At Pacific Since: 2021

Gabriel Golfus, PharmD, BCPS earned his bachelor of science in biochemistry and cellular biology from University of California, San Diego and earned his doctor of pharmacy from Wingate University School of Pharmacy in North Carolina. Dr. Golfus completed a PGY-1 inpatient pharmacy residency at Novant Health Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina and a PGY-2 emergency medicine pharmacy residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Dr. Golfus was an EMT prior to pursuing a career in pharmacy. He wanted to combine his passion for patient care with his fascination with biochemistry and human anatomy. As a pharmacist he has had the opportunity to learn more about biology and apply that knowledge directly to improving patient outcomes.

What Dr. Golfus loves about his role at Pacific is interacting with students. He sees students as future colleagues and resources for staying up-to-date with advances in pharmacy.

Dr. Golfus loves spending time with his family and is an avid soccer player. He has also volunteered as a middle school and junior varsity soccer coach for many years. His other hobbies include playing Dungeons and Dragons and snowboarding.
