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 24 units for the MS in Global Medicine. Six units of MEDS elective units can be used toward the PharmD elective requirement, and PHRD 503  and PHRD 504  substitute for MEDS 503  and MEDS 504 .

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/Global Medicine dual degree program substitutes PHRD 503  and PHRD 504  for MEDS 503  and MEDS 504  as core requirements for the dual degree.
