Dr. Rogan loves the sense of family among the Pacific faculty members and students.

Dr. Rogan has always been interested in science, specifically chemistry. He also enjoys working with people. He was drawn to pursue a career in pharmacy because it combined his interpersonal skills with his interest in science.

Dr. Rogan is also a photographer and a self-taught artist, with a focus on drawing and oil painting. He applies creativity to all facets of life, from painting to teaching.


Teaching Philosophy: "That I am a mediator between information and the student. I try to take my experiences in practice, life and learning, and present the information in a way that allows the student to see the practical application and importance of whatever the topic is. I like to be interactive with the class and get as much feedback about how well they understand the material and determine if I can improve their learning. True learning is more than just a multiple- choice exam; it involves applying and using their information and/or skills. I think a good teacher is one who can teach students to not only master the material, but to also facilitate their ability to think critically and understand how they learn themselves."
