The College of Pharmacy offers the Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree. The PharmD is the highest level of professional education in pharmacy and has been approved by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as the sole entry-level degree for the profession.
The PharmD curriculum at UIC emphasizes a patient-centered course of study and provides a structure that will enable students to develop into reflective practitioners with skills and attitudes to anticipate change, criticize, evaluate, and modify practice in a changing healthcare arena. The curriculum also provides a fundamental core of knowledge, skills, and attitudes, which in composite, promote the fulfillment of the adopted professional competencies for a generalist practitioner who delivers pharmaceutical care.
The UIC College of Pharmacy, in collaboration with the University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System, are proud of the over 40 year history of training post-graduate pharmacists in clinical service and research through our PGY1 and PGY2 residencies as well as our clinical research fellowships.
