Florida A M University – Online Pharmacy & Pharmacy Technician Degrees

DESCRIPTION

The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is one of 12 colleges and schools that comprise Florida A & M University.

  • The University is located in Tallahassee, Florida’s capital. Of the University’s approximately 12,000 students, over 800 future pharmacists and graduate students are matriculating in the College of Pharmacy’s degree programs.
  • Currently, students are enrolled in the entry-level Pharm.D., post-B.S. Pharm.D., M.S. in pharmaceutical sciences, Ph.D. in the pharmaceutical sciences, and the Master in Public Health. The College is housed in the Dyson Pharmacy Building which houses spacious classrooms, a large lecture hall, an instructional materials resource center, teaching laboratories, a learning resource center, numerous research laboratories and an array of scientific equipment.
  • The faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the best academic training possible while continually exposing the students to the latest in the practical and theoretical aspects of pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences.
  • The University provides eight permanent residence halls. The residence halls are equipped with reception rooms, recreational and laundry facilities. Students residing in campus housing generally participate in the student meal plan. Students desiring on-campus housing must submit a room and board contract with a deposit to the Director of Housing each academic year prior to the semester for which an assignment is requested.


CURRICULUM

The pharmacy program provides students with exposure to and involvement in educational and cultural activities to prepare them for the professional and administrative aspects of general practice, institutional practice, and advanced studies leading to research in industry or government service.

  • The program is designed to accommodate students of widely varying pharmaceutical interests and backgrounds. The College subscribes to a six academic year program divided into three phases-Phase A, the basic education component; Phase B, preclinical instruction, including the biomedical, pharmaceutical and sociobehavioral sciences; and Phase C, the clinical component during the last two semesters of the program.
  • The School identifies its students according to the phase of the curriculum in which each is enrolled. Phase A represents a motivational component of the curriculum for the new student; Phase C, a refining practicum for the new professional.
  • Students are required to relocate to one of our branch campuses for the completion of their sixth (last) year, which is the clerkship phase of the program. We currently have branch campuses in Jacksonville, Miami, and Tampa.
  • The relocation is assigned and the student must relocate at his/her expense. The supervised externship program is also an integral part of the clinical component of the professional curriculum. This program allows students to observe and participate in the practical application of the materials learned during their didactic coursework.
