We offer the best route to earn a PharmD and PhD.

PharmD and PhD: CUW Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and PhD Chemical/Pharmacological Research Agreement with UW-Milwaukee

The CUW School of Pharmacy and the UWM School of Letters and Sciences Department of Chemistry cooperate to facilitate individual student opportunity to work toward both a PharmD and PhD. Students in this rigorous program work toward their PharmD at Concordia and also take courses at UWM. The advantage is:

  1. Students get a taste of what chemical/pharmacological research is like before committing to a doctoral program
  2. Students earn credit towards their PhD degree while still a student at Concordia. That makes their time as a PhD student shorter.

Interested students are those who wish to pursue a research career after getting their PharmD degree. It is a challenging double program, but is a potent combination for the high achiever.
