First steps towards a PharmD/PhD degree in collaboration with Concordia University School of Pharmacy

An agreement has been reached with Concordia University that will allow PharmD students to continue their education at UWM and receive an additional PhD degree. UWM offers all of the prerequisite coursework necessary for students to apply to professional pharmacy schools such as Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin. We have now come full circle and are offering students at Concordia a focus on pharmaceutical research offered by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. Dr. Stafford, director of the Milwaukee Institute for Drug Discovery, spearheaded this exiting collaboration that will bring our institutions closer together and broadens the educational opportunities for students in the area of Drug Discovery and Development.
