The 6-year PharmD Program is an undergraduate-entry Master of Pharmacy (EU) / Doctor of Pharmacy (US) course leading high school graduates to a professional degree in Pharmacy, with great emphasis on clinical applications of pharmaceutical therapy.


It is our priority that our students graduate with the most up-to-date pharmaceutical knowledge. Contemporary pharmacy focuses on the patient and their needs in terms of pharmacotherapy so, beginning from the 4th year of studies, you will learn how to work as a member of a therapeutic team by working closely with doctors and patients as well as other specialists.

The program provides students with vast knowledge about drugs, their mechanisms of action, adverse effects and interactions. But it also focuses on the patient and provides information about the principles of individualized pharmacotherapy. With this knowledge, a pharmacy student can move on and learn about applied pharmacotherapy in various clinical conditions.

The program offers an opportunity to share experiences with exchange students from the US who undergo training at our University. Once you become a PUMS student you will also have a chance to take some of the classes abroad, e.g. in the United States through our exchange program with University of Kentucky.

The PUMS PharmD curriculum is designed to meet the standards and guidelines for professional programs in pharmacy defined by the US Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). It also adheres to the Directive 2005/36/EC of the European Parliament and to the requirements of the Council on the Recognition of Professional Qualifications.

We are the best pharmacy faculty in Poland so we feel obliged to provide you with modern education based on the experience of working in various therapeutic teams. Our University owns 6 clinical hospitals, a pharmacy and a hospice where students can learn their profession.
