NEW YORK — A pharmacy graduate school in New York has received full accreditation.
Touro College announced Monday that the Touro College of Pharmacy, in Manhattan's Harlem neighborhood, has received full accreditation for its doctor of pharmacy program from the Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education, which the Department of Education recognizes as the national agency for accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy. The college enrolled its first class in fall 2008, after receiving precandidate status from the ACPE and approval from the New York State Education Department.
"Achieving this prestigious national accreditation is a demanding and intense process and a tremendous accomplishment for the school, its leadership and the entire college community," Touro College president and CEO Alan Kadish said. "I commend Touro College of Pharmacy, which now is poised to become a national leader in the profession as it continues to fulfill its mission of improving the public's health through educating a diverse student body to serve underrepresented communities and minimize health disparities."
