Meet the South College School of Pharmacy Inaugural Class of 2014 – looking sharp in their Medelita lab coats at their recent White Coat Ceremony. The School of Pharmacy is the first doctorate degree program at South College, allowing graduates to apply for licensure immediately upon graduation from the school. South College offers an accelerated, three year PharmD curriculum unique to pharmacy education in Tennessee.
In January, South College received approval from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) to launch its Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree program. The approval awards the School of Pharmacy Precandidate Status, allowing the School to proceed with its inaugural class, shown above.
It’s an exciting time for South College and especially the class of 2014. In a traditional white coat ceremony in May, South College honored its first class of doctoral students in the School of Pharmacy transitioning into the profession of pharmacy. Thirty-seven South College Doctor of Pharmacy candidates received their beautiful Medelita white coats during the ceremony. We’re proud of these modern-day pioneers and honored to be a part of this new tradition.
