The School of Pharmacy (SOP)Dean serves as the chief academic and administrative officer of the School of Pharmacy within the College of Health Professions. The Dean leads the faculty and staff in strategic planning, securing resources, implementing and evaluating academic operations, scholarship, research, service, and clinical practice operations. The School of Pharmacy programs include a three-year PharmD, an MS in pharmaceutical sciences, PharmD/MS, and residency programs (academic and clinical) in partnership with local healthcare organizations.  Our Health Professions campus location, in Hillsboro, Oregon is on the edge of the Portland Metro area. This optimal location allows one the ability to live in or near urban, suburban, or rural areas.

The Dean serves the College of Health Professions on the Deans and Directors Council, reports to, and is supervised by the Executive Dean and Vice Provost of the College of Health Professions in an open and inclusive university environment.
