A LITTLE ABOUT PPS


Mission Statement:

The Pre-Pharmacy Society (PPS) at UC San Diego aims to educate interested students about the various fields of pharmacy, inform them about current events in the world of pharmacy, and guide them through the admission processes for pharmacy schools. We strive to create a friendly and beneficial environment for students to gain pharmacy-related knowledge and experience through our mentorship programs, internship opportunities, volunteer events and private tours of local pharmaceutical companies. PPS is a wonderful place to prepare you in becoming an emerging leader in the field of pharmacy.

Prepare for Pharmacy school! Join us during GBMs to learn more about Pharmacy carreers and socialize with students who are also interested in a career in Pharmacy.

Follow us on Facebook to be updated on upcoming events!
