Manchester University College of Pharmacy’s Doctor of Pharmacy program has been granted Candidate status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 2135 South LaSalle Street, Suite 4100, Chicago, IL 60503; 312/644-3575; FAX 312/664-4652; web site www.acpe-accredit.org.
With respect to clarification of the meaning of Candidate accreditation status, graduates of a program so designed would, in the opinion of ACPE, have the same rights and privileges of those graduates from a fully accredited program. The Candidate accreditation status denotes a developmental program that is expected to mature in accord with stated plans within a defined time period. It should be underscored, however, that decisions concerning eligibility for licensure by examination or reciprocity reside with the respective state boards of pharmacy in accordance with their state statutes and administrative rules. Should Candidate accreditation status be awarded to a program, ACPE would, however, make its position known and make recommendations consistent with that position.
ACPE Standards Complaints
The American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE), the pharmacy program accreditation agency, is required to demonstrate to the U.S. Secretary of Education its expectations regarding a program’s recording and handling of student complaints. ACPE must demonstrate a link between its review of complaints and its evaluation of a program in the accreditation process.
A complaint regarding Manchester University College of Pharmacy’s compliance with ACPE standards, policies or procedures can be filed by a Manchester University Pharm.D. student by completing a formal written complaint using the student complaint eform which can be found in the Students Complaints folder of the COP Home folder in the University’s learning management system, Desire-2-Learn. Institutions, students, faculty or the public may submit a detailed written complaint directly to ACPE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
