Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) offers an online Doctor of Pharmacy - Postbaccalaureate Pathway degree. This program, aimed at students who have a bachelor's in pharmacy and are U.S.-licensed practicing pharmacists, begins every fall and requires one in-person orientation in August. Students can continue working as pharmacists full-time while completing... the program part-time, taking a total of 37 semester hours over two years with a four-week clinical rotation at the end.
The Blackboard platform is used for all online classes. The experiential work requirements can be completed at students' workplaces. MCPHS uses PioneerRX pharmacy software, which provides hands-on simulations and examples of real-world situations. Online students pay lower tuition rates than students attending courses on-campus. MCPHS participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program, dedicated to helping veterans succeed in their college careers.
Applications are completed on the school's website and a dedicated graduate admission team is available to help during the application process. Online students can access the school’s Center for Academic Success and Enrichment for help during the program and the Center for Professional Career Development for assistance after graduation.
