Funding your Roseman University PharmD Degree

March 16, 2021

Roseman University of Health Sciences College of Pharmacy offers a three-year Doctor of Pharmacy program fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). Instructors teach using a block model that allows students to focus on one area of content at a time. Although the curriculum is offered in a way that helps students better focus and retain information, there is one aspect of student life that might distract even the very best student: the cost of higher education.
