Building the foundation for your future in pharmacy school

All students interested in obtaining a Doctor of Pharmacy degree at NEOMED are required to take pre-professional courses to build a strong education foundation prior to entering pharmacy school — a bachelor’s degree is not required These courses are designed to aid future pharmacists in the role they will play as health care providers in a culturally diverse society and to prepare students for successful completion of the pharmacy curriculum at NEOMED.

Prerequisite requirements are changing following the current year 2017-2018 application cycle. Please see the “Entering Fall 2019” column in the table below for requirements for students applying in the 2018-2019 application cycle and beyond. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]* Beginning with the 2018-2019 application cycle and beyond, this 6 semester hour requirement will be limited to English composition credits only. Literature courses that are not composition-based will not be accepted for this requirement, though they can still be used to fulfill the General Education requirement.

** General Education and/or additional science courses are defined as humanities, social science, business, computer literacy, and additional coursework in the other prerequisite categories.  A course can be used only once to fulfill a prerequisite. If, for example, a student takes a four credit hour Communications course to fulfill the three credit hour Communications requirement, the extra one credit hour may be carried over toward fulfilling the General Education requirement. 

Quarter Hours: If your college uses quarter hours rather than semester hours, you may multiply your quarter hours by 2/3 (0.66) to convert to semester hours to estimate completion. NEOMED will refer to PharmCAS calculations in the admission decision.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_width=”full” css=”.vc_custom_1488219142766{background-color: #5b8727 !important;}”][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text el_class=”white”]
