Foster Independent, Life-Long Learning

Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy is committed to providing a quality education that enables students to provide optimal team-based care and be recognized as servant leaders in their communities. To foster independent, life-long learning and to aid in professional identity formation, special concentrations are available for students to pursue.


There are three concentration areas from which students may elect to participate while completing the regular PharmD curriculum:

To pursue an area of concentration, the student must:

  • Have completed the first year (P1) PharmD program curriculum,
  • Formally apply online by November 1st of the second year (P2).

Students in their third (P3) or fourth (P4) year may apply if it is determined feasible to complete the concentration requirements prior to graduation. Due to the expectations related to a concentration, in addition to the regular curriculum, acceptance of students achieving a cumulative GPA below 3.0 will be evaluated by the Office of Academic Affairs. Continuation in the concentration for students with a GPA below 3.0 will be evaluated on an individual basis.

Upon graduation, students successfully completing a concentration in the Doctor of Pharmacy program will be recognized and presented with a certificate of completion.
