The practice-level degree for pharmacists is the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. In order to become a pharmacist in the United States, a student must graduate from an accredited pharmacy program and successfully complete the national and state licensure exams. The Doctor of Pharmacy program at UMKC is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

Pharmacy is an exciting and challenging profession. Please explore our site to learn more about our program and the variety of career options you can pursue with a Pharm.D. degree.
