Degree Overview

Doctor of Pharmacy

Kirsten Boggs-Mock, Doctor of Pharmacy, Class of 2019

The South University Doctor of Pharmacy degree program is designed to provide progressive, quality postgraduate education for the pharmacy profession’s future practitioners. The role of pharmacists in the medical field is changing and evolving to meet the demands of the profession and society. The Pharmacy degree curriculum at South University is structured to produce graduates who can adapt to the profession’s changes while also maintaining high standards of pharmacy practice. Although the School prepares pharmacists for all areas of practice, special emphasis is placed on the community environment in which the majority of health care services will be provided in the future.

“Being in a fast-paced, accelerated year-round program really helped me with organization, time management, and prioritization skills which are useful for any career—not just pharmacy. Both staff and faculty were very opening and welcoming and willing to help. It felt like a small community, and I always felt at home.”

“One of the most amazing things I've discovered about myself at South is my ability to organize people and motivate groups to work for the things they care about. I'm no longer the shy one. In fact, the conferences I've been able to attend, the leadership opportunities in student activities; all that I've found at South have allowed me not only to grow professionally, but to break further out of that quiet place I used to know.”
