College of Pharmacy | Clinical Pharmacy Practice

Bulletin

The Graduate Certificate Program is designed to provide focused and in-depth training in Clinical Pharmacy Practice for international pharmacy graduates who are unable to receive such training in their home country. The program includes classroom instruction and part-time curricular practical training (CPT). Domestic candidates may apply, however other avenues for obtaining such training are readily available for domestic pharmacy graduates. This program is designed as a two-year experience to provide the student with the necessary education and training to enter into high level clinical practice or academic career in clinical pharmacy.  The curricular courses for the program will be both classroom and experiential in nature, allowing the student to learn and apply didactic knowledge to patient care situations. After completion of the program the students may apply what they have learned in the program in their home country, or, if a US pharmacy license is obtained, go on for further training in a pharmacy residency program.
