Notes from the Dean

This year the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and the University of the Pacific are celebrating a milestone. Sixty years ago the School of Pharmacy admitted the first class of 16 students with the promise that, by providing an outstanding education, they would become practice-ready pharmacists. The School’s founders also made a promise to society that, through innovative research, we would contribute to the provision of quality patient care in our community.

As I reflect on the success of our students and faculty, the leadership of our alumni and the continually expanding network that is the Pacific PaHS Family over the last 60 years I realize we are celebrating the fulfillment of those promises and our renewed commitment to them.

I would encourage every student to explore every facet of pharmacy to find what interests them.” A class that altered the trajectory of Dr. Acosta’s career […]
