PharmD/MPH – Dual Degree Option
Pharmacists are taking on a much larger role in patient-centered healthcare delivery, especially in managing chronic diseases and providing medical counseling.
A Master of Public Health (MPH) degree is an advantage to pharmacists, who are increasingly expanding their capabilities to bring healthcare to the community.
PharmD/MPH graduates will broaden their knowledge and expertise about public health competencies. Public health can also help expand practitioners’ impact to a larger population to achieve optimal patient outcomes.
The MPH Professional Option (renamed: Public Health Leadership in Fall 2020) is 42 credit hours with the potential to apply 9 PharmD credit hours, pending faculty review and approval. Courses are delivered online, allowing students to complete coursework any time of day. Experiential learning hours may also be eligible for application to both programs in certain circumstances.
Completion time will vary based on degree plan and enrollment pace. The majority of students complete the MPH program concurrently during their 4 years in the PharmD program. The MPH completion requirement is 6 years.
