Program Description

Palm Beach Atlantic University is located in West Palm Beach, Florida. The 25-acre campus is minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful south Florida beaches, and is situated on the Intracoastal Waterway. The Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy at PBA started in 2001 and graduated its first Pharm.D. class in 2005. Accredited by ACPE, the Gregory School of Pharmacy admits 75 students annually so teaching and learning are personalized and interactive. Community service, leadership opportunities, international and local medical mission trips are just some of the unique experiences pharmacy students at PBA experience. The Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy exists to develop servant-leaders within the profession of pharmacy by following Christ's example of serving, teaching, and healing those in need. Teaching is geared toward the primary purpose of preparing future pharmacists who excel in patient care and embrace the practice of pharmacy as a calling. The faculty strives to help all students, regardless of religious background, integrate their own spiritual beliefs into a value system that promotes the highest standards of character, compassion, and leadership.
