Pharmacy alumni

Since the UCSF School of Pharmacy graduated its first student in 1874, School alumni have brought their skills and compassion to patients and institutions worldwide.

Each year we are proud to induct dozens of young pharmacists into the UCSF Pharmacy Alumni Association. We encourage them to stay connected, reinforcing the social bonds that enable our profession to maximize its benefits to communities near and far.
