McWhorter School of Pharmacy has equipped those called to our profession for over 95 years. Our mission is to prepare students in a nurturing, Christian environment to be exemplary pharmacists and improve health worldwide. This approach means our faith calls us to a greater purpose as educators and professionals, and it's central to what we do and what makes us different.
The school continues to build on its rich and storied history. The faculty have developed the country’s most contemporary Practice and Team Ready curriculum. This curriculum offers a practical, hands-on approach where we prepare graduates for wherever they feel called to serve. Our program also includes a variety of ways for students to personalize their training, including joint degrees, international opportunities, student research and pharmacy practice experiences. Along the way, students earn a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy Studies and complete certificate programs related to Medication Therapy Management and Immunization Delivery. The success of our graduates on licensure examinations and in pharmacy residency placements is a testament to our academic excellence and our students, faculty and staff. Yet, what makes our students different is how they give back and serve others.
Pharmacy remains one of the most important professions in today's evolving healthcare system. McWhorter School of Pharmacy is fortunate to be part of the College of Health Sciences. This connection promotes interprofessional education, and our students train alongside learners from the Moffett & Sanders School of Nursing, the School of Public Health and the School of Health Professions. These activities frequently occur in our Experiential Learning and Simulation Center, accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. At the intersection of these schools is the Office for Faith and Health, which provides a critical link between our academic programs and the communities we serve. These experiences distinctively prepare our graduates to work alongside other healthcare professionals combining pharmacy and faith to improve health.
I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our innovative approach to pharmacy education. We are here to answer any questions you may have about the program. I encourage you to experience McWhorter School of Pharmacy for yourself and sign up for one of our open house events or schedule a personal visit.
