Welcome Dean Brown on his first official day at CHSU!

 

Daniel Brown, PharmD
Dean of Pharmacy, California Health Sciences University

Dr. Brown comes to CHSU from Palm Beach Atlantic University, where he served as Dean of the Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy from 2005 to 2010, at which time he returned to full-time teaching with a focus on faculty development. He has over 35 years of academic and professional experience, much of which has been spent working in hospital pharmacy management.

“With extensive experience in the field of pharmacy, team-based learning, and clinical practice, Dr. Brown will be instrumental in leading our College’s unique mission and prepare our students to become Advanced Practice Pharmacists,” says Wendy Duncan, PhD, SVP Academic Affairs, Provost at CHSU. “He is an accomplished leader who can help to develop our faculty’s teaching and clinical skills with an innovative curriculum to prepare our students for the highest degree of professional preparation.”

In 2013, Brown was recognized as a Certified Consultant-Trainer at the Team-based Learning Collaborative (TBLC), a world-renowned organization that encourages and supports the use of team-based learning in all levels of education.

Dr. Brown has served as a clinical practice faculty member at four other schools of pharmacy, holding such positions as director of drug information, director of experiential education, director of pharmacy services, director of ambulatory care, and program director for an ASHP-accredited pharmacy practice residency.

He also served as the Director of Pharmacy Services at San Joaquin General Hospital near Stockton, CA in 1987-1988 and 1998-2001 and at Merced Community Medical Center (now Mercy Merced Medical Center) in Merced, CA from 1991 to 1998.

His passion for serving patients and the health care needs of our community will help us achieve our university mission to healthcare outcomes of people living in the Central Valley, stated Dr. Duncan.

Dr. Brown completed his Clinical Pharmacy Residency at the University of Illinois Medical Center, Doctor of Pharmacy at the University of the Pacific School of Pharmacy, and Bachelor of Science at the University of Wisconsin.
