Pacific's Premier Health Care Programs
Our renowned programs in dentistry and pharmacy and health sciences equip you to become a leader in those fields. We do that by keeping you as a student, as an individual, front and center.
Look at the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, which boasts one-third of the currently practicing pharmacists in the state and alumni who are leaders in every health science field. The program also has one of the highest retention rates in the country (95 percent complete their degree here).
Why? Because students always come first.
At the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry-one of the nation's leading dental schools-- graduates develop the tools they need to adapt to an ever-changing, increasingly complex world.
It's a school renowned for its humanistic model of education, one which respects the dignity of each individual and fosters limitless potential for growth.
Perhaps that's the secret to our successful graduates in those fields. And perhaps Arthur A. Dugoni, dean emeritus of the school, put it best: "At Pacific we build people, and along the way they become doctors."
A Prescription for Success
Carrying cancer-fighting chemicals and other vital medications is just one part of Pharm. D graduate Nicole Martinez's busy and impressive job as a post-graduate pediatric resident at Children's Hospital Central California in Fresno.
