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.
