    The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy in cooperation with The University of Texas at El Paso offers a six-year curriculum leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. This program offers a course of study in the pharmaceutical and clinical sciences designed to provide to the community, pharmacists who are scientifically trained and clinically competent to deliver a full spectrum of pharmaceutical services in all areas of practice.

    The Pharm.D. degree is designed to prepare men and women whose abilities and career aspirations suggest significant potential for innovative leadership in professional practice. In addition, this degree will prepare students to practice pharmacy in a contemporary setting, whether in a community or hospital pharmacy, in a long-term care facility, or in the pharmaceutical industry. This objective is met through a balanced program of study in pharmaceutics, pharmaceutical and natural products chemistry, pharmacology, therapeutics, pharmacy administration, natural and social sciences, and the humanities, as well as a structured clinical and professional practice experience program. In addition, the curriculum is aimed at inculcating an understanding of the basic sciences sufficient to prepare the student for graduate study in the pharmaceutical sciences.

    The Cooperative Pharmacy Program, located on the UTEP campus, is designed to facilitate access to the College of Pharmacy at Austin by providing opportunities to fulfill pre-pharmacy requirements in El Paso. At present, the first two years of pre-pharmacy curriculum (e.g., organic chemistry, calculus, and physics) are offered at UTEP. In the third and fourth year of the 6-year curriculum, students study in Austin at the College of Pharmacy and the remaining approximate two years are spent in El Paso.

    The Pharmacy Scholars Program (PSP), which is an integral part of the Cooperative Pharmacy Program, provides highly qualified high school seniors conditional admission to The University of Texas College of Pharmacy and supplements the usual application process for admission to UT College of Pharmacy. A select number of students will be chosen to enroll each year into the program. These undergraduates may select any major of their choice [provided pre-pharmacy prerequisites are fulfilled] and are encouraged to take advantage of the diversity and many opportunities at UTEP. Students selected for this program attend UTEP for approximately two years to complete their pre-pharmacy curriculum and, after maintaining required criteria, will move to Austin to attend the College of Pharmacy for approximately two years. The final approximate two years of the six-year curriculum will be completed in El Paso, and successful candidates will receive their Pharm.D. degree from the The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy, in cooperation with the Cooperative Pharmacy Program at UTEP.

    Further information about the program can be obtained from the Program Assistant who is located at 1100 N. Stanton, Suite 201, El Paso, TX 79902 (915/747-8519). [top of page]
