Notes from the Dean

As we begin a new year I feel like this is a great opportunity to share some of the exciting plans we have for the School and our programs.

Like the School, the health care profession has seen tremendous growth in both the need for providers and in the number of institutions providing education programs preparing future professionals. The most recent trend in health care education has been the large growth in institutions offering a doctor of pharmacy degree over the last several years, especially in California. As we celebrate our accomplishments over the last sixty years, it is important for us to consider the most impactful advancements we can make in the next decade to keep the School on the forefront of innovative health care education. To accomplish that goal we have shaped the School’s strategic plan, as well as those for each department, with a focus on student services and support, teaching, patient care, research and alumni support programs that we want to initiate or expand in order to build upon our long history of success. I would like to highlight just a few examples of our exciting plans…
