The Future of Pharmacy Education Regis University School of Pharmacy is nationally recognized as a leader in active learning pharmacy education. Combining Team-Based Learning (TBL), laboratory skills, patient simulation and experiential education, students participate in active learning in all four years of the pharmacy curriculum. Team-Based Learning (TBL) is an active learning teaching model used as the primary teaching method at Regis University School of Pharmacy. Unlike traditional teaching methods in which information is taught through a lecture format, TBL teaches pharmacy through a team-based active learning approach. The primary classroom experience is focused on the real-life application of course content and concepts through active learning. Here’s how it works: Each semester, students are divided into teams of five to seven students. This team works together in all TBL courses for the semester. Prior to class, study material is assigned to students for independent review. Students are held accountable both individually and as a team through readiness assessments and tests over the respective materials. During class, faculty educate and facilitate learning through relevant applications and activities in which team members apply their gained knowledge, reinforcing the information, providing various perspectives, and serving as a platform for collaboration and active learning. Critical thinking, problem solving, communication, and teamwork skills are developed through the TBL approach and active student engagement is increased. Regis University School of Pharmacy’s integrated TBL teaching method has been recognized for being both innovative and groundbreaking. Regis University is the only Doctor of Pharmacy school in the country to consistently place both clinical and science faculty together in the classroom to emphasize the relationship of biological and pharmaceutical sciences as it relates and impacts disease state management and patient care. Additionally, classroom knowledge is put into practice in our state of the art simulation and skills labs. Concurrent to on-campus learning, students take part in experiential education working directly with patients in a variety of health care settings to apply knowledge and skills gained in the classroom to direct patient care.
