Dr. Weissman received his Doctor of Pharmacy from the University of Southern California School of Pharmacy in 1963, and his law degree from Loyola Law School in 1989. Dr. Weissman’s pharmacy experiences have been varied. He has practiced as a community pharmacist, hospital pharmacist, Director of Pharmacy Services for a 550 bed facility at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Long Beach, California, and a military clinic pharmacist while in the Army. He has also served as a past member of the Advisory Task Force for Review of California Pharmacy Law for the State of California. His true enthusiasm has been in pharmacy education. In January 1998 he was appointed Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the U.S.C. School of Pharmacy where he also has a faculty appointment of Associate Professor of Clinical Pharmacy. In 2012 he served as Associate Dean of Faculty/Student Affairs and Admissions until June of 2016, and presently serves as an Associate Professor of Clinical Pharmacy. Dr. Weissman has been involved in the coordination of several courses within the Pharmacy School curriculum: the pharmacy law course, the four courses in community pharmacy (including the clerkship course), the industrial pharmacy course (which was offered for the first time in Spring of 1999) and has provided lectures in several other of the school’s courses (Clinical Therapeutics, Biological Systems, Community Pharmacy Management, and the Non-Prescription Drug Course). He also teaches a popular Freshman Seminar Course entitled, Medical Controversies and The Law. Among his publications, he has numerous articles on pharmacy law and clinical therapeutic issues and wrote a text he first published in 1997 entitled, A Guide To California Community Pharmacy Law. The book is presently in its ninth edition and was published in February 2017. He has published both a 2018 and 2019 Supplement to this textbook. In January 2016 he released a second textbook as the primary author entitled, Pharmacy Practice And Tort Law (secondary author, Jim Pinder, M.B.A, J.D. and third author Mark Berns, J.D.). He is presently working on a third textbook entitled, A Guide To California Hospital Pharmacy Law that is planned to be published in February of 2020. Dr. Weissman has been honored by his students by being chosen one of the outstanding teachers of the year four times during the last 17 years.
