About University of Appalachia
The Appalachian College of Pharmacy (ACP), formerly known as the University of Appalachia College of Pharmacy, is a private pharmacy school located in Oakwood, Virginia. The school was established in 2003, opened its doors to students in August 2005, and offers Virginia's only three-year Doctor of Pharmacy program. ACP's mission is to improve the quality of life for the residents of Central Appalachia through enhanced education, health care, and economic development.

Citing a need to address a higher than normal age adjusted mortality rate (42% higher locally as opposed to the rest of Virginia) and a national pharmacist shortage, local leaders began to explore the possibility of a new pharmacy school in the region. In 2003, the Buchanan County Board of Supervisors commissioned County Attorney Frank Kilgore to start the University of Appalachia College of Pharmacy. Spurred by the success of the Appalachian School of Law, the school continued to raise funds and recruit its inaugural class. The school opened its doors in August 2005, and graduated its first class in May 2008.

In March 2009, the school changed its name from the University of Appalachia College of Pharmacy to the Appalachian College of Pharmacy. This was done in order to facilitate its application for accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), because the previous name did not "accurately represent the singular stand-alone nature of the College’s operations".

ACP, like the Appalachian School of Law, was envisioned to be an economic redevelopment tool. In its short existence, ACP is achieving that goal for the Buchanan County community. For example, as the school opened, 80 apartments were being built down the street. The school is forecast to bring in $20 million per year to the local economy.

 Located in Southwest Virginia, ACP offers a three-year Doctor of Pharmacy program, and is committed to serving the needs of rural and underserved communities in Central Appalachia as well as throughout the world.
