College of Pharmacy’s doctoral program in Savannah earns accreditation

The UGA College of Pharmacy’s accreditation for its doctoral program now has been affirmed for its extended southeast Georgia campus at the St. Joseph’s/Candler Health System in Savannah.

To celebrate the achievement, UGA and St. Joseph’s/Candler will hold an open house Aug. 18 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Candler Hospital in the Heart and Lung Building, Suite 210. The event is open free to the public.

The campus at St. Joseph’s/Candler becomes the third accredited location for the college’s 2+2 program, where Doctor of Pharmacy students study in Athens for the first two years of pharmacy school and finish their degree requirements with two years of training in one of four geographic areas: Athens or the extended campuses in Savannah, Augusta or Albany.

The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education granted the program accreditation at its recent meeting.
