What You’ll Learn
At South College, our Doctor of Pharmacy program is designed to optimize your time spent in the classroom and lab, allowing you to complete your PharmD in 3 years instead of the traditional 4—the only accelerated Doctor of Pharmacy program in Tennessee.
In this program, you’ll benefit from the instruction of experienced and passionate nationally-acclaimed faculty as you gain new skills and get hands-on experience. You’ll build on your foundational scientific knowledge in pharmaceutical studies, applying what you’ve learned to doctorate-level projects in our state-of-the-art laboratories and during clinical rotations overseen by professional Knoxville pharmacists.
High school students who are motivated to become qualified pharmacists can take advantage of the South College Pharmacy Early Assurance Readiness Program, or SPEAR. During the course of this 5 year program, committed students earn their Associate of Science in Health Science (PrePharmacy), Bachelor of Science in Pharmaceutical Science, and Doctor of Pharmacy.
