Regents discuss PharmD accreditation, new facility
The University of Iowa College of Pharmacy opened an accreditation discussion for the Doctor of Pharmacy program, commonly referred to as PharmD, during the state Board of Regents' meeting in the IMU Wednesday.
College of Pharmacy Dean Donald Letendre and Graduate College Dean John Keller said they were hopeful about a new facility for the program as well. They have begun dialogues with several architects in Cedar Rapids.
The enrollment for the pharmacy program has increased from 8 percent in 2004 to 19 percent of international and minority students.
An on-site report was done on the PharmD program in September 2010 recognizing its strengths and weaknesses. All but one of the standards listed were in compliance.
