If your calling is to empower others to live healthier lives, PBA’s Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy will provide an ideal path ahead. We’re Florida’s only pharmacy school offered at a Christian university. Our holistic learning experience includes expansive hands-on training locally and abroad. And concepts of faith throughout the curriculum will equip you with a professional perspective that will set you apart.
As a result, our graduates consistently exceed state and U.S. pass rates on the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX).
Our Doctorate in Pharmacy (PharmD) and Doctor of Pharmacy/Master of Business Administration (PharmD/MBA) joint program are highly respected in the healthcare arena. As a PharmD student you’ll earn the BS in Medicinal Chemistry after completing your first year of course work. And you can enhance your studies through our chartered student organizations, fraternities and honor societies.
Our faculty are as caring and supportive as they are respected for their scholarly and professional work. Their shared Christian values will add depth to your preparation that most pharmacy graduates simply won’t have. You’ll grow in your compounding skills, and learn their examples of compassion. For instance, one of our faculty members opened a pharmacist-run, primary care clinic for the local indigent and underserved population.
The School’s dedicated, 45,000-square-foot building features the most advanced technology and learning resources. With smart classrooms, abundant study space and a pharmacy simulation center, you’ll train with the resources that mirror the technology in the most advanced real-world pharmacy settings.
Every year, our students bring healing to needy communities locally and around the world. They initiate outreach programs delivering health screenings and raising awareness about health issues. And they travel the world on medical mission trips providing treatment in locations such as:

“PBA’s pharmacy program 4th year provides opportunities to work in a variety of pharmacy-based practice sites. During my time at those sites, I was fortunate enough to work on a project for the hospital where I analyzed how three medications were being utilized in the emergency room and compared that utilization to the cost of each medication. This experience led me to find a career within a similar field of work.” Emily Rose Reonegro, PharmD
