Gregory School of Pharmacy Forms Alliance with Ouachita Baptist

September 2019

The University’s Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy is pleased to announce a new partnership with Ouachita Baptist University, located in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, to offer preferred admission to select, dually-enrolled students at OBU.


Qualified OBU students are invited to apply to the Gregory School of Pharmacy in their junior year. Applicants will secure acceptance in the Doctor of Pharmacy program, provided they satisfy all admissions criteria, including the successful completion of prerequisite coursework, PCAT and an admission interview.

“The faculty and staff of the Gregory School of Pharmacy are driven by our commitment to preparing the next generation of pharmacists — individuals who will selflessly and professionally attend to the health needs of others,” said Dr. Jeff Lewis, dean of the Gregory School of Pharmacy. “Fulfilling this mission largely depends on the recruitment of outstanding students – those who are well-prepared academically and want to use their gifts to serve others. We find just such students at OBU and are very excited to launch this partnership.”

PBA has a similar agreement with North Greenville University in Tigerville, South Carolina.

These relationships allow students from other universities to learn to serve, teach and heal those in need through the Gregory School of Pharmacy academic program. Such learning occurs not only through the curriculum, but also through a variety of service-learning experiences, especially domestic and international medical mission trips sponsored by the Gregory Center for Medical Missions. Combined with small class sizes and highly-personalized instruction, the West Palm Beach learning destination makes this Doctor of Pharmacy program a truly transformative opportunity.

“We’re happy to announce an affiliation agreement between Ouachita Baptist University and the Gregory School of Pharmacy,” said Dr. Tim Knight, dean of OBU’s Patterson School of Natural Sciences. “This agreement provides greater opportunities for Ouachita students interested in a pharmacy career to attend a Christ-centered institution with a similar mission.”
