Pharmacy Schools Spotlight: Palm Beach Atlantic University

Palm Beach Atlantic University Gregory School of Pharmacy is located in West Palm Beach, Florida. The school currently holds a class size of 75 students, which enables a preferable student to teacher ratio. This may benefit the student by allowing more personalized attention relative to schools where students could be a dime a dozen in a pool of hundreds of students. The institution is considered a Christian environment with one of the most advanced technologies in a relatively new spacious 45,000 square foot four-level facility constructed in 2004 – simply amazing! The pharmacy school also provides opportunities to affect the lives of others by serving on medical missions around the world such as Central America, South America, and Africa. The school has a ‘Walkscore’ of 83 which means it gets high ratings for having commercial areas such as parks, grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops, entertainment, etc. within walking distance of the school – in short, there is plenty of things to do nearby. It does not also hurt that the school is located right on a beautiful campus by the water. If you’d think the students could doze off or daydream in class with the beautiful view of the water, think again; the pharmacy school’s class of 2011 ranked 1st in Florida for National Association of Boards of Pharmacy Exam (NAPLEX) scores.

The pharmacy school holds three types of programs: (1) Doctor of Pharmacy, (2) Joint Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) Program, and (3) a Bachelor of Science in Medicinal Chemistry. In summary, the pharmacy school is located in a great scenic location with accessible places within walking distance, within a newly constructed and spacious facility, has implemented advanced technology, provides focus on the student with a small class size, has produced successful results as evidenced by the passing rate for national pharmacy board exams, offers opportunities to serve in countries around the world with the Christian principles of serving the less fortunate, and offers a dual degree program in conjunction with the PharmD program.
