Pharmacy experiential education offers students hands-on practical experience in numerous pharmacy disciplines. The experiential program is overseen by the Office of Experiential Education (OEE) and provides a continuum of required and elective pharmacy practice experiences that have been carefully coordinated with didactic coursework and co-curricular activities to be of appropriate scope, intensity, and duration to support specific pharmacy educational outcomes.
During the P1-P3 years, introductory pharmacy practice experiences are designed to progressively prepare students for advanced pharmacy practice experiences. The culmination of these experiences is to produce practice-ready graduates who have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of practitioners in order to advance healthcare and positively impact their patients' lives as part of an interprofessional team.
