The 2013 graduating class of Palm Beach Atlantic University’s Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy achieved the highest passing rate in the state on the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination for the second time in the school’s history.
The PBA pharmacy students achieved a 95.44 percent pass rate. Students in the 2011 graduating class were the first to exceed the pass rate of their peers at other Florida pharmacy schools.
“Praise God for His faithfulness to the Gregory School of Pharmacy; we try to honor Him and bring glory to His name in all that we do,” said Dr. Mary Ferrill, the school’s dean. “Thank God for the hard work and dedication of our administration, faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends who have helped to make the Gregory School of Pharmacy a success.”
Palm Beach Atlantic’s Lloyd L. Gregory School of Pharmacy was established in 2000 and welcomed its first class of 57 students in 2001. The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) Board of Directors granted full accreditation to the School of Pharmacy in June 2005, the same year the school graduated its first class. Named for Lloyd L. Gregory, patriarch of the Gregory family, the Gregory School of Pharmacy offers a strong academic foundation supported by state-of-the-art technology, interactive teaching and coursework that seamlessly integrates science into patient care applications.
