With the expanding needs in health care today and tomorrow, there is a growing need to translate today’s research findings into tomorrows health care solutions.
The WSU College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPPS) has a long history of training Ph.D. students, and has recently invigorated its Ph.D. program in pharmaceutical sciences following consolidation of the college in Spokane.
In collaboration with the WSU Graduate School, the CPPS has established a combined, sequential Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.)/Ph.D. program that allows some aspects of the Ph.D. experience to be initiated during the Pharm.D. curriculum.
The goal of this program is to integrate and expedite completion of the dual degrees in a time frame that is approximately two years shorter than it would be otherwise.
