Our student-centered, holistic approach to education will develop you professionally, clinically, and spiritually. By actively practicing “Pharmacy with Faith” we develop servant-leader pharmacists who are patient care advocates. Our commitment to demonstrate “Excellence with Character” can be seen by our high first-time pass rates on the NAPLEX licensure exam.

Small class sizes ensure every student is seen and known.
We develop servant-leaders who are patient care advocates. The Gregory School of Pharmacy serves the healthcare needs of the public by training future pharmacists to be patient-centered advocates who promote wellness and improve health outcomes. We develop servant-leaders who are fully committed to raising the standards of practice within the profession of pharmacy by following Christ’s example of serving, teaching, and healing those in need.
We demonstrate professional excellence grounded in Christian character. The Gregory School of Pharmacy is distinctive in its commitment to honoring biblical values and moral principles in the pursuit of academic and professional excellence. Faculty, staff, and graduates achieve outstanding levels of performance by putting their faith into action in the following ways: Patient and/or student-centered advocacy, a spirit of unity and teamwork, compassionate service, honesty and integrity, humility before God, grace under pressure, moral courage.
Our programs are tailored to provide a relevant and innovative education that will prepare our students for the healthcare environment of today and tomorrow. As a PharmD student you’ll receive training in every facet of patient care with the option to receive a Master of Business Administration degree. You can also enhance your studies through our chartered student organizations, honor societies, medical mission trips, and post-graduate training opportunities.

Our faculty are as caring and supportive as they are respected for their scholarly and professional work. Their Christian values will add depth to your preparation that most pharmacy graduates simply won’t have. You’ll grow in pharmacy knowledge and skills while also learning from their examples of compassion. For instance, one of our faculty members practices in a local primary care clinic for the local indigent and underserved population.
