In addition to entering the workforce earlier, students who transition directly from community college to KGI’s PharmD program will also have fewer years of college expenses.
Your ambition may be to work in a hospital, working directly with patients who need your help. You may imagine yourself using science to fight for the health of our communities through public initiatives or regulatory work. Others may see you at a bench in a research lab or at a desk in a corner office, helping to discover new drugs and bring them to patients in need.
A pharmacy degree can carry you to any of these places. And yet, you may not always think that a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) is in your reach. KGI is partnering with community colleges to make these dreams more accessible. By building a clear path for students and working together, we can help you go from high school to pharmacy careers in as little as six years in our accelerated pathway.
