Student Corner

Are you a high school or undergraduate student who is interested in pursuing a career in pharmacy? Come see for yourself our doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) students in action.

Our PharmD students help minimize out-of-pocket medication costs, perform a comprehensive medication review and offer over a dozen health care screenings to predominantly seniors and other Medicare beneficiaries. You will be able to sit side-by-side with our students as they provide these services and see the impact they are making on the lives of those they serve. You will also have the opportunity to network with University of the Pacific students, faculty and alumni.
