Department of Pharmacy Practice

Pharmacy Practice prepares clinician-scholars who are responsive to pharmaceutical care issues in society. Programs of study leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. are built upon the specialty areas of Pharmacy Practice faculty to provide a unique interdisciplinary program which will meet each student's special educational objective. Graduates of our programs are prepared for careers in academia, pharmacy practice, and industry.

Because our graduate student enrollment is limited, faculty and students develop close working relationships. Research projects utilize resources in patient care areas along with a variety of laboratory investigations.

Pharmacy Practice is affiliated with several health care institutions for the purpose of teaching and research. Affiliations include:

  • Veterans Administration Medical Centers in Palo Alto, San Francisco, San Diego, and Long Beach
  • David Grant Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base
  • Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii.


In addition, the School of Pharmacy & Health Sciences is affiliated with over 100 teaching hospitals, health systems, and related patient care settings.
