The professional program of the College of Pharmacy prepares students as generalists for contemporary practice in a variety of pharmacy settings. The professional elective program is comprised of a minimum of 10 hours of primarily didactic professional and other approved elective courses which must be completed prior to entering the P-4 year.
At least seven of the ten must be completed per College of Pharmacy faculty elective courses or other UNMC programs. Three of the ten may be taken at other accredited educational institutions following approval by the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. The ten hours of professional or other approved electives must be completed by every student while enrolled in the professional program regardless of prior college background or experience. These courses cannot be transferred as credit hours earned prior to enrollment.
