The University of Charleston School of Pharmacy offers student pharmacists a technology-infused, dynamic, and rigorous curriculum that prepares graduates to practice in today’s rapidly changing health care environment. Our students are trained to know about the body, medications, and what happens when medications enter both a healthy and diseased body. From a state of the art facility, to an in-house patient care clinic, the UCSOP makes it possible for students to participate in delivering pharmacy services to real patient’s just steps away from their academic classroom and labs. From the beginning, we envisioned a different kind of school of pharmacy — one where the role of pharmacy was shaped by community-focused students and caring, hands-on faculty in an intimate environment.
The UCSOP uses a holistic admissions process to identify talented, qualified, and committed individuals through a competitive admissions process. Each applicant’s academic background and achievement, test scores, letters of recommendation, and more are reviewed.
