The Denver Post praised Regis’ pharmacy school and its nationally renowned track record of student success in an article published Nov. 19. 

Staff writer Elizabeth Hernandez highlighted the program’s hands-on, team-based learning model, which has led to Regis students passing pharmacy licensure exams at one of the highest rates in the nation. 

“In 2018, the small, private Jesuit college in Denver ranked seventh out of more than 130 pharmacy schools in the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination pass rate,” Hernandez wrote. “Pharmacy students at Regis had a 99% pass rate, higher than the 89% national average.”

The Post touted Regis students’ ability to join physicians on frequent rounds and to spend their fourth program year practicing their skills in real-world clinical rotations. Faculty members were also highlighted for their active work in hospitals throughout Colorado. 

“We are preparing pharmacy students for the future practice of pharmacy in 2064,” Samit Shah, dean of the Regis pharmacy school, said. “The world is going to be different in 10, 20 years. We prepare our students to give them the maximum number of opportunities for success.”
