the faculty using a variety of modes including in-class, online, hybrids of in-class and online, teleconferenced or pre-recorded classroom lessons.

This video shows student pharmacists learning new skills in a course led by faculty member Sid Patanwala and a guest instructor. Patanwala uses the "flipped classroom" concept for much of his teaching, which results in more active learning. See a recent story about our college's professors who are engaging in these teaching methods.
