PharmD/PhD Dual Degree

About the Program

The University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy has developed a unique, integrated PharmD/PhD Dual Degree Program for highly qualified students. This program combines the existing PharmD with the PhD program in Pharmaceutical Sciences. Students who are accepted into the program are expected to pursue research in pharmaceutical sciences during the fall, spring and the summer of the first, second and third academic year of the PharmD. program. Upon graduation from the PharmD program, the student is expected to transition full time into the PhD program.

The objective of the PharmD/PhD dual degree program at the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy is to train highly qualified pharmaceutical scientists for academic, industrial and governmental positions and increase the number of highly trained clinician-researchers that can operate at the interface between basic research and clinical settings to facilitate faster translational innovations into the patient.

Applications are due by April 1st. Admission requirements, a minimum GPA of 3.0, a minimum GRE score of 300 in addition to some previous research experience.
