Master of Science in Clinical Psychopharmacology
The graduate curriculum is 24 months in length and is divided into two academic years, including coursework and supervised clinical experiences. Generally, each class of students will progress through the curriculum as a cohort, although a non-traditional, part-time route is also available. If a non-traditional route is desired, students should contact the program-training director to determine an appropriate schedule to complete requirements, keeping in mind prerequisites and co-requisites.
The didactic curriculum is comprised of foundational courses in pharmacology and physical assessment in the first year, followed by integrated psychopharmacotherapeutic courses in the second year. Topics in law, research and writing, and practice management are also included. Supervised clinical experiences will be required in both years of the curriculum to ensure adequate and appropriately timed patient care activities and supervised prescribing of psychotropic medications. Some courses may have laboratory hour requirements.
A complete list of professional/technical standards covering essential capacities for observation, communication, sensory and motor function, behavioral and social attributes, and other student performance requirements is available from the program.
