Experiential Education

is 30% of the Pharm.D. curriculum and is divided into two components, Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience (IPPE) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE).  The Experiential Education Office is responsible for recruiting and maintaining rotation sites, assigning rotations to students, delivering orientations/training for students and preceptors, developing rotation sites to be suitable experiential “classrooms”, and providing guidance and support for students and preceptors during rotations. These non-paid pharmacy internships experiences are in true practice sites and are supervised by licensed pharmacists and, in some cases, in conjunction with other healthcare professionals such as physicians and nurses who are all passionate about teaching and mentoring students. In aggregate, the IPPE and APPE rotation sequence are designed and coordinated to develop and transform students into confident and competent pharmacists who will be able to deliver pharmaceutical care in a variety of settings to a diverse array of people.
