Message From the Dean
Welcome to the Samford University’s McWhorter School of Pharmacy website. I am Charlie Sands, dean of the school and I am very pleased to share with you about our program.
The mission of the McWhorter School of Pharmacy is to nurture and prepare persons within a Christian environment to be exemplary pharmacists and to improve health worldwide through innovative pharmacy practice, scholarship and service.
A doctor of pharmacy graduate from the McWhorter School of Pharmacy is one who is prepared to:
- Render exemplary pharmaceutical care
- Succeed in a postgraduate training or degree program
- Pursue life-long learning
- Advance the practice and profession of pharmacy
Our faculty is committed to this mission and they have garnered both national and international recognition for excellence in teaching, research, and service. In addition to our very strong program for providing excellent experiential learning opportunities in Alabama and around the United States, we also offer international experiences in South Korea, Japan, China, Macau, Indonesia, Zambia, and England.
At the McWhorter School of Pharmacy we are committed to the Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners Vision in which pharmacists will be the health care professionals responsible for providing patient care that ensures optimal medication therapy outcomes.
