  5. Program Description ↑ 

    Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Pharmacy is a private institution that was founded in 1999.  The College is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).  We have campuses located in Henderson, NV and South Jordan, UT. 

    The College offers a three year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program as well as a dual PharmD/MBA degree in three years.  Our graduates have an outstanding NAPLEX board exam passing rate.  Our block curriculum allows you to focus on one core subject at a time, and our longitudinal blocks reinforce learning over the course of the entire year. Students are required to meet 90% or higher on each assessment. The rigor associated with the program combined with the 90% or higher competency levels helps to ensure that all of our graduates are well prepared for a career in pharmacy.  We are proud of our student-centered, collaborative learning environment.  We offer early IPPE experiences starting the beginning of your P1 year and we have outstanding clinical practice sites to develop your professional knowledge and skills.

    As our mission states, our curriculum is designed to prepare students to become highly competent, caring, ethical pharmacists who are leaders within the profession and are dedicated to the provision of patient-centered care. Upon graduation, you will be ready to enter practice in your chosen area, whether that is community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, one of the various specialty pharmacy practices, or to continue your pharmacy education by pursuing post-graduate opportunities.
