Pharmacy Schools Support ACPE Degree Standards


Hitchens, Kathy, Drug Topics


The 1997 annual meeting of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (ACP) affirmed the reality of the Pharm.D. as pharmacy's entry-level degree. Though the July 15 open session at the Indianapolis Westin was packed nearly to capacity, educators did not quibble over the Standards 2000, which will ultimately accredit solely the Pharm.D.

In this time frame, standards for the B.S. degree will be the same as those adopted in 1985.

Since the first notice of intent to revise standards was given in September 1989, the procedure involved a step-wise process spanning eight years. …
