experiential Training

The experiential training curriculum begins within the didactic curriculum, where we provide introductory pharmacy practice experiences (IPPE). Students start with a 1-week session in 57357 at the beginning of the program.
Upon completion of the IPPE and online didactic curriculum, the experiential program continues with advanced pharmacy practice experiences (APPEs), in a variety of practice areas.

Elective APPE rotations may be selected from a variety of 57357 subspecialties, such as neurology, nutrition, infectious diseases, critical care, psychiatry and/ or other elective rotation choices such as pharmaceutical care projects, education, administration, industry and clinical research. All APPE rotations are completed on a full-time basis.

Didactic curriculum

This didactic curriculum, focuses on a combination of professional skills courses (e.g. Evidence-based Medicine, Interprofessional Education, Clinical Capstone, and others) and pharmacotherapy courses, which are the core of the didactic curriculum.  Pharmacotherapy courses address the pathophysiology, advanced pharmacotherapeutics, pharmacokinetics and professional skills development specific to the disease state.
Students fulfill the credit hours through live and online didactic courses. Online didactic courses are delivered in a format which requires one to two hours of “class time” per credit hours each week, plus one to two hours to complete assignments. Additional study time is student specific.
