Background. The College of Pharmacy, based in Athens, has established and accredited clinical campuses in Augusta, Albany and Savannah, Georgia.

The Department of Clinical and Administrative Pharmacy is one of two academic units within the College of Pharmacy with the department head located on the Athens campus and Associate Department Heads on each of our Albany, Augusta, and Savannah campuses. The Department of Clinical and Administrative Pharmacy is integral to the delivery of the Doctor of Pharmacy, graduate (Ph.D.), and post-graduate training programs. The department has nine joint PGY-1 & -2 residency programs with health-system partners and a graduate (M.S./Ph.D.) program across the spectrum of translational science.
