Pharmacy is a rapidly changing profession with multiple career track opportunities. The faculty and administration at High Point University believe it is essential that our graduates are prepared to lead and be flexible enough to adjust in these times of change. The Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy has been created to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to design and manage medication therapies that meet both current and future needs. Students will receive an education that will position them to practice pharmacy in a variety of settings, or to pursue advanced clinical or academic training.
Students earn their Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) after four rigorous years of education after completion of a pre-professional track (normally two years). Students are not penalized if they complete the pre professional track in three or four years instead of two but the additional courses taken during this time do not affect the number of credit hours necessary to complete the PharmD portion of the program. A bachelor’s degree is not required prior to entry into the PharmD program.
