School Overview

School Info

The College of Pharmacy prepares the professional and graduate pharmacy students of today to be the pharmacy practitioners and pharmaceutical sciences researchers of tomorrow.

Curriculum

Students may apply to the four-year professional (Pharm.D.) program after approximately three years of pre-pharmacy study. An exclusive feature of the OSU pharmacy program is that all students without a prior degree also earn a Bachelors degree in general science after the second professional year.

Facilities

Students spend the first two years on the Corvallis Campus and the third year at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. The fourth year is spent gaining supervised, on-the-job experience in a variety of pharmacy practice locations throughout the northwest.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
