Note: The School of Pharmacy may make adjustments to the curriculum from year to year. This summary includes the most recent alterations, but cannot account for differences in instructors or changes in format.

First Year Classes
Fall Quarter
Biopharmaceutics 111 (3.5 Units): Lectures are important! Do the workshop problems and study old exams to become familiar with representative exam problems. Exams are similar to workshop problems, homework problems, and old exams. Understand the concepts underlying the formulas and calculations (or else it will haunt you in second year). Books: No books are required for this course. Handouts, notes, and workshop problems are the main emphasis for examinations. 4

Biopharmaceutics 112 (Biostatistics) (2.5 Units): This course introduces the importance of statistical analysis to the practice of pharmacy. It provides the essential tools you will need in years ahead to analyze the claims made by drug manufacturers or clinical studies. It makes you aware of the ways in which statistics can be manipulated to support many different claims. Books: The biostatistics book is not required, but can be purchased used from the bookstore. Chemistry 111 (Physical Chemistry - Thermodynamics) (4 Units): Do the homework problems over and over again and study each step carefully (something as simple as a conversion may come back to haunt you during an exam). Do not trail behind, and seek help early. Office hours and review session are an excellent way to have questions answered, provided you try the homework problems before the review sessions. Look over the old exams, but different professors have taught this course in previous years and tend to emphasize different subjects. Understand the laboratory concepts. The exams may be open-book and you may be allowed to use cheat sheets. Books: The text is necessary since homework problems are assigned from it. In the past years, instructors have given open book exams, so it may be in your interest to have your own copy. Waiver: An exam is offered to those who have strong physical chemistry backgrounds in the fall. Clinical Pharmacy 111 (Pharmacy Practice I) (3.5 Units): This is the first class of a three course series in clinical pharmacy. This yearlong series is practice-oriented and topics include over-the-counter products, pharmacy practice, pharmacy law, patient counseling, and “SOAPing” (a skill that will become critical in the Therapeutics series in second year). This is similar to the CP classes in the past, but the material may be presented in a different order and format, therefore use old exams with caution. Project Days: Attendance is mandatory. Schedules will be distributed during orientation. This is required every quarter for the first year. Topics include smoking cessation, immunizations, diabetes management, asthma management, IV preparations, sensitivity training, critical thinking skills, and counseling techniques. Clinical Pharmacy 155 (Intro to Pharmacy Pathways and Careers) (2 Units): This introductory elective offers a preview of topics that will be covered in the pharmaceutical care, pharmaceutical sciences, and health policy and management pathways. Various pharmacy areas will be showcased through workshops and presentations. Students will be oriented to the principles of basic and clinical research as pursued in academia, industry, and governmental agencies. Invited lecturers will discuss specific topics of importance and provide examples of research for drug development. It will also offer an overview of the policy and management pathway, emphasizing the changing roles of and opportunities for pharmacists in policy, research and management arenas. Clinical Pharmacy 119 (Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences) (0 Units): All students in the School of Pharmacy are required to participate in Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences, or IPPEs. These are designed to provide students with exposure to clinical settings in preparation for Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs), which are the clinical rotations that are started in the third year of pharmacy school. IPPEs range from shadowing faculty members in the hospital, ambulatory care, and community pharmacy settings to interacting with the public at health fairs and certain outreach projects. Students are required to fulfill a certain hours requirement and expected to build certain competencies throughout their experiences. In addition, each student will be assigned to a reflection group lead by a faculty member that meets every quarter to discuss your experiences and address any issues or concerns. Written reflections and the logging of hours are also required throughout the year. This is a yearlong course and students are given a pass/no pass grade. Clinical Practice 110 (Pharmaceutical Calculations) (1 Unit): This is a new course for Fall 2008 and is designed to help students learn the concepts behind pharmaceutical calculations.

