Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Science, Global Medicine

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs, Minors and Certificates

The dual degree in Pharmacy and Global Medicine is designed for students who are interested in providing pharmaceutical care to underserved populations around the world. Students enrolled in this dual degree program will benefit from an advanced understanding of the role of, and issues surrounding, modern medicine in developing countries.


Students must gain admission to and fulfill the degree requirements for both programs, which include 136 units for the Doctor of Pharmacy and 32 units for the MS in Global Medicine.

Program Adaptation

Because MEDS 503  and MEDS 504 , core requirements for the MS in Global Medicine program, cover the same material as PHRD 503  and PHRD 504 , the PharmD/MS, Global Medicine dual degree program substitutes PHRD 503  and PHRD 504  for MEDS 503  and MEDS 504  as core requirements for the dual degree.


*Elective courses: Students MUST complete a minimum of 3 units of elective courses for the PharmD degree. Students will be provided a list of courses approved each year. 

**APPE courses are described below. Students may begin their APPEs in late March or early April of their P3 year and may be assigned to any of APPEs listed below.

Required APPE Courses

Students must complete all APPE courses below (24 units) and the Doctor of Pharmacy Capstone courses (0 units).
