BS-PharmD: Drexel-USciences PharmD Option


Drexel’s undergraduate Health Sciences Department and University of the Sciences’s PharmD Program have partnered to offer a BS/PharmD sequential degree option to students enrolled in the Health Sciences program.

This partnership between USciences and Drexel creates a clear and seamless pathway for qualified Drexel students to transfer to the USciences Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program after completing their BS degree at Drexel.

The program will admit up to 5 eligible Drexel Health Science students per academic year.

In the BS/PharmD Option, students first complete a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Health Sciences at Drexel University, then enroll into the 4-year Doctor of Pharmacy ( PharmD) program at University of the Sciences. Upon completion of USciences PharmD program, students will sit for the North American pharmacist Licensure Examination ( NAPLEX) to become a Registered Pharmacist..

    You'll benefit from:

    • A clear pathway to complete your PharmD degree
    • Advising and application assistance throughout the transfer process
    • Campus visit opportunities


    Beginning Fall 2020, the University of the Sciences PharmD program will reserve five ( 5) seats in the PharmD program for eligible Drexel Health Sciences students. If more than 5 eligible students apply, USciences will enroll the top 5 candidates and consider other applicants with the total USciences PharmD applicant pool.
