School of Pharmacy

School

The Pacific University School of Pharmacy offers a three-year doctor of pharmacy program that leads to a PharmD and is fully accredited by ACPE.

The PharmD program is designed to meet educational requirements for our PharmD graduates to take the NAPLEX and MPJE board examinations and apply for a pharmacist license that is required for employment in a patient care setting and is sufficient to meet licensure requirements in all 50 States to practice as a registered pharmacist.

We admitted our first class in Fall 2006. Today, our average class size is about 98 students.

The program is full time and on site. Our goal is to provide a sustainable, learner-centered environment for our students that promotes excellence in professional pharmacy education, scholarship and service.

Mission

We foster a learner-centered community that prepares leaders, scholars, and providers to elevate the pharmacy profession and interprofessional patient-focused care.

Vision

Develop caring, influential, innovative pharmacists who lead the advancement of public wellness, interprofessional collaboration, and research.

Values

  • Innovation & Leadership
  • Collaboration & Collegiality
  • Integrity & Compassion
  • Diversity & Inclusion
  • Excellence & Advancement

Diversity

The school is committed to creating an educational environment which is free from intolerance directed toward individuals or groups and strives to create and maintain an environment that fosters respect for others. As a health science educational institution, the school has a mandate to address problems of a society deeply ingrained with bias and prejudice. Toward that end, and through the Office of Student Affairs, the school provides opportunities for educational programs and activities to create an environment in which the diversity and understanding of other cultures is valued. The school does not discriminate on the basis of sex, physical or mental disability, race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, age, religious preference, or disabled veteran or Vietnam era status.
