Abstract:
Specific Aims: Our goal was to identify the extent and type of research requirements in Doctorate of Pharmacy programs in the United States and Puerto Rico. Regular and associate institutional school members of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) were eligible to complete this study. Methods: Online questionnaires were distributed through email in three waves. Questions consisted of demographic questions, and questions about the type and extent of research requirements each school offers. Main Results: Some type of research project was required in seven schools (25.9%) during the course of their PharmD curriculum. Of the 27 schools completing the questionnaire, 55% indicated they required research methods, 78% required statistics, and 100% required drug information/literature evaluation courses during their PharmD curriculum. Conclusion: The majority of colleges provide research-related coursework for their students in PharmD programs. Roughly a quarter of schools require some form of research project be completed prior to graduation, with a large portion offering some form of research experience or elective with research opportunities.
