As a student, you will begin earning your Pharm.D. at the start of the academic year in September. Students will complete a total of 11 terms. Fisher Pharm.D. Online is a full-time doctoral program, and students should plan to commit approximately three hours per week per credit enrolled. Summers one and two will require approximately 30–35 hours of didactic work per week, followed by up to four weeks of full-time clinical rotations. Year four (including the summer term) will consist of full-time clinical rotations each term.
Your last three semesters in the program will consist exclusively of Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) rotations. Each rotation will require at least40 hours of weekly, in-person work, with the possibility of an additional time commitment depending on your preceptor’s requirements.
