A richer experience.

Studying pharmacy in the health care capital makes a difference.   According to the Nashville Chamber of Commerce half of the US population lives within 650 miles of our city.  Health care is the region's biggest industry with more than 250 diverse health companies headquartered in Nashville.  As one of the nation's fastest-growing cities, one in every eight people works in the health care industry contributing $38.8 billion in economic impact annually.  Simply put, we have choices here that ensure your pharmacy practice experiences are more diverse, of higher quality and cover a large expanse of the industry.

We are the first college of pharmacy in the U.S. to provide student pharmacists a competitive edge in their education through cloud-based access to IBM Watson Analytics. With this tool, you will be able to generate or import data allowing you to explore and discover answers and insights — without relying on outside data scientists or IT. Through this partnership, we are helping equip our students with the skills to excel in an evolving health care marketplace.
