Pre-Pharmacy
I have two questions. At University of Iowa and Drake University, they have 2 years Pre-Pharmacy, 3 Years Pharmacy, and 1 year of rotation. To those who already completed the PharmD program, do i get this doctorate degree after 5 years or 6 years?
Another one, do students in the PharmD program have to write senior thesis or some stupid research project? Thank you.

PharmD is a 6 year program. Some schools have accelerated programs but its still 6 years I believe. PharmD is also the entery level degree for pharmacists now. I don't think there is a school out there that offers the traditional 5 year B.S of Pharmacy now.

In terms of writing a thesis, each school has different academic agenda's with a common knowledge base. I graduated from UIC in chicago and while they didn't have a thesis per se, they did make us write a 15-20 page paper on an assigned medication. You will also have numerous projects during your final year of clinical rotations which may include papers, projects, speeches, etc.
