Master of Science in Pharmacy - Pharmaceutical Outcomes & Policy (Applied Pharmacoeconomics)

Description:

The UF College of Pharmacy offers an online, 30-credit, non-thesis Master’s degree in non-dispensing areas of pharmacy. Designed for working professionals, the seven-week class format allows students to focus on one subject at a time before moving on to the next and can be competed in as little as two years of part time study. Pharm.D. / R.Ph. background is not required.

Graduates of this program are conferred the same degree as residential students: Master of Science in Pharmacy with concentration in Pharmaceutical Outcomes & Policy. Within that concentration, students select a specialty track. A three-year UF MS Pharmacy / Stetson University MBA option is also available.

The Applied Pharmcoeconomics track is designed to provide students with the ability to critique, apply and conduct applied pharmacoeconomic research to improve clinical decision making.

Students learn how to apply economic principles to describe and understand the use of medications and pharmaceutical services. Using these principles, graduates of the program may participate in a team effort to design and evaluate interventions to improve clinical, economic and humanistic outcomes within a health system.
