Thank you for your interest in the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy! Pharmacy is a rewarding career that offers many different practice options in a variety of settings, ranging from the traditional community pharmacy setting, to advanced clinical practice in large hospitals, to pharmaceutical research and drug discovery. We believe that opportunities in the field will continue to expand as our population ages and as more sophisticated drug therapies are developed.
I encourage you to look closely at all the UT College of Pharmacy has to offer as you compare pharmacy programs. As an alumnus of the UT College of Pharmacy and a faculty member since 1970, I take great pride in the accomplishments of our students, faculty and alumni. The UT College of Pharmacy is a nationally-recognized leader in pharmacy education and research with a tradition of excellence in all our educational, practice and research programs. We are excited about the positive response to our second campus in Knoxville, which opened in 2007, and where students may spend the final three years of the Doctor of Pharmacy program. The College has also established clinical education centers in Nashville, Chattanooga, and Kingsport, as well as clinical experiential learning sites in over half the counties in Tennessee.
For the past 25 years, I have been responsible for student affairs and have served as chair of the admissions committee. I continue to be impressed with the increasing quality of our student pharmacists. The College promotes a family atmosphere that supports students in their professional development and education. All our student organizations have received national recognition and awards for excellence for their efforts in community service and leadership.
I encourage you to talk with both current students and alumni about the exceptional quality of our faculty and our programs. I invite you to talk with College faculty and staff about any questions you may have. If you are interested in a college of pharmacy with a national reputation and a focus on promoting excellence in pharmacy education, practice, research, and outreach, I encourage you to apply to the University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy!
