Marketable Skills for the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Program

National Licensure Examinations

The Fisch College of Pharmacy Pharm.D. program provides students with the knowledge needed to pass the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) licensing exam. The program also provides students with the knowledge needed to pass the Federal and Texas State Laws tested within the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE).  The program does not provide comprehensive coverage of state laws outside of Texas. Additionally, not all states/territories use the MPJE for their law examinations, including Arkansas, California, Idaho, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (https://nabp.pharmacy/) ­maintains a list of states accepting the NAPLEX and MPJE as licensing exams as well as contact information for each state board of pharmacy.
