Pharmacy is a vital and expanding part of health care. More and more young
people are seeking a rewarding career in modern pharmacy. The pharmacies of
today do much more than dispense medicine. They are a source of information for
both physician and patient in the selection, dosage, and administration of the
thousands of drugs available. Pharmacy requires scientific knowledge, personal
and professional skills, and a commitment to a lifetime of learning.
Many schools admit students into their Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) programs
after they have completed two years of undergraduate work. Other schools require
three years of undergraduate work or even a Bachelor's degree. The minimum
requirements required for the University of Georgia and Mercer University are
available on the pre-pharmacy requirements page. Berry students are held in very
high regard by most of the area pharmacy schools and, therefore, enjoy a high
acceptance rate into their Pharm.D. programs.

Students interested in pharmacy should contact Dr. Andrew Bressette early in their
college career to discuss the pre-pharmacy requirements and application process.
