School of Pharmacy LIU


Pharm.D. Program

Today's pharmacists don't simply dispense medications , they're actively involved in the creation, evaluation and delivery of complex pharmaceuticals and therapeutics that enhance patient health.

LIU Doctorate of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) is a six-year program (209 credits, one year after the BPharm). The program emphasizes an integrated and problem-based approach to disease management. It provides pharmacists with a good clinical and community experience in patient monitoring and consultation with other healthcare professionals. The program is a series of seven, four-week rotations known as advanced pharmacy practice experiences (APPEs). APPEs are divided into major and elective and each includes 30 hours per week of on-site experience supervised by a faculty preceptor.

The program offers APPEs in cardiology, internal medicine, pediatrics, critical care, oncology, infectious disease, endocrinology, and ambulatory care.
