If God has called upon you to help deliver the healthcare needs of those in your community, you owe it to yourself to answer. That’s exactly what students in the Doctor of Pharmacy program discover every year when they join our respected, collaborative community in the Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy.
PBA’s Doctor of Pharmacy program prepares graduates to sit for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX), a nationwide examination for the licensing of pharmacists in the United States. Passing this exam is required for pharmacist licensure in the United States. Additionally, PBA’s Doctor of Pharmacy program prepares graduates to sit for the Florida Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE), a statewide examination that is required for the licensing of pharmacists in the state of Florida. Licensure and certification varies from state to state, and graduates should be prepared to abide by additional requirements when seeking licensure or certification in a state other than Florida.
In order to succeed in today’s dynamic healthcare arena, it takes individuals who want to serve at a higher level and deeply impact the lives of patients. That’s what our program is all about. You’ll learn from Christian faculty who are experts in their fields, and alongside fellow students who share your values, amplify your skills and inspire you to follow your passions.

“PBA’s pharmacy program 4th year provides opportunities to work in a variety of pharmacy-based practice sites. During my time at those sites, I was fortunate enough to work on a project for the hospital where I analyzed how three medications were being utilized in the emergency room and compared that utilization to the cost of each medication. This experience led me to find a career within a similar field of work.” Emily Rose Reonegro, PharmD
