Marshall School of Pharmacy accreditation extended

The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) has extended the accreditation term for the Marshall University School of Pharmacy doctoral program through June 30, 2030.

Program accreditation provides a national basis for quality assurance. Marshall University’s pharmacy doctorate is one of three ACPE-accredited programs in West Virginia. The program first earned accreditation status in 2016 when it was awarded the initial two-year term standard for new programs. The accreditation process includes on-site evaluations and written reports and other communication from the School of Pharmacy.

“A seven-year ACPE accreditation reaffirms our pharmacy school’s dedication to providing sustained quality education, fostering innovation and producing skilled pharmacists equipped for the evolving health care landscape,” said Dr. Eric Blough, dean of the School of Pharmacy.

The School of Pharmacy opened in 2012 and graduated its first class in 2016. There are currently 535 alumni of the Pharm.D. program. Additional information about the School of Pharmacy is available at
