The Pharmaceutical Sciences Ph.D. program is also part of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences (GPiBS) umbrella program.

These graduate programs do not prepare students for practice as a registered pharmacist, so applicants who are interested in a pharmacy career should apply to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program.
