Kylie Ball

Education Coordinator

I am an Education Coordinator in the Office of Education and Instructional Services (OEIS) in the School of Pharmacy PharmD program. I work with students, faculty, deans, and staff schoolwide and campuswide to coordinate the didactic education for 2nd- and 3rd-year PharmD students. I am also assisting in the logistics of the 2018 and Beyond New Curriculum build.

I am a lifelong learner and have a passion in assisting others to achieve their goals. I also participate in the UCSF Vocal Chords a cappella club, show photography at the annual UCSF Art Show, and love spending time in the Makers Lab creating and tinkering with new creative projects.

OEIS is an exciting and innovative team that provides many services to faculty, students and staff. I love being in a collaborative, innovative and engaged environment. By working together, we truly achieve the ultimate success.
