About Appalachian College of Pharmacy

The Appalachian College of Pharmacy is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and is the only three-year Doctor of Pharmacy program in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Therefore, our students graduate and enter the workforce one year earlier than graduates from a traditional four-year program and they do so with equivalent classroom hours and clinical training. Our students save one year of tuition and related expenses while earning income one year sooner, providing substantial monetary savings and a quality pharmacy education.

The Appalachian College of Pharmacy’s mission is to cultivate a learning community committed to education, community outreach, and the professional development of pharmacists.

A majority of our graduates are practicing pharmacy in the Appalachian Region – positively impacting health care in an underserved region.

I’d like to make new friends, try something new, and have fun! Unfortunately, I think I fall outside of the age range.

Katherine Baker Brashear could you pass this along to Denise or other interested parties as well?
