The College of Health Sciences (CHS) at California Northstate University (CNU) offers high school applicants the Pre-Pharm to Doctor of Pharmacy(Pre-Pharm to PharmD) Combined Programs to enter the profession of pharmacy. The Pre-Pharm to PharmD Combined Programs allow first-time freshmen to complete their pre-pharmacy coursework and PharmD degree in an accelerated time frame if they meet specific criteria.

Students accepted to the Pre-Pharm to PharmD Combined Programs begin their program of study in the undergraduate program of CHS. By working closely with CHS pre-health advisors, students are able to complete all the required criteria and academic course prerequisites. Each year, students in the Pre-Pharm to PharmD Combined Programs will also be required to participate in at least one campus activity of the College of Pharmacy (COP). The COP’s campus activity program educates pre-pharmacy students of their future profession through community health service opportunities, specialty career exploration workshops, lab experiences, and special professional education sessions. The Pre-Pharm to PharmD Combined Programs offer priority acceptance to COP for students who meet all the COP admission criteria after their second or third year of study in the undergraduate college. In addition, students have the opportunity to complete the PharmD degree in an accelerated time frame--six to seven years instead of the traditional eight years.
