The College of Pharmacy at the Medical University of South Carolina provides a premier pharmacy education leveraging the innovative inter-professional learning opportunities offered at South Carolina’s only comprehensive academic health center with a full range of programs in the biomedical sciences.
MUSC pharmacy students immersed themselves in compounding during a special boot camp on campus February 23-24. Twenty-seven students participated in the Professional Compounding Centers of America (PCCA) Boot Camp, an intensive two-day session that furthered their compounding training.
The MUSC College of Pharmacy Alumni Ambassador Program was a big part of the fall recruiting campaign, in which the College was represented at formal recruitment events at Clemson, UGA, Furman, USC, North Carolina State, the Atlanta University Center and many more. Contact Abby Grady for information.
The 2018 Medisca Student Pharmacist Compounding Competition winners are Meghan White, Zach Posey and Ryan Rosenblatt. The team will go on to represent MUSC in the eighth annual national competition, held March 17-18, which includes a practical lab, a Q-and-A, a presentation and a compounding challenge.
The MUSC College of Pharmacy Alumni Association Museum includes a turn of the century workstation and prescriptions, photographs, and early reference texts. Devices used by pharmacists prior to the era of manufactured pharmaceuticals are displayed including: pill machines, suppository molds, mortars, pestles made of iron, wood, ceramics, and glass, and a variety of antique balances.
The museum was renamed to incorporate the MUSC College of Pharmacy Alumni Association at Alumni Weekend in 2009 after alumnus Ralph Wilkie '53 helped lead an Alumni Association fundraising effort to install new cabinetry and lighting. Many of the individual collections in the museum are named after alumni donors responsible for them.
The museum is free and open to the public. Advance reservations are required. Tours are available on request.
