About KPIC

Good Science. Good Practice. Good Business.


The Kennedy Pharmacy Innovation Center's vision is that the UofSC College of Pharmacy is the recognized leader in transforming pharmacy education and practice.


To be a catalyst that partners with faculty and students to revolutionize pharmacy education at UofSC College of Pharmacy in order to dramatically impact the personal and professional fulfillment of our graduates.


Many choose the study and practice of pharmacy as a well-marked trail – a sure path to a respected occupation in an established and honorable profession.

For a few, though, it is a frontier ripe with possibility – a universe of science and business in which to build something more, something bigger, something no one has imagined before. They see the core curriculum as a base for exploration and innovation, for elevating, enlarging and enhancing the role of pharmacy and pharmacists in an ever more challenging healthcare landscape.

KPIC programs prepare future pharmacists to pursue that dream in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment that encourages ingenuity and innovation. By connecting the nation’s top minds in entrepreneurship, communications, health sciences, and other disciplines with leading pharmacy practice faculty, the hallmark and legacy of KPIC will be innovation in practice and education.

Our collaboration with the acclaimed Darla Moore School of Business for strong student support and entrepreneurship training escalates the culture of innovation. Educational strategies beyond the core curriculum, focused on entrepreneurship, give students the opportunity to discover and realize true innovative change.
