Breaking news from Dr. Charlie Sands, the dean of the McWhorter School of Pharmacy: 

 “At the American College of Clinical Pharmacy Annual Meeting in Hollywood, Florida, our senior student team, comprised of Catherine Needham, Amy McCaffrey, and Mark Rosenberg, placed third out of 90 school of pharmacy teams in the competition entitled ‘Clinical Pharmacy Challenge.’ The teams competed in a ‘quiz bowl’ format, answering patient case/drug-related problem questions.”

 The world is better because our students are prepared for competence in their disciplines.
