Are you interested in becoming a pharmacist?

Join the Early Assurance Program (EAP) and assure availability of a position in the OSU/OHSU Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program!

EAP is designed for high school seniors, current college students, and post-baccalaureate students to assure the availability of a position in our Pharm.D. program! EAP students complete undergraduate prerequisite coursework at any accredited institution, while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in a field of their choice. They may also complete Pharm.D. prerequisite coursework without earning a bachelor's degree. Students engage in professional development opportunities and gain experience in the healthcare field. As an EAP student, you have a seat in the professional program reserved for you!

Why Join the Early Assurance Program?

Other than the fact that you have position available in the program, EAP students engage in a number of activities that prepare them for the pharmacy program. EAP students get individualized help with their resumes, have access to the College of Pharmacy faculty, engage in a number of co-curricular and professional development experiences, and develop goals alongside an EAP advisor to help them become leaders of their pharmacy class. As a result, EAP students are well prepared to enter into pharmacy school and find success in their pharmacy journey.
