DETAILED INFORMATION

The South University School of Pharmacy in Savannah, Georgia, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), is one of the few institutions nationwide to offer an innovative and accelerated program of study that allows students to obtain the Doctor of Pharmacy degree in three calendar years. This three-year program allows students to launch their careers earlier than students attending a traditional four-year program. Additionally, during their last year, students participate in clinical rotations. This affords students an opportunity to develop a deeper knowledge of the specific needs and requirements of pharmacy practice.
The School of Pharmacy program is delivered over 12 quarters of study that can be characterized by three distinct areas of focus. The first provides the scientific foundation of the practice of pharmacy with coursework focusing on the basic, biological and pharmaceutical sciences with introductory clinical aspects. The second area of focus begins when student pharmacists are exposed to the profession in two Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences; one in a Community practice setting and a second in an Institutional Practice Setting. The curriculum at this stage provides the clinical, professional and administrative underpinnings required for practice of the profession. The final quarters are utilized to provide the foundational clinical experiences that expose the student pharmacists to seven Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences and a in a wide variety of required and elective rotations.
The Doctor of Pharmacy program offered through the School of Pharmacy is available at one of two South University campuses located in Columbia, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia. Since the School of Pharmacy first launched its program, the faculty has continually developed innovative methods of delivery and focused on the development of the core professionalism of each student to produce graduates who are prepared for the current and future challenges in the practice of pharmacy. The curriculum at both campuses is delivered via two-way videoconferencing in which students, studying in two states, are exposed to the very best experience and expertise of each faculty member through live and individualized instruction.
A Pharm.D./MBA dual degree is also offered at both campus locations. The MBA program is completed one quarter after completion of the Pharm.D. degree.
The Savannah, Georgia, campus is located in the midtown area of the city adjacent to historic downtown Savannah, which is known for its squares and architecture. The city of Savannah is also known for mild seasons and temperate climate with access to Coastal Georgia’s beaches and waterways.
South University itself has a rich history in education dating back to 1899 in the Savannah, Georgia. Presently, graduate and undergraduate education is offered in a variety of programs in addition to Pharmacy including Nursing and Health Professions, in campuses located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Virginia and Texas. The University also supports a vibrant community of online students with a system-wide enrollment of more than 16,000. South University is a private academic institution dedicated to providing educational opportunities for the intellectual, social, and professional development of a diverse student population.
