Faculty & Staff

The faculty and staff at Harding University College of Pharmacy are invested in their students. Our alumni say it best. “What really sets Harding’s program apart from other pharmacy schools is the emphasis on patient-centered care and a heart of Christian service. Providing the best outcome to your patients is only possible if they trust you and you can communicate the necessary information to them — both things I was taught well by Harding faculty and staff.” –Dr. Kirsty Washam (2014)
