The course takes a total of five years (10 semesters) and is strongly oriented towards the natural sciences. In the first two years, the main scientific disciplines for pharmacy are taught. During the next two years, the main focus will be pharmaceutical specialty subjects. In the 9th A master thesis is written. After the 4. And 6. Semesters, 4 - week so - "Summer traineeship" (Famulatur), in the 5th. A 24 - week practical training course.
