UT to allow first-year pharmacy students to train in Nashville

Pharmacy students with UT Health Sciences can now train solely in Nashville, Knoxville or Memphis under new program rules expected to take effect in 2023.

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center will allow first-year pharmacy students to begin their four-year training programs on UT’s Nashville and Knoxville campuses for the first time next year, officials announced this week.

Pharmacy students are now required to spend their first semester on the Memphis campus. After that, they may transfer to the college’s campuses in Nashville or Knoxville to complete their PharmD degrees.

This program change, which is awaiting accreditation approval, would mean that students could spend all of their time training in one location. Assuming this happens, this would begin in the fall of 2023.
