The BS/PharmD Combined Degree Program combines three years of undergraduate study in biological sciences and four years of graduate work in pharmacy. A combined BS/PharmD degree is awarded after seven years. Application to the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is made following the second year at UB. The Doctor of Pharmacy Degree (PharmD) is a professional degree that enables one to work as a pharmacist, interacting with patients and other health care practitioners about medications.
Incoming fall freshmen entering UB from high school are admitted to the combined BS/PharmD program via the application for undergraduate admission. Students should declare the combined BS/PharmD major before December 31 of the first/fall semester freshman year.
Students will apply directly to the PharmD Doctor of Pharmacy Degree following their second year of study at UB via PharmCAS. Visit the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical website for details.
