Saint Michael's has a special agreement with the Doctor of Pharmacy program at the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, which has a campus nearby in Colchester. Through this agreement, the ACPHS assures interviews each year to qualified Saint Michael's College students. Saint Michael's students also have the option to major in Pre-Pharmacy, a dual-degree program with ACPHS.
Students interested in physical therapy may be particularly interested in an agreement between Saint Michael's College and the Doctor of Physical Therapy program at the University of Vermont.
