CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A coming-soon pharmacy school has a new dean, according to published reports.
The Charleston, W.Va., Gazette reported Thursday that Marshall University’s pharmacy school, which has yet to be created, had named Kevin Yingling as its founding dean. The university’s board of governors authorized the school to begin its application process with the American Council for Pharmacy Education to establish the school in October.
The pharmacy will be the third in the state, after the ones at West Virginia University and the University of Charleston. The newspaper reported that West Virginia is one of the top 10 states in terms of unmet pharmacist demand, and that number would continue to grow as the state’s population ages.
