Cynthia Valle-Osegura resizedDr. Cynthia Valle-Oseguera ’12 is originally from Mexico but has lived in the Bay Area for over a decade. She obtained her bachelor of science in biotechnology from University of California, Davis and finished her doctor of pharmacy degree with University of the Pacific. She completed her two general post-graduate years at an ambulatory care residency at the Boise VA Medical Center.

Dr. Valle-Oseguera’s inspiration for teaching began during her residency training as she was able to work with the faculty at Idaho State University College of Pharmacy. She found the experience to be rewarding because teaching the students improved her clinical skills. She looks forward to giving back to the Stockton community through coordinating Health Care Outreach Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience activities. Dr. Valle-Oseguera will also be assisting in other courses including: geriatrics, Medicare Part D, practicum and a Spanish elective. She has returned as an Assistant Professor because of countless memories that were shared with the School’s outstanding faculty:

“One of my fondest memories was being part of Medicare Part D. There I was able to actively practice the material I was learning while making a big impact in our surrounding communities. I enjoyed the direct patient care and the family feel within our class.”

She attended the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) Institute in October along with Dr. Eric Boyce, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Dr. Paul Subar (Dentistry) and Dr. Darren Cox (Dentistry).
