Responding to the rising need for pharmacists nationally, and particularly in the South, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) – Georgia established a four–year Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) professional degree program in 2010.
Located in suburban Atlanta, GA and supported by PCOM’s century-old tradition of training osteopathic physicians and other health practitioners, the School of Pharmacy provides a rigorous, comprehensive curriculum delivered by accomplished educators, practitioners, and pharmaceutical scientists.
The SOP is a student-centered program and our faculty is committed to providing all of the necessary resources to support students both academically and personally. PCOM students will have the opportunity to customize their pharmacy learning experience by pursuing concentrations in one of three different pharmacy practice areas during the third year of the program. Concentrations allow students to tailor their elective experiences to their own unique interests by developing a specialized range of expertise and skill and prepare them for rewarding careers in ambulatory, acute care or managed care practice.
