There are many choices in pharmacy education. But not all of them offer the same opportunities. Make sure your final choice is one that will prepare you to be the pharmacist you truly want to be.
Lipscomb University has a storied tradition in forging students to be leaders in multiple careers and, most importantly, a proven background in preparing students for a life of service. The College of Pharmacy shares that same vision and commitment as it expands that legacy and tradition of excellence to the field of pharmacy education.
In just a few short years our accredited pharmacy program, the first in Middle Tennessee, is already viewed as one of the best in the South. And we have proven our ability to produce day-one-ready professionals who can apply the best clinical skills for better patient care in a variety of settings. All that means that those who know are definitely taking notice.
Our Doctor of Pharmacy degree is a demanding, full-time, four-year course of study that adheres to the highest professional standards, while providing an educational foundation for a career in one of the fastest-growing industries in the country. In fact, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of pharmacists is expected to increase by 25 percent from 2013 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations.
At first glance, one might say we're combining excellent career preparation with a continuing need. But that's just the beginning of how our pharmacy program truly stands apart.
