FAMU pharmacy grads celebrate 100% passage



Seventy-three 2007 FAMU pharmacy graduates all passed the national licensure exam required to practice, beating the national pass rate of 97.23 percent and the state pass rate of 98.22 percent, FAMU president James Ammons announced.

FAMU's average score of 119.15 on the exam also exceeded the state average of 118.77 and the national average of 116.

"We are very proud of the students in the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences," said Ammons. "I applaud Dean Lewis and the faculty for doing an outstanding job in preparing our students. This is another example of how we have distinguished ourselves."

FAMU, the state's only historically black public university, is known for its pharmacy program. For years, it has been the largest producer of black pharmacists in the country.
