One way the School of Pharmacy aims to build interest in its programs is to invite high school students to the Hillsboro Campus for a day. Recently, a science class from Portland's Cleveland High School paid a visit.
Doctor of Pharmacy
The Pacific University School of Pharmacy offers a three-year program that leads to a doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) degree.
Courses are offered in a modified block design, allowing students to study one topic at a time before moving on to another content area. Experiential components are integrated into the first two didactic years of study, and the third year is devoted entirely to advanced clinical experience.
At Pacific, we emphasize the integration of concepts, as well as teamwork and collaboration among students. As one of several health professions programs offered at Pacific's Hillsboro Campus, we also emphasize interprofessional cooperation among the healthcare team.
The School of Pharmacy is fully accredited by the ACPE. We admitted our first class in Fall 2006. Today, our average class size is about 98 students.
Celeste Rizzo PharmD ’15 and her husband Mark welcomed their first son, Simeon Baldwin Rizzo, in May 2018.
Please join me in congratulating School of Pharmacy faculty members Fawzy Elbarbry, PhD, RPh, BCPS and Deepa Rao, PhD, on their recent publications of new work.
