Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy
When you start the doctor of pharmacy program at UT Tyler, you will be expected to have a certain amount of foundational knowledge and skills in order to do well in the classroom and at your experiential sites.
While some review of fundamental topics occurs in the pharmacy curriculum, retaining what you learned in mathematics, life sciences and humanities is important to your success and goes a long way in helping you from falling behind as a pharmacy student.
The current list of prerequisite courses is below. The number of semester credit hours (SCH) is the minimum number of hours to meet the prerequisite requirement. If you have questions about the equivalency of specific courses from your institution, please contact us so we can help you.
