Transcript Medicinal Occupation Martha Isabel Rocha The University of Houston Undergraduate Council voted unanimously for a proposal that would eliminate the baccalaureate degree in pharmacy by 1999, if approved by the university and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The coordinating board, which accredits the UH pharmacy college, will not accredit baccalaureate pharmacy programs after 2000, said Thomas Lemke, associate dean of the College of Pharmacy. Currently, students in the program have the option of working towards a Bachelor of Science or a doctorate in pharmacy. The B.S. in pharmacy is a five-year degree that requires two years of pre-pharmacy and three years in an internship- type program referred to as rotation, which gives students experience in hospital or pharmacy degrees creates real contusion settings. At the completion of the baccalaureate degree, students can take an exam to become registered pharmacists in Texas. The doctorate, also known as a Pharm-D degree, takes longer to complete but gives students more than twice the job experience before graduation while still allowing students to take the certification exam. "What we're moving towards is a six-year degree (program), two years of pre-pharmacy (and) four years in the professional program," Lemke said. "But one graduates with a doctorate of pharmacy degree rather than the baccalaureate Things are changing in pharmacy and having two rees creates real confusion for students who don't know which one they should choose," Thomas Lemke degree. "Things are changing in pharmacy and having two degrees creates real confusion for students who don't know which one they should choose," Lemke said. For example, many prescriptions are filled electronically with robotics, eliminating the need for the pharmacist. However, Lemke said there is still a need for pharmacists to interact with patients. Although the program will take students an extra year to graduate and their post- graduation salaries may not see much change, Lemke said the Pharm-D degree will give students unlimited growth in their careers due to increased opportunities. As for the students already enrolled in the pharmacy program, there wasn't much interest in continuing the B.S. degree. Continued to pg. 176 Phuong Nguyen prepares a needle to inject into a patient.
