At Pacific Since: 2014

Edward L. Rogan, PharmD, BCACP, FCPhA earned his bachelor of science in biology from University of Illinois and his doctor of pharmacy from University of Iowa. Originally from Chicago, Dr. Rogan followed his Californian wife to the West Coast to pursue a career as a pharmacy manager. He oversaw a community site for Pacific's Advance Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) program. Dr. Rogan received the Stockton Region Preceptor of the Year award in 2006 for his excellence in facilitating students on rotations. Dr. Rogan has a wealth of experience in pharmacy practice from working at an independent pharmacy. He became a member of the Pacific faculty in 2014.

Dr. Rogan loves the sense of family among the Pacific faculty members and students. Dr. Rogan's teaching philosophy is to first assess the students' initial knowledge and then use active learning strategies to challenge students to master tasks. He also wants to help students see the overall scope of the pharmacy profession. In his role at Pacific it is his goal to help contribute to the development of the best pharmacists in California.

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. The most influential person in his career was his mentor while he was studying for his doctor of pharmacy, Randy McDonough.

Dr. Rogan was the President of the San Joaquin Pharmacists Association in 2008 and 2013. He is also a member of the California Pharmacists Association, the American Pharmacists Association, the American Public Health Association, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy and the American College of Clinical Pharmacy.

He plays guitar in a band that has recorded and released three albums. He enjoys both writing and performing music. Dr. Rogan is also a self-taught artist, with a focus on pastels and oil painting. He tries to apply creativity to all facets of life, from painting to teaching.

Teaching Interests

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."
