Through a partnership between University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) and the Idaho State University (ISU) College of Pharmacy, students may earn their Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) in Alaska. During the first three years of the program, Alaska's Doctor of Pharmacy students follow the traditional model of scheduled classes on UAA campus, with state-of-the-art audiovisual technology used to deliver live instruction across three delivery sites:  Pocatello and Meridian, Idaho, and Anchorage, Alaska. The fourth year of the program consists of seven six-week blocks of clinical clerkship experiences called Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE). The entire four-year program, including clerkships, is completed in Alaska.


Alaska residents are given preference in applying for admission to the Anchorage site. Applicants must meet common requirements established by the ISU College of Pharmacy, including prerequisites in biology, chemistry, physics and social sciences. Detailed eligibility information is available on the ISU College of Pharmacy website.


Applications are submitted through PharmCAS, a national Pharmacy College Application Service. All applications received by ISU from Alaskan residents will be considered for the UAA/ISU program in Anchorage, Alaska. Complete application information including details about the selection process can be found on the ISU website.


Accreditation information may be found at Idaho State University College of Pharmacy.
