Pharmacy Schools in US – Their number grew by 48 in 14 years

Pharmacy programs usually take six years — two years of undergraduate work at a university or community college and four years of professional training — at the end of which most students earn a doctorate of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree.

The average pharmacy school student borrows $130,000, according to a 2013 survey of graduates by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy.

Yue Dong, a second-year student at UNC’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy, said she became interested in a pharmacy career after volunteering in a hospital and working part-time at a local pharmacy.

Dong said she is not concerned about the job market when she graduates and, as an in-state student, estimated she will graduate with only about $20,000 in debt.

“There’s a lot of talk about it becoming the new law school, but coming from UNC I’m not worried about that at all,” she said.
