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.
It is my pleasure to share that our Research Fellow, Mehrdad Alavi (PharmD '18, MS '18), received an ASPET Mentoring Network award. Every year, the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics (ASPET) grants the ASPET Mentoring Network award to a select number of postdoctoral scientists/trainees to join the ASPET Mentoring Network program.
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.
