The Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).
Our graduates continue to excel on the pharmacy licensing board exams. The 2013 graduating class achieved the highest passing rate in the state on the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX), the second time in the school's history.
We appreciate your prayers for our continued success and ask that you help support this important scholarship fund that will assist GSOP students who demonstrate financial need.
The Great Commission Pharmacy Mission Scholarship
This scholarship recognizes rising first, second and third-year students who will be attending a GSOP medical mission trip. I am proud to report that between 2003 to 2013, more than 431 members of our faculty, student body, and alumni have participated in mission trips all around the world. In total, they have treated 8,999 patients and filled 21,584 prescriptions. Locations have included: Amazon River (Brazil), Belize, Belle Glade, Fla., Bolivia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Taiwan, Uganda, and Zambia.
Our GSOP medical mission trips are based on Matthew 28:18-20: Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
The recipients of this scholarship are selected based on a written essay in which students describe their reasons for participating in a mission trip and what attributes they will offer to the team. The recipients also must be in good academic standing and demonstrate financial need.
Thank you in advance for your kindness and for helping us to train future servant-leaders and pharmacists at Palm Beach Atlantic University Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy.
