Well-trained pharmacists are always in demand. According to the
Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for pharmacists will rise 17
percent by 2018. This growth is fueled by the increasing use
of prescription drugs by an aging population; scientific advances
leading to the introduction of new drugs; and pharmacists' growing
involvement in patient care.
If you’re interested in a rewarding career as a pharmacist,
discover the entry-level Doctor of Pharmacy Degree Program
(Pharm.D.) at St. John’s University. Offered by our College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences — one of the leading schools
of its kind — the program is designed to provide students with the
clinical and academic skills and knowledge needed to deliver
outstanding patient care in all pharmacy settings.
Students begin with the analytical and communications skills made
possible by a broad liberal arts foundation. This is combined with
pharmacy coursework, introduced early in the program. In their
final four years, students gain an intensive foundation in the
basic and applied pharmaceutical and clinical sciences.
In keeping with the metropolitan, Catholic and Vincentian mission of the
University, students gain first-hand clinical experience serving
diverse, often needy communities at more than 180 sites throughout
the New York area.
