Paul Djuricich, R.Ph., Pharm.D.
Paul Djuricich was born and raised in Evanston, Illinois. He attended Loyola University, Chicago and earned a bachelor’s degree in biology. Immediately afterward, he proceeded on to Purdue University, where he earned his doctorate in pharmacy (Pharm.D.). Right after graduation, Paul went to work for Osco Pharmacy, where he was involved in the diabetes care program and immunizations. He also served as preceptor for Purdue University School of Pharmacy students who were in their last year of rotations. After a few years there, he was recruited for the position of Pharmacist in Charge at Bioscrip Pharmacy (formerly StatScript). Paul is thrilled to work in an environment that is vastly different than the traditional retail pharmacy setting. Throughout his time there, he has felt that he’s been able to help several patients through tough times. Recently, Paul has become active with TPAN by providing presentations and talking to groups about their HIV treatment. In his spare time, Paul enjoys torturing himself with marathons and triathlons.