Winter Quarter
Anatomy 115 (Histology) (2 Units): Study the syllabus thoroughly! Hint: try reading lectures before class, keep up and you will do fine on the exams. Lab is no longer offered; however, the slides for each section studied are shown in class and again on Friday during a review session led by the TA, and are also provided on the website. Exam questions emphasize function or the significance of a structure, not just identification. 5

Books: Most, if not all, of the test material will be from the syllabus; however, the book “Basic Histology” (Lange) is a good reference and can be borrowed from the library. Biochemistry 112 (4 Units): Read the syllabus (more than once) and know it. It is not necessary to memorize every reaction, but know the important ones. Don’t underestimate the recommended readings in Stryer. Practice the multiple-choice questions at the end of each section and old exams. Exam questions tend to be tricky, so read them carefully before you answer. Books: All required information is in the syllabus. If you do not have a biochemistry textbook, borrow one from the library or your peer advisor. Waiver: For those who have had biochemistry, try to pass the waiver. Pharmaceutical Chemistry 113 (Advanced Organic Chemistry) (3 Units): This course emphasizes biochemical molecules – proteins, polysaccharides, DNA etc. Know the structures of biomolecules, their pKa’s and the biochemical reactions in the syllabus, including all small details. Different professors have taught this class in the past, so use old exams at your discretion. Attend review sessions whenever available if you are having difficulty with this class. Try to keep up with the material, as it can be difficult to cram all the reactions in at the last minute. Chemistry 112 (Kinetics) (2 Units): Practice problem sets handed out by instructor in class. Similar to the format of Chemistry 111 except the focus is on kinetics. Practice old exams from the same instructor. Books: Syllabus is sufficient and physical chemistry books on reserve at the library are useful references. Waivers: A waiver exam is offered at the beginning of the fall quarter. Clinical Pharmacy 112 (Pharmacy Practice II) (3.5 Units): Continuation of CP 111. Law and Ethics (3 Units): This course pertains specifically to the laws of pharmacy practice. Know the assigned reading for the exams, which are multiple choice. Attendance is a must! Books: California Pharmacy Law by Marsha Cohen and Bill Marcus is required and must be purchased. The Federal Drug Law Book isn’t, but may be helpful. Clinical Pharmacy 119 (Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences) (0 Units): A continuation of the IPPE experiences started Fall quarter.

Spring Quarter
Biopharmaceutics 113 (Drug Delivery Systems) (2 Units): This course introduces the various routes and delivery systems for the administration of drugs. Handouts, notes and attendance are sufficient. Keep up on the lecture notes and know them well as they can become overwhelming if kept until the night before an exam. Books: Drug Delivery and Targeting textbook that can be purchased in bookstore. Anatomy 116 (Gross Anatomy) (3 Units): Spend time in the lab viewing the cadavers – this is the best way to familiarize oneself with the structures. Listen very carefully to the instructors when they lecture in the laboratory. Learn the details regarding the function of each structure from the lectures and the syllabus (very important!). The practical exams emphasize identification of structure and function. Many students found that studying in groups of two or three, one day in addition to the regular lab period was very helpful. Some students coped with the penetrating formaldehyde smell with Vicks. Books: All required material is in the syllabus or given during the lectures, but an anatomy atlas is extremely useful. Recommended are Netter’s Atlas (diagrams only), and Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy (diagrams only.) Waiver: An exam is offered in spring for those who have had a human cadaver lab previously. Clinical Pharmacy 113 (Pharmacy Practice III) (3 Units): Continuation of CP 111 and 112.


Biopharmaceutics 114 (Bioinformatics) (2 Units): This course is an introduction to bioinformatics and other informatics resources. The goal is to become familiar with primary informatics resources for research and patient information and to introduce them to fundamentals of human health from the perspective of the human genome and related projects. No text is required. Powerpoint slides are sufficient use for studying. Lab workshops are mandatory and used to learn how to search websites and servers. Pharmaceutical Chemistry 111 (Drug Metabolism) (3 Units): This class is the beginning of your pharmaceutical chemistry series. It is important to keep up. The class itself is interesting, and constant repetition of chemical structures and synthesis reactions will give you a fairly adequate understanding of the class material. Exams are not straight regurgitation of the class notes. Taking good lecture notes and understanding the concepts will be far more helpful to you than memorization. Make sure you understand general chemistry and organic chemistry principles, i.e. electron withdrawing groups etc. Books: The handouts are detailed, and a book is not required. However, if you feel you need extra practice, many books are on Reserve. Clinical Pharmacy 119 (Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences) (0 Units): A continuation of the IPPE experiences started Fall quarter.

