Doctoral program extended at St. Louis College of Pharmacy
ST. LOUIS — St. Louis College of Pharmacy is extending its doctor of pharmacy program to span seven years.
Beginning in the 2014 academic year, the program — which currently is six years for students — will allow students to achieve a bachelor of science degree after four academic years and also will provide opportunities for electives and time for patient-centered and interprofessional initiatives, according to the St. Louis Business Journal.
In June 2011, St. Louis College of Pharmacy launched a strategic plan called STLCOP 20/20, which is designed to help the school "strive to diversify [our] academic offerings; advance a community-centered research and scholarship agenda; establish economically sustainable pharmacy practice models; ensure that personal and professional growth is a hallmark of the STLCOP community; and reach beyond [our] campus to impact [our] communities in innovative ways."
