About the Program
The Pre-Doctor of Pharmacy program is a two-year, non-degree program. Although the emphasis of the coursework is focused on biology, chemistry, physics, and math, Pre-Pharmacy students are also required to take a course apiece in composition and economics.
This plan of study is specifically designed for students preparing to apply for admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. This is a non-degree seeking curriculum. Also note that admission into and completion of the Pre-Pharmacy program does not guarantee admission into Purdue’s four-year PharmD program.
Because of the accelerated pace of our Pre-Doctor of Pharmacy program (our peer university’s pre-pharmacy programs are four years), students incur two years less debt and get onto the job market two years faster.