Second Year Classes
Fall Quarter
Immunology (3 units): The class can be challenging, and the multiple-choice exams tend to be very detailed. Book: The text is critical– keep up on the reading. Pharmaceutical Chemistry/Pharmacology (5 Units): This is the beginning of the good stuff, the bread and butter upon which your wealth of drug information will be based on. These two courses function as a unit in that they cover the same material (i.e. various drug classes) but from different points of view – Pharmaceutical Chemistry discusses the chemistry of the drug classes while Pharmacology discusses the mechanism of action and effects on the body. Missing Pharmaceutical Chemistry is especially discouraged since the syllabus mostly consists of lecture slides and not text material. Colored pencils or pens may be helpful in organizing this highly visual discipline (drug structures and pathways etc.). Pharmacology charts organized by drug class may also be good review aids for the class and the cumulative exam during your third year. Books: Katzung textbook is a good investment for the pharmacology series; ask around for others. Physiology (5 units): This class is incredibly time-consuming. Our best advice is: 1) Never miss a lecture; 2) read the lecture material in the syllabus prior to attending class 3) most importantly, do all the problems in the syllabus and when you understand them, do them again! The professors are more than willing to explain things to you again and again. The class is difficult, but not impossible! Pharmacokinetics (4 units): There are no secrets to this class, but do the practice problems. The more you see them, the more they stay with you. Don’t get tripped up in the math... try to understand the concepts behind the equations before applying them. Take advantage of conference sections, office hours, or other classmates who understand the material.

Winter Quarter
Health Policy (3 units): This course is intended to introduce the organization of the United States health care system and introduce the implications of this organization on patient care and the role of the pharmacist. Lecture attendance is critical. Pharmaceutical Chemistry/Pharmacology (5 Units): same as above


Physiology (3 Units): same as above Pharmacokinetics (3 Units): same as above Clinical Pharmacy 114 (Study Design) (2 Units): The objective of the Critical Appraisal of Study Design Course is to give students the skills needed to critically evaluate studies of various designs. Students will work in small groups to evaluate studies, including randomized, controlled trials, cohort and case control studies. Each of the evaluations will cover sample selection, data collection, analysis, as well as the numerous biases that can affect each aspect of study design. Grading will be based on participation and 2 quizzes.

Spring Quarter
Therapeutics (6 units): These courses prepare the student for clerkships through presentation of important disease states, with particular emphasis on drug therapies. In addition to 5-6 hours of lectures per week, all students participate in a two-hour conference section once a week. These sections are headed by a faculty member or resident and allow students to discuss patient cases that are related to the week’s lecture topics. Through this interaction, the student gains practical clinical knowledge and develops important verbal skills. Exams are given in both oral and written forms. The oral exam is centered on the case presentation, during which the student evaluates a case to determine appropriate drug therapy (high emphasis). This lasts approximately one hour – the student is given 30 minutes to organize his/her thoughts before a formal presentation is given to one or two faculty members. All three quarters of the series are similar in structure, but differ in content. You must pass all classes in the first two years to start the CP courses. However, based upon your grade point average and the nature of your deficiency, you may be allowed to start the CP series, even with a deficiency. Upon successful completion of all required courses of the first, second, and third year curriculum, the student is eligible to sit for the comprehensive exam given after fall quarter of the third year. Hints: Be organized. There is an enormous amount of material. Initially, study the material individually, then review cases in a small study group and quiz each other. Practice old exams with friends. Make and study SOAP sheets for exams (also save them for 4th year.) Never procrastinate! Highly recommended text: Koda-Kimble’s Applied Therapeutics or DiPiro’s Pharmacotherapy. Pharmaceutical Chemistry/ Pharmacology (5 Units): same as above Microbiology (4 Units): This class is packed with useful information on a variety of pathogenic microorganisms. Good organizational skills and diligence are musts to survive this class. Get into the habit of learning the characteristics of each microorganism in a systematic way (such as a chart.) You should pay close attention to details in the syllabus because they sometimes show up on the exam. Weekly lab sessions are mandatory and help solidify information presented in class (some of the experiments are actually fun!) The demonstrations are also good for reviewing. While most info is in the syllabus, note taking is still recommended. Learn this material as best you can, as it will be helpful during antibiotic therapeutics. Books: Medical Microbiology & Immunology is optional but highly recommended, particularly the index that contains a summary of a majority of organisms presented in class. If there is anything you should study, study these last couple of pages!

