PharmD Program and Curriculum

The curriculum at California Northstate University College of Pharmacy (CNUCOP) is a minimum of four (4) years, post-baccalaureate, and leads to a Doctor of Pharmacy degree (PharmD). The core curriculum covers a series of courses within the major sub disciplines of biomedical, pharmaceutical, social/behavioral/administrative, clinical, and integrated sciences.

In the first three years TBL is used in many of our courses to help students become active, self-directed learners. TBL promotes judgment, mastery of content, communication, teamwork skills, problem-solving, and critical thinking. TBL emphasizes the importance of individual accountability, group collaboration, and the application of basic concepts to work through team assignments. The role of the instructor is to clearly articulate the learning objectives, create challenging problems for students to solve, and probe their reasoning in reaching conclusions.
