About the Professional Pharmacy Degree Program


The entire four-year Professional Pharmacy Degree Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmaceutical Education. Graduates of the Doctor of Pharmacy program successfully attain residency opportunities at the most prestigious hospitals, clinics, and other facilities in the United States. Senior students complete practice experiences in over 30 different areas of pharmacy practice. Four senior practice experiences are elective in nature to enable students to be more fully aware of desirable career options prior to graduation.  Over the last five years, University of Mississippi graduates have one of the highest first-time pass rates on the national pharmacy licensure exam of all schools/colleges of pharmacy.  At the time of graduation, Doctor of Pharmacy graduates are acknowledged by preceptors associated with students from other schools of pharmacy as having excellent communication and problem solving skills.
