  • Welcome Back, Future Pharmacists!

    September 8, 2021

    Classes have officially started for our students here at Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy. P1s, P2s, and P3s are already visiting their IPPE sites in and around Nashville, and our P4 students are serving their APPE sites to the best of their abilities. A few weeks ago, campus was essentially a wasteland. Now, we have regular visitors in our office! We are so happy to have our students here so we can start working toward some sense of normalcy. Masks are still mandated indoors for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals, but campus is coming alive again.

    July 28, 2021

               In just a few weeks, the Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy will welcome back its faculty, student body, and the newly-minted class of 2025. Over the summer, the A.M. Burton Health Sciences Center gets pretty quiet. We miss our students! Since the majority of our interview days over the last year were held virtually, several students from the incoming class will be visiting our campus and Nashville for the very first time! In this blog, I’ll do my best to give you an overview of life in Music City: what to do, where to eat, and a few pieces of advice.

  • A Brand New Vaccine? I Have a Few Questions.

    April 12, 2021

    Opinions, opinions. 

               There are a lot of different opinions out there about the COVID-19 vaccine. Some are racing to their local pharmacies, begging to receive the first dose of one of the three options. Others are a little more skeptical, questioning the efficacy of a vaccine that was developed so quickly. As I write this, over 167 million vaccines have been administered in the U.S. Here at the college of pharmacy, I am surrounded by professionals in the field of medicine.

    Interviewing at Lipscomb

We want to meet the real you, not just your accomplishments or grades.
