If you are a PharmD student or prospective student who has an intense interest in participating in drug discovery and development as a research scientist, applying clinical knowledge to developing or enhancing the use of medications, the dual degree PharmD/Ph.D. program may be an option for you. As a first step, please contact one of our advising staff for more information. The College of Pharmacy provides a curriculum that allows for simultaneous completion of some requirements of both programs. Dual degree students may utilize some of their PharmD coursework to partially satisfy Ph.D. course requirements. Students may also use their electives throughout the PharmD program to conduct research. Partial tuition relief is available for students who successfully complete both programs.
