For the second time this year I got one of my articles,”June 17 commencement marks 10-year anniversary of the UCI Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences,” featured on the UC Irvine (UCI) homepage!
With 16 academic units competing for feature space, real estate on the UCI homepage is quite competitive, particularly with the UCI Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences being one of the smallest (and youngest!) departments on campus.
My article shares how far our department has come over the past decade, and what the department has to look forward to over the next decade. Our small, yet mighty, program has achieved an impressive feat over such a short period of time:
- No. 1 feeder program for pharmacy schools with more UCI students entering UCSF than any other undergraduate program
- The only undergraduate pharmaceutical sciences degree in the UC system AND in CA
- Among the top-10 pharmaceutical sciences programs in the nation.
Our next goal?
To build Orange County’s first public School of Pharmacy!