Third Year Classes
Fall Quarter
Pathology (3 Units): “Adapt or Die.” Go to review session to find out exactly where to focus your studying for exam. There is not required text for this class. Buy the syllabus. Pharmaceutical Chemistry/Pharmacology (4 Units): See previous quarters 8

Therapeutics (6 Units): Same as above Winter Quarter Health Economics (2 Units) Management (2 Units) Therapeutics (6 Units): Same as above Drug Information (0.5 Units): Don’t put off doing your homework questions until the last minute. Some can be quite time consuming.

Spring Quarter: No more didactic classes!! This is the first quarter of APPE rotations.
The Comprehensive Exam The comprehensive exam is given at the end of fall quarter of your third year. It is a three hour, multiple choice exam (100 questions) covering pharmaceutical calculations, law, OTC, nutrition, pharmacy administration, and the clinical pharmacy series. There is a makeup exam given two days later. You must have completed and passes all required classes in order to take the exam. Although you must pass the comprehensive exam in order to attend off-campus clerkships, you can take selective electives at UCSF even if you do not pass. Those students who do not pass the first two exams can take a makeup exam, followed by additional makeups at the end of each quarter. Hints: do not wait until the last minute and stay up all night studying. If you’ve kept up, a careful review of notes should be adequate. Don’t despair if you have to take it again; relax and you’ll do fine. APPE (Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences) The last four quarters of your education consists exclusively of clinical rotations (no more classes.) Students are required to do two 6 weeks inpatient rotations, one 12 week outpatient rotation, and a minimum of 9 units of selective elective rotations. Clinical rotation sites include San Francisco, South Bay, San Diego, Davis/Sacramento, Orange County/Los Angeles, and Fresno. Inpatient Rotations: These courses consist of being part of a particular service for two 6 week intervals. You must do 6 weeks of medicine (cardiology, oncology, pediatrics, etc.) and 6 weeks of surgery (vascular, neurosurgery, general etc.) The pharmacy student goes on rounds with the medical team, monitors patients, and makes recommendations. The student will present patients to his/her preceptor. He/She gives one large talk to the faculty, then several small talks to the team. Outpatient Rotations: The rotation can be completed at UCSF or SF General Hospital and is 12 weeks long. Every student has at least one day per week of general medicine clinic where they are paired with a medical student. You see patients together and present to the attending physician with therapy recommendations. You also meet with your pharmacy preceptor before the patient leaves, making sure your recommendations are reasonable. Every patient has a write-up which includes pertinent information and findings. Specialty clinics include: Diabetes, Oncology, Dermatology, OB/GYN, Psychiatry, Anticoagulant, and Geriatric Care. Students have at least 2 days of specialty clinic and one day at their community externship site. The externship site gives students an understanding of community practice. Students are required to present a 1 hour talk on a therapeutic topic of interest or controversy. Clinical Electives: Students are required to have at least 9 units of clinical (“selective”) electives. These are not the same course “elective” that you take during your first three years. If you are short in “elective” units, a “selective 9

elective” unit can replace an “elective” unit. However, an “elective” cannot replace a “selective elective” unit. Some sample selective electives are Infectious Disease, Pharmacokinetics, Toxicology and Drug Information.

