The PharmSci Alternative Careers Association (PACA) was created to provide camaraderie and information on careers in fields other than Pharmacy. The group provides professional and career development opportunities to enhance students’ skills and applications to graduate school (MS, PhD, MD, PA, DDS, etc.) and various jobs in the pharmaceutical industry.
A professional and career-oriented campus organization based on student leadership and team building, Pre-Pharmacy Society (PPS) at UCI is dedicated to providing a social environment in which it encourages students interested in pharmacy to thrive as competitive applicants and as student leaders. Opportunities are offered to members in the form of weekly general meetings, volunteer and job opportunities, networking opportunities, social events, and more!
The Pharmaceutical Sciences Mentorship Program was designed to help first-year students ease the transition from high school to a university. This program provides students with the opportunity to be paired with a current PharmSci student to learn more about UCI and the PharmSci major. First-year students will not only get the chance to gain deeper insight on the campus, its resources, programs and major, but they will also create friendships with their mentor and other mentees. In addition, mentors and mentees will participate in various networking events throughout the academic year in order to help build connections with faculties and other on-campus and off-campus organizations.
PUPS strives to foster an environment where students can thrive academically through our tutoring services and academic resources. We emphasize growth, encourage inclusivity, and provide a safe space for students to study or wind down from stressful exam periods.
