Graduate Education

The University of Maryland School of Pharmacy offers two highly competitive research-based graduate programs.

Pharmaceutical Health Services Research Graduate Program:

The widespread use of medications in society has created a demand for individuals skilled in the evaluation of pharmaceutical services and interventions. The Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (PHSR) graduate program provides graduates with the theory, practical experience, and decision-making skills they need to become expert researchers and address a wide range of pharmacy-related problems.

Pharmaceutical Sciences Graduate Program:

The Pharmaceutical Sciences (PSC) graduate program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to direct the discovery of novel biological pathways in human disease and the development and delivery of medications for safe and effective therapy. After completing one of four available research tracks, graduates are prepared to become successful scientists and begin exciting careers in academia, federal agencies, or the pharmaceutical industry.
