Founded in 1968, Palm Beach Atlantic University is a comprehensive, interdenominational Christian university located in West Palm Beach, Florida. The 25-acre campus is minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful south Florida beaches, and is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway.
The Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy at PBA started in 2001 and graduated its first Pharm.D. class in 2005. Accredited by ACPE, the Gregory School of Pharmacy admits 75 students annually so teaching and learning are personalized and interactive. Community service, leadership opportunities, international and local medical mission trips are just some of the unique experiences pharmacy students at PBA experience.
The Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy exists to develop servant-leaders within the profession of pharmacy by following Christ's example of serving, teaching, and healing those in need. Teaching is geared toward the primary purpose of preparing future pharmacists who excel in patient care and embrace the practice of pharmacy as a calling. No Ph.D. or M.S. graduate science programs are offered in pharmacy; the School exists exclusively to train pharmacists. Its educational programs are based on the simple premise that spiritual growth facilitates personal and professional growth. For that reason, faith is an integral part of the learning process and prayer is a common activity within the School. Students do not have to be Christian to attend the Gregory School of Pharmacy, but they need to be comfortable training in a Christian environment in which faith-based values are openly discussed. The faculty strives to help all students, regardless of religious background, integrate their own spiritual beliefs into a value system that promotes the highest standards of character, compassion, leadership and service.
