RBC Signs Pharmacy Transfer Agreement With Shenandoah University
Richard Bland College of William & Mary and Shenandoah University have signed an articulation agreement that allows five RBC students to transfer to Shenandoah’s four-year Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) curriculum each year.
As per the agreement that begins immediately, Shenandoah will give priority admission to RBC students who score in the 50th percentile or greater on the Pharmacy College Admission Test (PCAT), earn a 3.2GPA or above (overall and in prerequisite courses) and complete a successful interview along with all other admission requirements.
“Richard Bland College is working to advance the goal of 100% student success, and this transfer agreement with an exceptional partner like Shenandoah University reinforces that mission,” said Acting Provost Dr. Kenneth LaTessa. “This agreement provides an avenue for students to realize their future academic and career goals.”
Incoming pharmacy students may choose to study at one of two Shenandoah locations — in the scenic Shenandoah Valley on the campus of Valley Health’s award-winning Winchester Medical Center, and in the vibrant, ever-growing Northern Virginia, near Dulles International Airport and Washington, D.C., at the Inova Center for Personalized Health in Fairfax.
“RBC students can matriculate directly into the program and, in a total of six years, they will earn a Pharm.D.,” said Robert DiCenzo, Pharm.D., BCPS, FCCP, dean of Shenandoah University’s Bernard J. Dunn School of Pharmacy. “Whether a student wants to practice in the industry, serve as a community or hospital pharmacist or work for the government, the career opportunities in pharmacy are truly limitless. We’re proud to partner with Richard Bland to prepare students for pharmacy’s future.”
