Rural Health Focus

Located in the heart of Appalachia, the University of Charleston School of Pharmacy takes its mission to serve rural and underserved communities seriously. We prepare our students for a life of community leadership and meaningful service, as well as a rewarding career in pharmacy.

Through faculty experience, internships and local partnerships, the UC School of Pharmacy has developed an effective pipeline of expertise and excellence in this critical area of service.

“The UC School of Pharmacy and Roane General Hospital in Spencer, WV, have made it possible for me to go back to my hometown to provide diabetes management. Our local health care providers and patients welcome us with open arms and rely on and trust us in a way that can only happen in a small, rural area.”
