The Pharmaceutical Sciences Specialty Track enables UNE Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students to explore the broad field of pharmaceutical sciences beyond the required Pharm.D. curriculum. The track is offered by the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Administration to enrolled students at no additional cost. As a student in the track, you pursue topics such as biochemistry, biopharmaceutics, computational chemistry, immunology, medicinal chemistry, pharmacogenomics, pharmacokinetics, pathophysiology, and pharmacology through research or teaching experiences under faculty guidance. You have access to the modern teaching and research resources within the UNE School of Pharmacy, which include analytical, genomic, proteomic, and simulation technologies and platforms.

Pharm.D. students are eligible to earn a certificate that designates their completion of the Pharmaceutical Sciences Specialty Track at the beginning of their P4 year provided they meet the following requirements:

  1. Successful completion of two elective courses offered by the department, and
  2. A letter of support from a department faculty member that is reviewed and approved by the department chair.

Examples of letters of support that would be deemed approvable include, but are not limited to:

  • A detailed description of a research project outside the scope of the two elective courses and under the guidance of department faculty;
  • A detailed description of substantial contributions to provide supplemental instruction teaching for a core course taught by department faculty.

Examples of letters of support that would *not* be deemed approvable include descriptions of:

  • A research project done within the scope of the two electives (including independent study);
  • Teaching contributions in the role of a peer tutor.
