Regis University's mission is to educate men and women to take leadership roles and to make a positive impact in a changing society. We seek to provide value-centered education, as well as to strengthen commitment to community service. We encourage the development of the skills and leadership abilities necessary for distinguished professional work and contributions to the improvement and transformation of society. We examine and attempt to answer the question: "How ought we to live?"? The Doctor of Pharmacy Curriculum at Regis University uniquely combines a highly integrated course curriculum with Team-Based Learning (TBL) in a Jesuit learning environment. The curricular content integrates biological, pharmaceutical, and clinical sciences so that basic biological and pharmaceutical concepts are discussed in the context of disease management. Simultaneous to on-campus curricular content, students will take part in an experiential component where they will work directly with patients in a variety of healthcare settings. Presenting the course curriculum in this manner encourages students to learn course concepts, and better understand how biological, pharmaceutical, and clinical sciences fit together. ? Located in northwest Denver, Colorado, Regis University is uniquely situated to offer students activities outside of the classroom. Our beautiful campus is within 15 minutes of the breathtaking Rocky Mountain foothills and bustling downtown Denver. Regis offers students the personal attention of a small, private university and the cultural and recreational possibilities of one of the most exciting cities in the world. With over 300 days of sunshine, Colorado is a great place to live. http://www.regis.edu/pharmacy
