The College of Pharmacy at the Medical University of South Carolina has a rich tradition of educating outstanding pharmacists for more than 100 years. Every day, we build on that foundation and break new ground in each area of our trifold mission: education, research, and patient care.
By faculty resolution, resulting in an amendment to the charter in 1881, the Medical College created a Department of Pharmacy that was the first of its kind in the Deep South.
The MUSC College of Pharmacy is led by Philip D. Hall, dean, with assistance from his executive leadership team and three volunteer boards.
The MUSC College of Pharmacy is approved by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education and is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education.
