Kyvan Nguyen joined the faculty at UCSF School of Pharmacy in 2008. His unique faculty appointment entails the development of a Veterinary Pharmacy service through the university's compounding pharmacy, Drug Product Services Laboratory at Laurel Heights. While at UC San Diego, he worked closely with the Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species at the San Diego Zoo and the Wild Animal Park performing reproductive behavioral research projects on rhinos. That experience led him to Walt Disney World at Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Florida where he continued to perform animal behavioral research in numerous species including rhinos, tigers, elephants, and hippos. Dr. Nguyen ultimately completed his pharmacy education at UCSF and finished a two-year residency in Clinical Veterinary Pharmacy at the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis where his patient population included a diversity of animals from hamsters to horses. Dr. Nguyen will coordinate a veterinary compounding practice that will cover the needs of academic veterinary hospitals, large-chain veterinary hospitals, private independent veterinary practices, animal shelters, wildlife rehabilitation facilities, and zoological institutions. In addition, he coordinates the Veterinary Pharmacy elective course for UCSF pharmacy students, precepts the veterinary pharmacy rotation, supports clinical veterinary pharmaceutical research, and provides veterinary drug information to reinforce evidence-based medicine in veterinary practice.
