University of California, San Diego (Skaggs School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Science)

In July 2000, The University of California Board of Regents approved the establishment of the UCSD School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (SPPS). The School matriculated the first class of twenty-five Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) students in the Fall of 2002. The Doctor of Pharmacy class size will increase to 60 students per class by 2005. The projected steady-state enrollment will be 240 Pharm.D. students, 60 Ph.D. students and 30 pharmacy residents.

The SPPS at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) will offer students an innovative and flexible curriculum leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree, taught by a stellar health sciences faculty in a program closely associated with the outstanding clinical, research and academic programs in the School of Medicine.

UCSD offers pre-eminent health sciences professional education and research opportunities and is ranked among the top research-intensive universities in the nation.

UCSD SPPS students will be an integral part of the rich academic and research environment on the UCSD campus. Illustrating the interdisciplinary culture, UCSD pharmacy and medical students will develop a foundation in the biomedical sciences in common classes and shared volunteer community clinical experiences. The Pharm.D. curriculum will also include basic science and professional practice classes on a campus with premier educational programs in chemistry, biology, physics and engineering. The proximity of the UCSD Scripps Institution of Oceanography will give pharmacy students the opportunity to consider research in marine pharmacology and drugs of the sea. As the practice of pharmacy and drug development in the pharmaceutical industry delve deeper into genomics, resources such as the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UCSD will become central to research in pharmacogenomics, computational biology and bioinformatics.

San Diego ranks third in the nation as an engine for the development of biotechnology products. Surrounding the UCSD campus are numerous research and development companies devoted to biotechnology and pharmaceutical development, including many developed by or with UCSD faculty.

The UCSD School of Pharmacy will provide a broad-based curriculum with strong basic science, a diversity of clinical experiences and the opportunity for independent study in a variety of research and clinical settings. The program will have five major components:
