Certificate in Clinical Pharmacy Practice | Curriculum

Bulletin

This certificate program will comprise two calendar years of education and training at the MUSC and affiliated health-system partners. Although the program is designed for two years duration, a student may apply for an extension when they are making progress toward completion but require additional time. However, due to the F-1 visa requirements, an extension due to a delay in completion will only be considered if caused by compelling academic or medical reasons, such as changes of major or research topics, unexpected research problems or documented illnesses. For all students, a written timetable for certificate completion will be maintained.
