The Pharm.D. - Doctor of Pharmacy degree is a three-year, accelerated professional degree composed of eight, 15-week trimesters where students will begin in the fall of each year. Personalized education is a core value for Chapman University, therefore, for many pharmacy courses students will be broken up into smaller groups of 15 or 30.
What Makes Us Unique?
This unique full-time program will have integrated “Study & Reflection” periods in the schedule to provide student pharmacists with the ability to prepare for classes, study new material, or reflect upon what they have learned within the day. This program is also unique in its delivery of innovative and student-centered flipped classroom methods of instruction. Instead of sitting in class listening to professors lecture, class time will be devoted to discussion and active learning exercises. To succeed at CUSP, students will be required to have viewed lectures and completed the assigned readings before coming to class. Quizzes will be given at the beginning of class to allow students to demonstrate the knowledge gained from the pre-class work, and allow faculty to tailor the discussion and active learning exercises to best meet student needs.
Learning to work with other health professionals on a health care team will be a major emphasis of the CUSP program. Students will spend time during the program learning and working beside physician assistant, nursing, or physical therapy students. This inter-professional environment will allow students to work on their communication and team-building skills, in addition to demonstrating the value that each profession brings to the patient care process.
