The PharmD (Doctor of Pharmacy) is an entry-level professional degree for pharmacy, offered by ACPE accredited schools of pharmacy.. The PharmD degree is neither an undergraduate degree (e.g. BS, BA) nor a graduate degree (e.g. MS, MBA, PhD), but rather a professional degree for pharmacists similar to the Doctor of Medicine degree (MD) for physicians.

The PharmD — UNC School of Pharmacy (522 words)
The PharmD is neither an undergraduate degree (such as a BS or BA) nor a graduate degree (such as an MS, MBA, or PhD).
The UNC School of Pharmacy boasts one of the nation’s leading PharmD programs, combining rigorous coursework with applied learning opportunities from drug discovery to patient care. Practice experiences, coordinated through the Professional Experience Program ensures that each student develops the technical skills, communication skills, professional judgment, and clinical competency required of professional pharmacists.
While the School does not offer a combined PharmD/PhD program, PharmD students interested in pursuing a PhD may choose to expedite their training by choosing elective courses from the graduate curriculum and by using a research clerkship to explore potential topics for dissertation and research.
