At Samford University’s McWhorter School of Pharmacy, we offer you the chance to personalize your Pharm.D., aligning your education more closely with your career aspirations. Make your degree go further by combining your knowledge of pharmacy with an expertise in business, public health, nutrition, health informatics or law.

Having a sound understanding of business practices can provide compelling advantages to a person’s career. Our joint Doctor of Pharmacy and Master of Business Administration program is coordinated with Samford’s Brock School of Business and is designed to equip students with business skills that complement one’s pharmacy degree.
Pharm.D./Master of Public Health
While each pharmacist can provide personal care to individual patients, pharmacists also have the ability to care for entire populations.