Licensure in California
To be come licensed to practice pharmacy in California, you must meet the Registered Pharmacist requirements of the California Board of Pharmacy. The licensing process is primarily composed of 2 examinations, the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) and the California Pharmacist Jurisprudence Exam (CPJE). Using the scantron forms provided by OSACA, follow the instructions, complete and submit the Computerized Exam Registration Form along with $430 to the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). The NABP will confirm your eligibility with the California Board, then mail you and authorization to test. The NAPLEX is given daily except Sundays and holidays at various Prometric Testing Network locations. You can call the Prometric Call Center at 1800-796-9860 to schedule and appointment. The exam is given on computer and you score is reported only to the California Board, which will inform you by mail whether you passed the exam, usually within 14 days. Don’t forget biopharmaceutics, OTC, kinetics, and LAW. Remember, when this is over you are done! The CPJE is administered by the California Board of Pharmacy. Submit application and all required materials, including a $155 fee, to OSACA. Within 14 days of notification by the Board that you are eligible, Experior Assessments, LLC, will mail you a candidate handbook, the cover of which is your notice of eligibility. Contact Experior and once payment in received, a testing appointment can be scheduled. The CPJE is available at Experior testing sites, for $40. The exam is given on a computer at a testing center and your score is reported only to the California Board, which will inform you by mail whether you passed the exam, usually sent in about 30 days.

Intern License
To be employed as a California pharmacy intern, you must obtain a license from the California State Board of Pharmacy. The Board requires that each candidate sitting for the Board exam must have completed a minimum of 1500 intern hours to the date of the examination. An additional 500 hours are required to receive your pharmacist’s license. 600 hours are accumulated during your fourth year rotations, and the other 900 hours must be acquired through employment or volunteer work. Possible internship positions are posted outside of Student Affairs and through email. You should obtain your license as soon as possible. For Fall of 2007, all applications were due at the end of September in OSACA so that they could all be sent to the State Board at the same time. See OSACA for this years deadline. Applications are available in the Student Affairs office. The packet includes the following: an application, a list of requirements, instructions, a list of objectives and fundamental skills which should be fulfilled by the intern (a pharmacist must initial that these have been completed,) a copy of Request for Live Scan Service form , and an affidavit describing the “Rules of Professional Conduct.” A copy of Request for Live Scan Service Form verifies that your fingerprints have been scanned and all applicable fees have been paid. Refer to Instructions for Completing Request for Live Scan Service Form on the board’s Web site. The board can only accept Live Scan Service Forms that were processed in California. If you are unable to have your prints taken using Live Scan in California, you must submit rolled fingerprints on cards provided by the board and a fee of $66 made payable to “Board of Pharmacy.” (This fee covers: $32 California Department of Justice processing fee, $10 expedite fee and $24 FBI processing fee). Contact the board at (916) 445-5014 to request fingerprint cards. Fingerprint cards are to be used ONLY when you cannot have your prints taken in California using Live Scan. It may take a few months for processing (longer if not completed correctly.) If you wait until Spring, you may not receive your license in time to start summer intern jobs and may lose precious credit hours or even more precious intern job opportunities. Read the directions carefully! You should receive your license six to ten weeks after you apply. The license states your name, date of issue and expiraiton date. An intern license is usually valid for five years (i.e. one year after you’ve completed four years of school.) When you get an intern job, your employer will ask for your license as California State law requires that it be filed in the pharmacy.


A first year resident is a person who has graduated from a school of pharmacy, usually has a Pharm. D. Degree, and is participating in an additional year of an organized training program. The purpose of this training program is to increase the knowledge and skills of the individual in general areas of pharmacy practice: hospital, clinical and/or community. Residents receive a stipend ranging from $18,000 to $28,000 per year, depending on the program and the institution. A second year resident is a person who has completed a first year general residency and is currently participating in a training program in an area of specialized pharmacy practice such as drug information, pharmacokinetics, pediatrics or administration. Second year residents receive a stipend of up to $35,000 per year, depending on the program and the institution. If you have not considered whether or not you should do a residency, you should give it some serious thought by the spring quarter of your third year. During the summer quarter of your fourth year, take the time to discuss residencies with your preceptor, your supervisors, and/or with residents. Be aware of deadlines for applications, etc, and plan your fourth year schedule to have a “light” quarter when you expect to travel for residency interviews (usually Winter quarter.)

