Pharmacists who previously earned a bachelor's degree in pharmacy in the U.S. or abroad may choose to pursue a traditional or nontraditional post-BS Pharm.D. degree offered by a college or school of pharmacy in the United States. Pharmacists may enter a post-B.S. Pharm.D. program with advanced standing (e.g., in the P2 year).
AACP collects information on post-BS Pharm.D. degree programs to assist pharmacists who are seeking additional training and support members schools that offer these pathways. NABP also uses the post-BS program data to determine whether foreign-trained pharmacists who earn a Pharm.D. degree in the U.S. must also complete the Foreign Pharmacy Graduate Examination Committee (FPGEC) Certification. Post-BS program data was previously captured in Table 2 of the Pharmacy School Admission Requirements (PSAR). The PSAR was replaced by dynamic reports on the PharmCAS
website. Updated post-BS program data resulting from this form will be posted as a stand-alone table on the AACP website in 2021. Do NOT use this form to report data on your school's entry-level Pharm.D. degree program for students without a pharmacy degree.
If your school offers or will offer a traditional or nontraditional (full or part-time) post-BS Pharm.D. degree program to any U.S. and/or foreign-trained pharmacists, please complete this form by January 25, 2021.
