The Doctor of Pharmacy Program, which has been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education since January 2004, is structured so that the classroom (didactic) component of the curriculum can be completed in two calendar years. Our didactic curriculum follows a block model, where students focus on one content area at a time, classroom learning occurs from 8 am to 3 pm daily with an hour for lunch, and traditional lecturing is strongly supported by active learning.
The merits of the Roseman system are many, including the ability to really learn subject matter in depth without distraction from several other classes, the ability to support students' different learning styles through the varied activities that take place during the six-hour classroom day, and the ability for students to perform at higher levels.
Additionally, our program is committed to the importance of early experiential learning that is integrated with didactic coursework. Consequently, upon entering the Roseman College of Pharmacy, you will be placed in a pharmacy with a pharmacist preceptor, who will help you gain the professional knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors needed to become a successful pharmacist. Additionally, you will be given the opportunity to relate the concepts presented in the classroom to the realities of contemporary pharmacy practice. All of the pharmacy practice experiences and classroom learning that take place during the first two years of the curriculum culminate in the final year's advanced pharmacy practice experiences. In these experiences, you will be placed with clinical pharmacy specialists and be able to increase your patient care responsibilities as you ready yourself to enter your pharmacy practice.
As our mission states, our curriculum is designed to prepare students to become 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 pursing post-graduate opportunities.
