Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)
Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)
California Health Sciences University College of Pharmacy program has applied for accreditation status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education for its PharmD program. The following reflects the current status and process for gaining accreditation.

California Health Sciences University’s Doctor of Pharmacy program was determined to remain in Candidate status by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 135 South LaSalle Street, Chicago, IL, 60603, 312/664-3575; FAX 866/228-2631, website www.acpe-accredit.org

The Doctor of Pharmacy program of the California Health Sciences University College of Pharmacy was awarded continued Candidate accreditation status during the June 20-23, 2018, meeting of the ACPE Board of Directors based upon an on-site evaluation conducted  February 14-16, 2018, and discussion with University and School officials. If the program continues to develop as planned, full accreditation of the Doctor of Pharmacy program will be considered by the Board at its June 2019 meeting following an on-site evaluation scheduled March 5-6, 2019.

Candidate Status

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.

Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA)
Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA)
The American Osteopathic Association’s Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation (COCA) accredits osteopathic medical education programs leading to the DO degree in the United States (programmatic accreditation). The COCA also accredits free-standing colleges of osteopathic medicine where no other educational program is offered (institutional accreditation) and serves as the federal Title IV gatekeeper for those institutions. By assessing the compliance of osteopathic medical education programs based on the nationally accepted standards of the COCA, we serve the interests of the public and of the students enrolled in our Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (COMs). To achieve and maintain accreditation, an osteopathic medical education program leading to the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree must meet the standards found on the COCA website.
