Mark Pinkerton, M.D.Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice
The previous twenty years, Dr. Pinkerton practiced as a Family Physician. Seventeen of those years where in a remote, rural Colorado town of Monte Vista. He founded Monte Vista Family Practice, P.C. that quickly built the reputation of compassionate care. In 2011, he relocated to Cedarville. He practiced three years at Cedarville Family Practice and one day a week at University Medical Services. During this time, he “caught a bug” to teach and pass the wisdom and knowledge of his past experiences to the next medical generations. He still practices one day a week at University Medical Services. Prior to medical school, he earned a master’s degree in Chemistry (biochemistry emphasis) and worked as a research assistant in molecular biology. In his role at the School of Pharmacy, he serves as the Coordinator of Clinical Integration to ensure the curriculum has the depth and breadth of clinical knowledge.

- Why Cedarville? I am more than grateful for the impact Cedarville University had on my life as student. If I can have a fraction of that impact in a student’s life that faculty have had in my life as a student, then I will know my time at Cedarville University has been well spent for God’s Kingdom.
