Our Experiential Education Program
A major component of the PharmD curriculum (approximately 30 percent) is comprised of experiential education. This practical experience gained in a variety of pharmacy settings, often called rotations, is the bridge between the classroom and the pharmacy practice environment. Contemporary pharmacy curriculums have two levels of experiential education incorporated over the course of the program: Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE).
