About the Program

If you want to pursue an advanced pharmacy practice career, including health policy development, emergency response, public health leadership, or global health policy, our MPH/PharmD program can give you the education and training you need for success. We can teach you about the epidemiology of disease, health behavior, the impact of environmental and occupational factors on patient health, disease progression, management of disease states, drug and insurance policy issues, and patient access to drug therapy, as well as pharmaceutical social, legal, and ethical issues.

To be admitted the MPH/PharmD program, which is offered in conjunction with the Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy, you must first be accepted to the Harrison School of Pharmacy. Your MPH will provide you with a foundation in public health that’s centered around an evidence-based public health model. The MPH will share up to 12 credit hours of the PharmD program so you can complete your degree in a timely manner. In addition, you can complete the MPH program online.
