The American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE), the accrediting body for colleges and schools of pharmacy, required that all baccalaureate programs in pharmacy be discontinued after Fall 2001. Consequently, the Pharm.D. currently represents the only option for students interested in a career in pharmacy. We strongly suggest that the pre-pharmacy student follow the B.S. Biology paradigm to maximize performance on the PCAT admissions test as well as make the student more competitive in this new applicant pool. Please contact a Pre-Professional Advisor in the Department of Biology for further information. Students interested in pharmaceutical laboratory research may want to contact the Pre-Professional Advisor in the Department of Chemistry.
