MTM Master's Degree Program

A Master of Science in Pharmacy with a concentration in Medication Therapy Management can help students pursue new careers in pharmacy benefits management organizations, hospitals, surgery and cancer centers, and home health agencies. Students are also taught the business aspects of MTM, so they can someday open their own MTM practice or expand their current services.

As more people are covered by insurance, and as insurance companies are pressured to reduce healthcare costs while improving patient outcomes, companies and medical providers are turning to MTM.

This 33-credit degree can be completed in as little as five semesters. The curriculum includes coursework in:

  • Conducting patient interviews
  • Communication techniques between patients and providers
  • Medication-related action plan design
  • Business plan development
  • Documenting and billing MTM services

Enrolling as a non-degree seeking student in the University of Florida's Online Medication Therapy Management graduate program allows students to experience courses without the commitment of a five-semester degree.
