New 3-Year Doctor of Pharmacy Program

July 14, 2021


California Health Sciences University (CHSU) is proud to offer a new, 3-year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program to start in fall 2022, contingent upon various approvals during the accreditation process.*

Under the leadership of Dr. Mark Okamoto, a successful and experienced Dean who has assisted in the development of three new PharmD programs throughout the nation, CHSU’s new, 3-year Doctor of Pharmacy program allows students to save on cost of attendance and enter the workforce one year earlier than most PharmD schools.

The new, 3-year program is sharply focused on student success and quality. The curriculum prepares students to be highly trained, compassionate pharmacists who are competitive in the pharmacy field through successful completion of didactic courses, labs, and clinical experiences. Applications for the inaugural class of 50 students will be accepted starting July 14, 2021 through the website.