The School of Pharmacy
ASSP: The Associated Students of the School of Pharmacy, is the governing organization of the pharmacy student body. ASSP organizes pharmacy school actitivies, such as the Annual School Picnic, Career Day, Casino Night, Bagel Day and Beer and Wine Tasting. All pharmacy school students are members of ASSP and are welcome to the quarterly meetings. ASSP officers consist of a president, president elect, vice president of academic affairs, VP of professional affairs, VP of social affairs, secretary, treasurer, class presidents and representatives from other pharmacy school organizations. Office of Student and Curricular Affairs: OSACA (476-2732) is located at S-960, on the ninth floor of the Medical Sciences building. This is the office where you will turn in your completed intern license application and peruse information on perspective employers in the intern binder. Additional services include locker assignments, faxing for a nominal fee, and notary services. Get to know the staff in the office for they are all extremely nice and helpful! All pharmacy students have a mailbox in Student Lounge, which is right next door to the OSACA office. Jury Duty: Many students are upset when they discover they have been selected for jury duty. Somehow, the courts never seem to recongize finals! Each situation is different: a second year student could particpate in jury duty during the summer months, whereas a fourth year student in the middle of a summer rotation would not be available. This is why the student affairs office does not issue a blanket form to get students out of jury duty, but treats each case individually. If you are called for jury duty, you should draft a letter to the court stating that you are a student enrolled in a four year curriculum and that missing two weeks of school would seriously hinder your progress. The student affairs office has examples which may aid you. The office will have the associate dean fo student affairs sign it and will send it off for you. If you are called for jury duty, see OSACA, and more likely than not, you will be released from jury duty. For more information, feel free to call OSACA. Cheating Policy: Cheating is not treated lightly at UCSF. If you find yourself in a position of being accused of cheating, the matter will not be brushed off. Instances that seem trivial, such as copying a buddy’s homework, plagiarizing another person’s work, or signing an attendance sheet for someone who is not here, will not be tolerated and bear serious consequences. Please treat the issue with respect.

Pharmacy Fraternities
Although a fraternity is a “social” organization in which students gather to relax and have fun away from school, the UCSF (co-ed) pharmacy fraternities are heavily involved in a variety of community service activities. The two pharmacy fraternities are Kappa Psi and Phi Delta Chi. They are both involved in a number of projects that provide information and promote public awareness on a variety of health related issues.


Both the fraternities will be hosting “rush” activities during fall quarter. You are encouraged to attend as many of these activities as possible so that you can 1) get to know your own classmates better, 2) meet second, third and fourth year students, 3) learn more about the different fraternities in case you decide to join one, 4) and, maybe best of all, get a lot of free dinners. Kappa Psi: Expect a variety of parties, including the KY First Party of the Year, Halloween Party, Pledge Party, and Luau. Rush events include Bi-Frat Dinner, Info Lunch, Alcatraz Trip, Intern Night, CP Cram Session, Thanksgiving Dinner, community service opportunities, and much more. Phi Delta Chi: Expect a variety of rush and party events, including Bi-Frat Dinner, Info Lunch, PDC First Party of the Year, In-N-Out/Bowling Night, Texas Hold ‘Em Night, Crepe Night, Thanksgiving Dinner, Pledge Party, Game Night, community service opportunities, and much more.

