College of Pharmacy
Part Scientist. Part Patient Advocate. Part Strategist. Today's pharmacist does much more than prepare medications. A 21st century curriculum emphasizes early patient experience in a variety of real-world settings.
Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Pharmacy! Thank you for your interest in our program. I am honored and humbled you are considering attending the College of Pharmacy. I know you have many choices in pharmacy education. I am confident you will find our program to be truly exceptional in many ways. We are proud to offer a three-year Doctor of Pharmacy program that is based on contemporary educational principles, including active and mastery learning and block teaching.
The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education and has been since January 2004. The program is accelerated so that the classroom portion of the curriculum can be completed in two years. Courses are taught using a block model, where students are able to focus on one content area at a time. Students report that this model allows for greater focus and, subsequently, increased retention of course information.
Students begin to participate in introductory pharmacy practice experiences right away at the start of the first year and continue to participate in these experiences during the entire two years of classroom learning. This allows for the immediate application of learned content to the care of the patient. The third and final year of the program is dedicated to advanced pharmacy practice experiences where students prepare for the responsibility of independent provision of patient care. Experiences are offered in a number of locations and practice settings, including elective international experiences. Graduates are very well prepared for the workforce.
Our graduates have accepted positions in nearly every imaginable area of pharmacy practice. Some graduates choose to pursue postgraduate education opportunities, and the College of Pharmacy’s placement rate in residencies meets or exceeds the national average. I am very proud of our graduates and what they have been able to accomplish using the education and training they obtained at Roseman. On behalf of the administration, faculty, students, and staff of Roseman University of Health Sciences, it is my pleasure to welcome you. The profession of pharmacy has been very rewarding to me, and I hope it will be rewarding to you. Please let me know if you have any questions or require additional assistance. I look forward to personally welcoming you to the Roseman family. In addition, Roseman University is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year. Join us and be a part of our future.

At Roseman University, we aim to provide excellence in everything we do, that’s why we created the Roseman University Six-Point Master Learning Model. Our focus on mastery means our graduates are prepared, engaged, and focused on developing a professional skill set through a mixture of classroom learning and real-world experience. We use preceptors and on-site education, so students understand the attributes needed to become a successful pharmaceutical practitioner.
College of Pharmacy Admissions
As a fully accredited institution, Roseman University seeks to provide the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to build a career as a pharmacist. We’ve designed our three-year Doctor of Pharmacy program to give students an edge when it comes to learning and professional opportunities. The quality of education students receive at Roseman University is reflected in our graduates NAPLEX (North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination) board exam pass rates!
Our learning model insists on mastery built with one core subject at a time. We use a block curriculum, which allows students to master a single topic before moving on to the next one while reinforcing learning year-round through these longitudinal blocks.
As part of the Roseman University Six-Point Mastery Learning Model®, we require each student to meet 90 percent or higher on subject assessments. This helps ensure graduates leave Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Pharmacy with more than just a pharmaceutical degree, but the needed preparation to start and build their career.
The College of Pharmacy believes that classroom preparation must meet real-world experience to foster the highest level of gained knowledge and skills. For this reason, we are always interested in adding the most outstanding licensed pharmacists to the group of knowledgeable, skilled, and student-focused preceptors.
By exposing students early to a variety of pharmacy settings, we find that students can follow a practical progression of learning, training, and assisting real patients. This allows for a quicker, more effective learning environment than classroom learning alone.
If you’re interested in becoming a preceptor with the Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Pharmacy, make sure to read through the Preceptor and Site Selection Criteria Manual, as well as our Experiential Policy Manual.
To further your education and build upon the foundation of knowledge, skills, and abilities established by your pharmaceutical degree, Roseman University offers a two-year, part-time pharmacy residency program. With no on-call or weekend service required, as well as 11 annual vacation days, the program is built to fit into the multi-faceted lives of our students and graduates.
The residency program provides further time to work on advanced research projects. This two year-program also enables new development of the skills needed to become a community-based practitioner able to work with a diverse patient population, as well as a leader in the world of pharmacy.
