The Marshall University School of Pharmacy will provide residents in the region with an affordable, public alternative for pursuing a Doctorate in Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. The university’s strengths in clinical education and its strong linkages to ambulatory and inpatient care facilities provide distinct advantages for the development of a public pharmacy school that will produce well-prepared pharmacists for the field’s evolving role in the patient care continuum. The school is located in the Robert W. Coon Medical Education Building adjacent to the Huntington VA Medical Center. The facility recently received a $9 million renovation resulting in a state-of-the-art, 76,000 square-foot learning, research and pharmacy practice facility.
