Pharmacists are active problem solvers. Yet most pharmacy schools ask students to passively absorb lectures. Who could blame students for counting ceiling tiles? Happily, students of Regis University’s Doctor of Pharmacy program don’t have that problem.
Our panacea? Team Based Learning, or TBL. It’s anything but passive. In fact, it’s more like a real-world pharmaceutical setting than it is a classroom.
This approach will see you rolling up your proverbial sleeves to take part in labs and patient simulations. You’ll work with five or six other people as part of a team, actively collaborating to apply knowledge and solve problems. You’ll be using pharmaceutical concepts in real-life problem solving situations, so guess where that leaves you when you graduate?
To help you get a feel for the pharmacy world, we’re inviting you to our Regis Pharmacy Experience, a half-day event on campus where you’ll learn all about our PharmD program, as well as some helpful tips for navigating our application and interview process.
Regis Pharmacy Experience
Wednesday, June 26 | 3-6:15 p.m.
Northwest Denver Campus
Peter Claver Hall, 309
We’re also pleased to announce our new Dean of Pharmacy, Samit Shah, Ph.D., R.Ph, MBA. Shah comes from the Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in California, where he was the associate dean of Academic Affairs for three years. In 2014, he was named as the Sidney J. Weinberg professor, an endowed professorship funded through a $2.5 million gift by KGI co-founder and board chair emeritus Sidney J. Weinberg, Jr.
Shah was immediately attracted to the Regis PharmD program, saying “They are turning out socially conscious pharmacists, and doing so with the underserved in mind. This was deep in the culture and values of everyone I met. It was to the point where I was able to say, ‘This is where I want to be.’”
Join us on June 26, and come see if this is where you want to be, too.
