Mary Anne Koda-Kimble, dean of the UCSF School of Pharmacy from 1998 to 2012, earned a PharmD degree from UCSF in 1969 and joined the faculty in 1970. She was one of a small group of pioneering practitioners who blazed the trail for what would become known as clinical pharmacy — now an established discipline in which pharmacists care directly for patients in all settings to ensure the optimal and safe use of medications and promote health and disease prevention. In this video profile originally posted in 2009 on the UCSF diversity website, Koda-Kimble reflects on her life growing up as a Japanese American and daughter of rice farmers in a small rural town and her career as a national leader, educator and clinical pharmacist.
