Pharmacology-Toxicology BS Program Electives – Fall

For students who enter the program in Fall 2014 or beyond

Pharmacology-Toxicology students must complete five (5) credits of “electives in the major” beyond the required core curriculum; it is part of the formal Bachelor of Science degree requirements.  The following list of School of Pharmacy and non-School of Pharmacy courses has been approved as acceptable electives in the major.  Additionally, approved research (699) credits BEYOND the required PharmTox core curriculum 2 credit 699 may be counted towards meeting this Pharm-Tox Electives in the major graduation requirement.  Professor Jeff Johnson is the contact person for such approvals throughout your Pharm-Tox student career.

Students may make the Pharm-Tox program aware of new courses that they wish to be considered for additions to this approved list.  At a minimum, the course must be on the “intermediate” or “advanced” level and be pertinent to the biomedical sciences.  Such requests should be sent to Ken Niemeyer at kdniemeyer@pharmacy.wisc.edu
