The professional curriculum is four (4) years in duration and consists of required and elective courses, as well as programmatic components. A total of 146 semester credit hours of professional coursework consisting of didactic, laboratory, and introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences is required.
To provide learners with a sense of relevance for the curriculum and to embed the principle of “does” (see one, do one, teach one), experiential components are threaded throughout all four years of the professional curriculum. During Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE), learners will provide various pharmacy services in a controlled environment and develop a patient’s perspective of the healthcare system. The complete integration of the curriculum will occur during the Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) in which learners will spend 40 hours per week in the defined practice settings and in elective sites as well.
