Omaha PharmD Pathway

Entry-level PharmD Program – Omaha Pathway 

Since 1905, the pharmacy program has allowed students to earn their degree with innovative study in a full-time, traditional campus setting.  

Our innovative PharmD program reflects changes in pharmacy practice regarding medication therapy management and patient-centered care. You’ll expand your knowledge using the latest pharmaceutical technology in our modern pharmacy skills labs in Omaha. 

Discover Experiential Learning

Students can complete pharmacy practice learning activities within real-world pharmacy settings as part of the curriculum. Activities typically begin as an introduction to pharmacy practice during the first three years (IPPEs) and progress to higher levels of practice as students complete advanced experiences (APPEs) during the fourth year.

Interprofessional Education and Practice

At Creighton, you’ll work with other health sciences students to prepare you for a practice that reflects the real world. 

Partnerships with regional and national providers offer you experiential learning opportunities in a variety of professional settings, including community pharmacy, acute pharmaceutical care, in-patient hospital, outpatient clinic and drug information.  

In addition, over 30 elective/specialty clinical rotations let you pursue interests in such areas as pediatrics, psychiatry, oncology and more. You may also choose a clinical experience in the Dominican Republic.

Improving Patient Care Through Innovative Centers

Center for Medication Therapy Management  

The School of Pharmacy and Health Professions was the first school to partner with AdhereHealth to establish a remote site for student pharmacists and first-year residents to provide medication therapy management services. At this center, students develop an array of skills, including comprehensive medication review, patient education, written and verbal communication skills and assessment and documentation of services and therapy.  

Center for Drug Information and Evidence-Based Practice  

The center offers a wide range of unbiased, timely information consultations to pharmacists nationwide. These consultations allow pharmacists to make informed decisions about dosing, drug interactions, adverse drug reactions, therapeutic reviews and recommendations.


Making a Difference Through Service

At Creighton, we produce pharmacists who are ready to make an impact in their profession, in the lives of their patients and in the communities they serve.  

Our pharmacy students often work with community partners to provide information about immunization and vaccinations to communities in need. 

Service opportunities include:  

  • Shoo the Flu Clinic  
  • One World Clinic 
  • Women’s Night Health Fair 
  • Indigenous Peoples Health Fair 
  • Youth Emergency Services
