Innovative Three-Year Pharmacy Program

Innovative 3-Year PharmD Program


The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) Pharmacy School is one of the few pharmacy schools in the country, and the only institution in Wisconsin, offering a three-year doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) degree in an exceptionally supportive, approachable and innovative learning environment. The MCW Pharmacy School is the only three-year PharmD program in the Midwest that is located on an academic medical center such as the Milwaukee Regional Medical Complex, providing access to world-renowned resources at Froedtert Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin for students and faculty alike.

As an MCW PharmD student, your experience will balance more than a century of rich healthcare education traditions with cutting-edge educational technologies and team-based learning models in a 21st century pharmacy school curriculum preparing you to meet the future head on. Additionally, our high caliber faculty bring their dedication to improving the health and quality of life of the patients and communities they serve.

The approach to a three-year curriculum is an innovative initiative at MCW. Similar to the MCW Pharmacy School, the MCW-Central Wisconsin and MCW-Green Bay campuses feature a three-year curriculum, a calendar efficient schedule allowing students to complete their medical degree (MD) in one community in three years. The three-year curriculum is achieved by reducing the length of traditional school breaks and increasing the efficiency of academic delivery.  Thus, it allows students to graduate sooner and begin practicing one year earlier. 

Please wait while we gather your results.

The Impact of Your Giving

From their first days on campus, MCW students benefit from an educational program that provides early clinical experiences and access to the laboratories of federally funded researchers. The faculty physicians within our Medical School lead a Discovery Curriculum that gives students the deep understanding of human biology and patient care they need to emerge as talented, compassionate doctors ready to treat patients and families. Our nationally recognized Graduate School faculty fuels that passion and creativity in the next generation of health researchers, focused on developing effective treatments to fight devastating diseases and improving public health. Additionally, our Pharmacy School faculty provides specialty tracks to train future pharmacists in fields of critical need, including pharmacogenomics, cancer, psychiatry and other specialties.
