Update from the Dean – May 2019

Dear UCSF School of Pharmacy Family and Friends:

At the UCSF School of Pharmacy we don’t just embrace change, we create it. We have a rich history as drivers of change in our profession, in science, and in education. That passion for change, coupled with a scientific mindset, is clearly evident today in the School, as you’ll read in this Update.

I have much to share, so I’ll get right to it.

With warm regards,
