M.S. Graduate Admissions

M.S. in Pharmacy Leadership and Administration

Admissions Process - UH Application Deadline: Jan. 5, 2018*

*Please note that deadline quoted applies to the university portion of the application. Please check with each individual hospital for PhORCAS deadlines.

The Houston Program in Pharmacy Leadership and Administration includes separate applications for each residency site (through PhorCAS) and the M.S. degree (through UH). For all applicants, and especially for applicants from outside of the Houston area, we provide a coordinated interview schedule in order to optimize candidates' time and learn more about the Houston Program, the Texas Medical Center, and the city of Houston. A summary and detailed procedures for the admissions process are provided below.

Details of the Application Process

Step 1: Apply for residency program

Instructions

Step 2: Apply for the M.S. Program through the University of Houston

Instructions

Complete the University of Houston Graduate School Application 

  • Fill in all Fields (Note: Institution Name is "University of Houston - Main Campus")
  • A personal statement (essay) is required in the Graduate school application; this can be a letter of intent addressed to Divya Varkey focusing on your interest in The Houston Program.

Step 3: Coordinated interview process

The goal of our program is to provide a seemless partnership between the UH graduate program and residency sites. To accomplish this goal, we have a coordinated interview process. Once you have submitted your application, you will be sent an email to identify a preferred interview week. Once we have established your interview week, we will coordinate with all the residency sites for which you have been granted an interview.

Note: Each residency site requires a minimum of a one-half day interview, so be prepared to spend several days in Houston if applying for multiple programs. We can offer assistance in hotel recommendations and directions from area airports, if needed.

Step 4:  Submit ranking list to ASHP

Once match results are published, UH and the residency sites will coordinate to admit matched applicants into the UH Graduate School.
