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.
