University of South Carolina

Continued: Health fields

“During the past four years, we have implemented one of the best curriculums in the U.S., we are the program of choice for hundreds of applicants, our research productivity is up, our facilities have been improved, many of our faculty and students have received national awards and recognitions, we have exceptionally strong partners in health care organizations, and we are attracting top faculty. Not all of that is directly attributable to the integration, but it is clearly working to our advantage,” said Joseph T. DiPiro, executive dean of the South Carolina College of Pharmacy. “The proof is the caliber of the young men and women we are sending into the profession as SCCP graduates who are USC or MUSC alumni.”
