The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) has awarded its full eight-year accreditation to the University of Findlay’s College of Pharmacy, with the next accreditation visit scheduled for 2025.
“This is a huge accomplishment,” said Debra Parker, Pharm.D., dean of the College of Pharmacy. “It’s especially significant considering we were held to new accreditation standards this year. I couldn’t be prouder of our team effort.”
According to the ACPE website, accreditation is public recognition that a professional degree program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy degree is judged to meet established qualifications and education standards through initial and subsequent periodic evaluations. The purpose is to provide a professional judgment of the quality of the college or school of pharmacy’s professional program and to encourage continued improvement thereof.
Findlay is one of the few pharmacy schools in the country to offer a direct-entry, 0+6 program. Students are accepted directly into the pharmacy program as freshmen and continue seamlessly into the professional level of the program, graduating at the end of six years with a Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree.
