Long School of Pharmacy at the University of the Pacific, are greeted by David Horgen, interim dean of the Hawai‘i Pacific University College of Natural and Computational Sciences, at the Hawaii Loa Campus, March 14.

The UoP representatives met with Horgen, Dean Lynette Landry of the HPU College of Nursing and Health Sciences, HPU Pre-Health Professions Specialist Allison Bachlet, and HPU Provost Matthew Liao-Troth to finalize a new agreement that will allow HPU students to enter UoP's Doctor of Pharmacy program with special consideration and take advantage of a 3+3 articulation. Students will be able to complete undergraduate coursework toward a Bachelor of Science in Biology at HPU and transfer after 3 years to UoP for 3 years in their D Pharm program, and be awarded respective degrees by both institutions.
