For over 95 years, the McWhorter School of Pharmacy has been a beacon of excellence in our profession. Our unique mission is to prepare students in a nurturing, Christian environment to be exemplary pharmacists and improve health worldwide. This distinctive approach, rooted in our faith, sets us apart as educators and professionals and is at the heart of what we do.

The school continues to build on its rich and storied history. The faculty has developed the country's most contemporary Practice and Team Ready curriculum. This curriculum offers a practical, hands-on approach where we prepare graduates for wherever they feel called to serve. Our program also includes a variety of ways for students to personalize their training, including joint degreesinternational experiences, concentrations (research and international pharmacy), and pharmacy practice experiences. Along the way, students earn a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy Studies and complete certificate programs related to Medication Therapy Management and Immunization Delivery. The success of our graduates on licensure examinations and pharmacy residency placements is a testament to our academic excellence and our students, faculty, and staff. Yet, what makes our students different is how they give back and serve others.  

Pharmacy is a vital profession in today's evolving healthcare system, and the McWhorter School of Pharmacy is proud to be part of the College of Health Sciences. This connection fosters interprofessional education, and our students train alongside learners from various health disciplines. These collaborative activities often occur in our Experiential Learning and Simulation Center, accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. At the heart of these schools is the Office for Faith and Health,  a critical link that connects our academic programs and the communities we serve. These experiences prepare our graduates to work alongside other healthcare professionals, combining pharmacy and faith to improve health.
