Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy to Locate at Frampton Hall in Downtown Clinton, S.C.
Date:2/19/2009

CLINTON, S.C., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy continues to advance towards its projected Fall 2010 opening date.

The School of Pharmacy will locate in downtown Clinton at Frampton Hall, formerly a hotel that was later converted into an assisted-living facility.

Final architectural plans for Frampton Hall call for a 50,000 square foot facility that will include: two large auditoriums seating 85-90 students, five classrooms, a simulation area, teaching and research laboratories, faculty and administrative offices, and space for students and faculty to gather. The pharmacy school also will house its own clinic in partnership with local health care providers.

Renovations are expected to get underway in early April.

Earlier this year, the School of Pharmacy announced the hiring of its administrative staff, several of which have already moved into the community. They join pharmacy dean Dr. Richard Stull who was hired last summer.

New administrators include:

  • Dr. Cliff Fuhrman, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs -- He was formerly assistant dean and clinical associate professor at the department of basic pharmaceutical sciences at the University of South Carolina's College of Pharmacy
  • Dr. Laura Fox, Assistant Dean for Professional and Student Affairs -- She was a former clinical assistant professor at the South Carolina College of Pharmacy's department of pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences.
  • Dr. Lewis McKelvey, Assistant Dean for Experiential Education and Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice -- He will join the PC staff in March; he is currently the director of experiential education for the Columbia campus of the South Carolina College of Pharmacy.
  • Dr. Scott Asbill, Chair of Pharmaceutical and Administrative Sciences -- He was a former associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences and chair of pharmaceutical, social, and administrative sciences at Samford University's McWhorter School of Pharmacy.
  • Dr. Tommy Johnson, Chair of Pharmacy Practice -- He was a former clinical associate professor in the College of Pharmacy at the University of Georgia.

The administrative group will hire several new faculty members; together, they will develop the first-year curriculum that will be implemented with the first class of 80 students who will be enrolled for the fall 2010 semester. The School of Pharmacy eventually will employ 32 faculty members and will serve 300 students.

The School of Pharmacy already has begun the accreditation process. On March 1, it will submit its application to the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. Once the school reaches "pre-candidate" status, it can begin to admit students, hopefully in late spring, 2010. The school also is working with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the agency which accredits Presbyterian College.

The Presbyterian College Board of Trustees voted last February to start a new school of pharmacy in South Carolina, the only one in the Upstate region.

Affiliated with the Presbyterian Church USA, PC has been recognized as a character-building college by the John Templeton Foundation and is classified as a national liberal arts institution with selective admissions by the Carnegie Foundation.
