3-years accelerated PharmD program moves from candidacy to full accreditation
Miami, FL, February 2, 2023 – LU College of Pharmacy’s doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) degree program received its accreditation action and recommendations report from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). ACPE found the School to be fully compliant with all 25 of its standards and has granted the Doctor of Pharmacy program Accredited status at their Board meeting.
ACPE is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as the national agency for the accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy.
“The ACPE accreditation standards are developed by peers
across the pharmacy profession. To be fully accredited means that we are
meeting the standards set by our peers for a program that provides quality
education.” remarks Dean Ruth E. Nemire.
