Possible changes to Paintsville pharmacy school

Some changes could be coming to the new pharmacy school being built in Paintsville.
Midway College and the University of Charleston in West Virginia are conducting a study and discussing the University of Charleston School of Pharmacy operating the Paintsville school as a branch of its campus.

A news release states, "The letter of intent, signed December 28, starts a 60-day due diligence period, during which the schools will explore the feasibility and ramifications of the expansion and seek approval from the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). If a final agreement is reached, the University of Charleston would operate the school of pharmacy in Kentucky as a branch campus and deliver its full four-year Pharm.D. program in Paintsville beginning in January 2013."

The news release states more details will be released as the process progresses.
