The Medical University of South Carolina recently broke ground on their new College of Pharmacy school in Charleston, South Carolina.
The groundbreaking ceremony took place on Tuesday, April 27 and was led by Dr. William Golod and Dr. Arnold Karig, both of which were previous deans at the university.
The new 24,000-square foot facility will be located on the Horseshoe. It is expected to take 18 months to complete.
Kathy Chessman, a previous student of MUSC’s College of Pharmacy and current professor at the school, is thrilled about the new building. Chessman said, “Dr. Golod said we would be getting a new building back when I was B.S. student at MUSC…The thought of actually breaking ground on a new building and having the construction begin is tremendously exciting…This new facility is a great opportunity to have the quality of our physical appearance reflect the quality of the education experience.”
