Belmont’s College of Pharmacy Dean Dr. Phil Johnston said, “ACPE’s standards for accreditation are extremely high, as they should be, given that pharmacists are charged with the responsibility of public safety. I’m obviously thrilled that we have the trust of the Council."
Belmont is helping alleviate the significant shortfall of qualified pharmacists needed both in the state and country at large. The Belmont University College of Pharmacy seeks to become a nationally-recognized practice and leadership center with a five-pillared approach that will allow students to focus on pharmacy management, information management, pharmacotherapy, missions/public health or interdisciplinary care delivery. The college intends to be a prominent resource for training and supporting competent, compassionate practitioners with a passion for life-long professional improvement and service to the profession and patients.
