Cooperative Pharmacy Program Group

To describe a little about the CPP, UTRGV in cooperation with the UT Austin COP offers a pre-pharmacy + 2 + 2 curriculum leading to the "Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD)" degree. The PharmD degree is the sole entry-level degree offered in the Unites States for those interested in becoming a licensed pharmacist.  The PharmD is a professional doctorate designed to prepare pharmacists to provide patient-oriented care in contemporary health care environments.

The UTRGV CPP was developed to encourage students from the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo Regions to pursue pharmacy as a professional career.  The CPP offers students the opportunity to complete the pre-pharmacy and part of the pharmacy curriculum at UTRGV and the surrounding Rio Grande Valley.
