Andrew Garcia, PharmD

Class of 2022

Andrew received his BS in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Arizona, then earned his PharmD at the University of Arizona College of Pharmacy. After graduating, he worked as a pharmacist for both Walgreens and the healthcare technology company, SinfoniaRx. Andrew was inspired to return to medicine by his wife, Zoey (a physician), and his own experiences working with patients at different practice sites across southern Arizona during his years leading up to medical school.

“I chose GW because of its unique location at the heart of the health policy landscape in Washington, DC. GW is unparalleled in the opportunities [it provides] for students to participate at institutions and regional events that affect healthcare nationwide. Since coming here, I have had incredible support from my mentors at GW. This has solidified my belief that there is no better place than GW to foster my medical training. I am proud to be a member of the SMHS medical community and look forward to giving back to GW in my future career!”
