Online Degree Details
Patient Safety and Medication Risk Management
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 Patient Safety & Risk Management track is designated to provide students with the ability to develop a comprehensive clinical risk management and patient safety program.
Graduates of the program will have an understanding of general risk management techniques, standards of health care risk management administration and methods for integrating patient safety clinical risk management programs. Through a greater comprehension of federal, state and local laws graduates may provide regulatory compliance expertise to the creation and administration of a comprehensive risk management program.
