The Pre-pharmacy Program is a comprehensive preparatory program of study toward admittance into the College of Pharmacy at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Completion of the Pre-Pharmacy Course Curriculum or equivalent is required for admission into the professional curriculum leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.). These requirements may be completed in two years of intensive study, after which successful applicants to the Pharm.D. program continue their studies for an additional four years, for a minimum of six years of college. The coursework is structurally aligned with the curriculum requirements toward a BA or BS degree in Biology or Chemistry at UHH. Admission into and completion of the Pre-pharmacy program does not guarantee admission into the Doctor of Pharmacy Program at the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
