All UToledo students who major in pharmaceutical sciences or pharmacy (PharmD) begin in the pre-pharmacy program.
The University of Toledo offers five pharmaceutical sciences bachelor’s degrees, as well as the PharmD program for those who want to be pharmacists. All undergraduates in those programs must take the same pre-professional courses during their first two years.
Our pre-pharmacy program provides a variety of application pathways to the PharmD program. Exceptionally qualified high-school seniors can apply for contingent admission to the professional division of the PharmD program when they apply to UToledo. You also can apply to the professional division of the program after your first or second year as a pre-pharmacy student.
Outstanding advisers = student success. The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences’ award-winning academic advisers help students plot career paths and set clear goals.
Nationally ranked PharmD program. UToledo’s Doctor of Pharmacy program is one of the best in the U.S. Pharmacy students study on our Health Science Campus, which includes The University of Toledo Medical Center. Undergraduates participate in patient care and learn with students from other health-care professions.
Pre-pharmacy students take an introductory physiology course, along with basic science courses such as chemistry, biology, physics and calculus.
Undergraduate research is encouraged. Pre-pharmacy students learn from faculty members who conduct cutting-edge research in cancer, diabetes, kidney disease and more.
Pharmacy camps are offered for prospective students of the PharmD and the pharmaceutical sciences bachelor’s degree programs in the summer between the junior and senior years of high school. The college also encourages shadowing of current students, and offers daily visits to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
