SUMMER OPEN HOUSE - Friday July 31st. Registration will open soon.
The McWhorter School of Pharmacy (MSOP) is one of ten schools located on the Samford University campus. Named one of the nation's Most Beautiful Christian Universities in 2013 and sitting on 180 beautiful acres, Samford is located in the suburbs of Homewood, just minutes from downtown Birmingham, Alabama. At Samford, you will enjoy the serenity provided by a suburban campus, but yet be only minutes away from the heart of healthcare in Alabama. The MSOP is part of the Samford University College of Health Sciences, which also includes the Schools of Nursing, Public Health, and Health Professions. We believe education is our primary enterprise and continually seek methods for delivering the very best student learning opportunities.
The MSOP complex includes 50,000 square feet of state-of-the-art teaching and laboratory facilities, an ideal setting for students to learn to live out our vision statement: Preparing Pharmacists Who Transform Lives. Our educational approaches, including our integrated curriculum and longitudinal practical experiences, well prepare pharmacists for the ever changing pharmacy roles that are common in today's healthcare system. MSOP students have a long-standing history of success on the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX). The MSOP currently enjoys a 10 year pass rate of over 98% on the NAPLEX. The MSOP admission office strives to provide the Pharmacy Admission Committee with a qualified and diverse applicant pool. Approximately fifty percent of our students are out-of-state residents, twenty percent minority/international, and forty percent enter with a prior bachelor's degree. The MSOP offers an early assurance program and participates in the PharmCAS early decision program. Please visit our website for more details regarding our program: http://www.samford.edu/pharmacy/.
