I am thinking of going to pharmacy school, even though I have already gotten my bachelor's degree. I am particularly intersted in accelerated/year-round Pharm.D. programs but have had difficulty finding them. Is anyone aware of a website where I could find some sort of a list of these programs, maybe with links to the schools' websites? Also, is anyone know anything about the difference between accelerated and four-year programs in terms of curriculum? Thanks!

Here's a list of all of the pharmacy programs currently recognized by aacp:
http://www.aacp.org/Docs/MainNavigation/ForStudentsApplicants/5401_PSARtab1.pdf
"Year-round" or "other" with a superscript of "e" means its an accelerated 3-year program. I think South University in Georgia is also 3 years, although it doesn't say so on the list, and Hawaii is missing from the list, but I think it's 3 years too.

You can find links to individual schools here: http://www.aacp.org/issi/membership/schools.asp?TrackID=&VID=6&CID=593&DID=4224


Also check out www.pharmcas.org to see if each institution participates in Pharmcas or not, and for deadlines. If you're thinking of applying for Fall '05, and since you already have a bachelor's degree, APPLY EARLY, starting in June '04!

The fact that you already have a B.S. will help your chances of being accepted to pharmacy school - which has recently become extremely competitive.
There is no difference between four year and three year curricula.
