A year ago, the KU School of Pharmacy was closing out one of its most challenging years on record. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we pivoted successfully, and our world-class education continued remotely. It wasn’t easy, but our faculty and students adapted in remarkable fashion. They came back to campus for portions of the spring semester and completed courses, barely skipping a beat. Despite difficult circumstances, the Class of 2021 had a 90% first-time pass rate for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination compared to a national rate of 85%.
