UT Veterinary Pharmacist Named President of National Organization
KNOXVILLE - Bruce McNeil, R.Ph, director of the pharmacy at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, has been named President of the Society of Veterinary Hospital Pharmacists (SVHP). McNeil, who has been with the veterinary college since 1978, was instrumental in developing the curriculum for a clinical rotation the veterinary college offers to pharmacy students at the UT Health Science Center in Memphis. During the rotation, fourth-year pharmacy students learn how drugs are used in veterinary practice, become acquainted with veterinary procedures, and gain an understanding of the level of sophistication to which veterinary medical practice has risen. As more veterinarians use pharmacists for their drug needs, the collaborative goal between UT’s Colleges of Pharmacy and Veterinary Medicine is to train a generation of pharmacists to serve the pharmaceutical needs of both human and animal patients.
McNeil earned his BS degree in Pharmacy from Mercer
University and is also a Fellow of the SVHP and a Diplomate
of the International College of Veterinary Pharmacy.
