Program Description:

Creighton University offers the first and only accredited Web-Based Distance pathway (Online Pharmacy Program) providing a full-time educational method to obtain a Doctor of Pharmacy degree. This innovative pathway covers the same material as the traditional on-campus pathway, but allows students to take didactic coursework using distance mechanisms, which include the Internet and CD-ROMs, from wherever they live. Interactions with faculty and mentors occur via Internet chat rooms, e-mail, fax, and telephone.

The didactic portion of the Web-Based Distance pathway is taught on a semester basis. Students complete the laboratory courses in a condensed manner during the summers. The on-campus laboratory sessions last for 1-2 weeks.

The Doctor of Pharmacy degree requires a minimum of two years of pre-pharmacy and four years of professional education.