Pharmacy Associations
American Pharmaceutical Association (APhA): APhA is a national professional organization for pharmacists. APhA focuses on national issues in pharmacy and the topics addressed tend to be very diverse subjects in pharmacy practice. This organization tends to be political in nature. Annual meetings are held in different areas of the country and attending allows you to meet pharmacists and students from all over the country. Members receive “The Journal of the Americal Pharmaceutical Association,” among other benefits. California Pharmacists Association (CPhA): CPhA is the state level organization of its parent organziation, APhA. CPhA has two statewide meetings each each year which provide a forum where legislative issues are debated and discussed. In addition, events such as Legislature Day and the Western Ed Faire, seek to educate students in the legislative process and the latest therapeutic issues respectively. Student membership in CPhA entitles them to a monthly journal titled “California Pharmacist.” Pharmacists Society of San Francisco (PSSF): PSSF is the local pharmacist’s chapter of CPhA. Students may become members of PSSF and benefit from opportunities to interact with pharmacists practicing in the San Francisco area. PSSF supports UCSF student activities and has two student representatives that attend the organization's monthly meetings. Also, many of your OTC instructors are active officers and members of PSSF. Academy of Students of Pharmacy (ASP): ASP is the student branch of APhA. Membership to ASP automatically entitles you to membership in the national (APhA) and state APhA chapter (CPhA) and all its benefits, which include discounts for textbooks and conference registration. UCSF’s ASP chapter offers an array of activies which promote leadership and legislative awareness in pharmacy including the patient counseling competition, Legislative Day in Sacramento, and trips to the APhA and CPhA meetings. With an emphasis in community services, ASP sponsors student organized projects which attend a variety of health faires thorough out the year. ASP elects officers annually. American Society of Health System Pharmacists (ASHP): ASHP is a national professional organization whose membership is directed towards pharmacists practicing clinical pharmacy. However, membership is open to all pharmacists. The official journal of ASHP is “The American Journal of Hospital Pharmacy.” ASHP has two major meetings each year, the annual meeting which focuses on legislative issues, and the mid-year meeting which offers seminars and a residency showcase. The student chapter of this organization is known as CSHP at UCSF. Membership in CSHP entitles students to benefits on the national and statewide level. California Society of Health System Pharmacists (CSHP): CSHP has many regional divisions, and the San Francisco area belongs to the Golden Gate Chapter. Areas of focus in this organization include promoting communication between patients and pharmacists and providing continuing education for pharmacists. Students may participate at the regional or state level by sitting on special committtees or participating in community service projects. Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP): AMCP is an organization dedicated to maximizing patient outcomes through effective and efficient medication principles and strategies. The student chapter focuses on educating members on various issues in managed care through workshops, seminars, and invited guest lecturers. 12

As Medicare Part D comes on line in 2006, they will be spearheading the efforts to inform the public of what that means for their future healthcare and how to utilize the new benefits. Golden Gate Society of Health System Pharmacists (GGSHP): GGSHP is the local pharmcists’s chapter of CSHP and many of UCSF’s clinical faculty are members and officers. GGSHP has monthly meetings, usually on the UCSF campus, and students are invited to attend and become members. GGSHP supports student activites, and each class has two GGSHP representatives. Student National Pharmaceutical Association (SNPhA): SNPhA plans, coordinates, and executes programs geared towards the improvement of health in underserved communities. Additionally, SNPhA srtrives to address the educational and social dispaities in the community. Their objectives are to develop leadership and professional skills, educate and promote participation in national pharmacy and health care issues, to educate and increase awareness of communities on the most prevalent disease states and related pharmeutical services.

Class of 2012
Class Officers: Each Class elects class officers (president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, plus various resentataives) for the school year. The class officers plan and coordinate social events, fundraisers, class dues, final exam schedules, etc. The class officers, particulary the class president, represent the class at various meetings and functions, serving as a liason between the class and other organizations within the School of Pharmacy. Fundraising: Fundraising is an important part of your first and second years of school. It is up to your class to make the money needed to pay for your graduation ceremony. During the first couple of years, the classes are not quite as demanding, so concentrate on fundraising during those years. Fundraising ideas in the past have included bake sales, sweatshirt sales, and selling grocery coupons. Class Dues: Class dues are mandatory and are collected annually by the class treasurer and set aside for the financing of graduation expenses and any class sponsored events such as class socials, photocopying class material, birthday celebrations etc. Bear in mind that fundraising provides a source of income for the class that is intended to cover these expenses. Therefore, the greater the effort in fundraising, the greater the budget the class has to work with to sponsor it’s events. Social Events: Your class should get together a couple of times each quarter in a social occasion like a potluck or semi-formal dinner. This will build class unity and enable you to get to know your classmates in an environment away from school. You will not only learn all the hot spots in San Francisco, but also relieve some of the stress built up from school.

Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC): ASUC is the governing student organization on campus. ASUC plans and/or financially sponsors many events, and all students are welcome to run for ASUC offices. The ASUC office is located in the Millberry Union West Wing, and offers facillities such as a a typewriter and Macintosh computers, to all UCSF Students. This year, all of the officers elected are students in the the School of Pharmacy. Housing: The housing market is very tight around campus. In the pursuit of a new apartment, plan to come to San Fransico a month or two before school starts. Check the housing board in Millberry Union. It lists a variety of housing opportunities, from people looking for roommates to unfurnished houses for 4-5 new occupants. Landlord advertising on the housing board generally offer rentals that are near UCSF or near easy transportation. New postings go up every MWF at 3pm. Remember that you will be signing leases and that you will be leaving for rotations in the spring quarter of your third year!!! Don’t get caught with a year lease and have to pay for 3 or 6 months of rent when you will not be living there. If you have the time, you may try walking the streets near campus looking for “for rent” signs. Some local landlords know they only have to place a sign out in their window to find a new tenant. You can also buy the San Francisco Chronicle and check their lisings. Looking for an apartment this way can be confusing and frustrating if you 13

do not know the area. You may need a good streep map of San Franscisco with street numbers to aid in your search. Online resources for housing include and UCSF Housing Services ( University Housing: Remember that you will have to sign leases that will take you through an entire academic year. You may be leaving for an offsite rotation during the spring quarter of your third year. Keep in mind that housing may hold you to your lease and not let you out of it. You may end up having to pay double rent for three months!!! ALDEA: The married/ single student housing apartments (Aldea) cost around $1100/ month for a one bedroom apartment. A convenient shuttle service runs down from the complex to the campus every ten minutes on weekdays during typical working hours. UCSF also owns several houses near the campus called Avenue Houses. Four or five students from the various schools are placed together as housemates. The waiting lists for both systems are long, so apply early. Persistency pays off in dealing with the housing office, call them often or else they might forget about you. Mission Bay: UCSF Mission Bay is located just south of downtown SF. It’s UCSF’S new 43-acre life sciences campus for teaching and research. The housing is open to students, post-docs, residents-interns (House Staff), and faculty for single people and families.

The library’s main entrance on Parnassus Avenue is actually the building’s third floor, which houses the circulation reference and reserve collection desks, the main GALEN room, reference books and journals, and current journals. It is recommended that you go on the library tour to save yourself a lot of time trying to find and use certain resources. The tour is about 45 minutes long, and the departure times are posted.

Parking around UCSF is horrible!! If at all possible, try to leave your car at home. If you must have a car, here are some suggestions for where to park you car while at school: CLARENDON DRIVE: located near the Aldea San Miguel Married Student Housing; usually ample parking. Free Shuttle services available from Behr Avenue to UCSF. This is a wooded area so be careful of theft. Outer Sunset: You can park your car in a residential area in the later avenues and take the N-Judah Muni up to UCSF garage. There are elevators that will bring you up to Parnassus. Most of the other streets near UCSF require a “J” sticker to park longer than 2 hours during the day, Monday through Friday. J stickers may be obtained through the city with a valid registration and more importantly, proof of residency within the avenues (ie. utility bill or lease with your name on it). Keep your eyes open for parking signs!!! Parking tickets and towing are expensive and the meter maid are on the prowl! Don’t risk parking in red zones, blocking driveways, and pay attention to street cleaning times (SFPD traffic officers often drive along with the street cleaners).
