Pharmacy Practice Experiences
Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) – 4 weeks
The Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) are 4-week rotations offered in the summer after the first and second professional years. After their first year in the professional program, pharmacy students gain practice experience in community settings; after the second year, they have rotations in the hospital setting. Through IPPEs, students begin to practice skills related to the profession and they experience the responsibilities of practitioners working in these settings. The IPPEs complement the didactic curriculum and involve a variety of experiences including shadowing pharmacists, participating in the drug delivery process, observing the use of automation technology in pharmacy practice, and participating in community health education activities. The IPPE experiences additionally prepare students for the final stages of the curriculum.
Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs)
The Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) are 5-week rotations for students in their final professional year prior to entry into pharmacy practice. These experiences may be completed in a variety of practice settings, including community, hospital, clinical practice, industry, and ambulatory care.
