Welcome from the South Carolina College of Pharmacy

This is an exciting time for pharmacy education. The demand for pharmaceutical services is expanding dramatically in community pharmacy, health-system pharmacy, managed health care, and the pharmaceutical industry. The South Carolina College of Pharmacy is committed to education excellence and expanded opportunities for our students. With nationally recognized faculty and staff, and the resources of a major academic medical center and a large comprehensive university, the South Carolina College of Pharmacy is prepared to provide our students state-of-the-art education with opportunities found nowhere else in the country. The need for pharmacists' expertise is evident from the many medication-related media stories focusing on new medications, adverse effects of medicines, and drug costs. The new Medicare drug benefit will greatly expand the opportunities for pharmacists to provide care. The positive opinion most people hold for their pharmacist has increased interest in the profession, and applications for pharmacy colleges nationwide have increased three-fold in the past few years.
