RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia Commonwealth University's School of Pharmacy has announced it will open a satellite location this fall at the University of Virginia Medical Center.

It will be the school's second regional pharmacy education division. The pharmacy school's Inova Fairfax Campus opened in 2007.

In anticipation of its deal with U.Va., the pharmacy school admitted 10 additional students to its incoming doctor of pharmacy class in 2010 and 2011. Ten students from each of those classes will spend their third and fourth years at the U.Va. campus after completing their first two years at VCU's MCV Campus in Richmond.
