Return to School of Pharmacy Return to: School of Pharmacy

The purpose of the Area of Concentration in Research (ARCO-RES) in the University of Pittsburgh School of Pharmacy Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program is to provide students exposure to research fundamentals, cultivate an appreciation for clinical and translational research, and to help position students as highly competitive candidates for formal post-PharmD research education and training.

ARCO-RES Academic Requirements

The ARCO-RES consists of six (6) credits of approved elective classroom-based courses, four 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-RES 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.
