Pharmacy

Be a trusted healer in your community. Be a successful professional. Be a pharmacist. As a pharmacist, your power is in everyday conversations. Whether you’re responsible for bedside treatment of patients in the emergency room or hospital, making sure the dosage of the medications being prescribed to children is safe or communicating with pet owners about how medications should be administered to their animals, you're answering vital questions.

Whatever a patient needs, your ability to answer them improves not only their individual health outcomes but the long-term health of every other community they interact with. And when you earn your Doctor of Pharmacy degree from Regis University, you will be uniquely qualified to be the professional your patients need. With the support of small classes, faculty mentors invested in preparing competent, compassionate pharmacists and a Team-Based Learning approach, you will perfect both the practical skills and the human touch you need to positively influence lives through medicine.

    Faculty Spotlight

    Dr. Katie Tuck

    Katie Tuck, Pharm.D. is a clinical psychiatric pharmacist who teaches mental health topics in the School of Pharmacy. She is board certified in psychiatric pharmacy and in pharmacotherapy. She is particularly interested in substance use disorders, trauma and stressor-related disorders, and disparities in mental health care. She practices as a clinical psychiatric pharmacist at West Pines Behavioral Health, where she also precepts pharmacy students. Her goal as an educator is to encourage students to be compassionate as well as competent. She hopes to prepare students to be empathetic and passionate in their care for patients by modeling this care and by demonstrating care of the whole patient. She believes that student exposure to complex factors such as race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status and religion is crucial to understanding a person’s health status and formulating a treatment plan. Tuck is passionate about caring for marginalized populations and hopes to pass this passion to the future generations of pharmacists.
