Beginning in the fall of 2011, the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill expanded its doctor of pharmacy program to enroll students based at UNC Asheville. The program enrolls up to twenty-five students each year.
The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy brought its PharmD education program to Asheville in an effort to better serve the health-care needs of people all across North Carolina.
The pharmacy program offered in Asheville is part of a single program based at UNC-Chapel Hill. The curriculum is the same for all students. The admission and progression requirements and process are the same for all students.
The UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy uses innovative video-teleconferencing technology to deliver real-time, interactive classroom instruction from faculty at Chapel Hill to students in Asheville so that all students receive the same educational experience. Asheville-based students also receive assistance from faculty based in Asheville, and they have a variety of opportunities to work with faculty and advisers at Chapel Hill.
The Asheville program is located in Karpen Hall. Please call 828-250-3900 with questions.
