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.
By joining PPS, not only will you gain more knowledge of pharmacy, but you will also have the chance to build relationships with other students and faculty in the field of pharmacy, gain knowledge to prepare for applying to pharmacy schools, and much more!
#ppsmmc challenge of the week! Have a conversation with your mentor about how they prepared for pharmacy through their EC’s, classes, internships etc. Looking for a place to start that convo??? Come check out our Experience Fair where we will be having many of our officers and members speak about their various experiences that have prepped them for pharmacy and how they got those positions! Some experiences that will be highlighted are research, being a pharmacy technician, volunteering and more!
