Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Curriculum


Pre-Pharmacy Curriculum

Courses include general and organic chemistry, molecular & cellular biology, microbiology, physiology, anatomy, statistics, and calculus. The curriculum is designed to introduce a wide variety of topics and cultures and strengthen critical thinking and communication skills. The pre-pharmacy curriculum takes about two years to complete.

Sample Pre-Pharmacy Class Schedule

Credit/No Credit - Spring 2020 - Spring 2021

The KU School of Pharmacy faculty and staff is concerned about all students preparing to apply for the Doctor of Pharmacy program. To provide some relief for our future students during the COVID-19 crisis, we will honor Credit/No Credit grades for all pre-pharmacy courses completed during the Spring 2020, Summer 2020, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. If a student decides to request a CR/NC grade over a letter grade for these semesters, it will not affect their status with the KU School of Pharmacy.
