Pharmacy Doctorate, which is what you get when you attend pharmacy school to become a pharmacist in the United States. It is most commonly a 4 year professional school after having done an undergrad degree or necessary requirements first.

The difference between CPhT and RPh and PharmD?

CPhT - certified pharmacy technician. You have to pass the national Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam. As a pharm tech you work under a pharmacist and may dispense drugs, but not make the medical decisions a pharmacist might make. RPh - registered pharmacist. Much like a CPhT they have taken a national & state test to become certified/licensed. They must hope a pharmacy degree, which could be either a BS (if awarded before 2000) or a doctorate (PharmD). PharmD - as state above, a doctorate in pharmacy. This is now the standard degree given to pharmacists. You can have a PharmD but not be licensed to be a pharmacist (RPh).
