Doctor of Pharmacy - Geriatrics & Palliative Care ARCO

Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The purpose of the Area of Concentration in Geriatrics and Palliative Care (ARCO-GPC) is to allow students to pursue an area of emphasis with geriatrics and palliative care consistent with their professional interests during their Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) education.  The ARCO-GPC is intended to give students an in-depth exposure to geriatrics and palliative care pharmacy practice.

ARCO-GPC Academic Requirements

The ARCO-GPC consists of six (6) credits of approved elective classroom-based courses, two Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs), and an approved project conducted under the guidance of an advisor. A minimum of 16 credits of coursework and rotations in the ARCO-GPC are required. It does not require the student to take additional credits, but rather is a way for students to concentrate their classroom and experiential learning experiences in a focused way to meet the intent of the area of concentration.
