Experiential Education

The experiential curriculum is designed to provide students with the confidence, knowledge, skills, and attitude required to function as competent and professional pharmacy practitioners.

The experiential curriculum is divided into three parts of sequentially increasing levels of sophistication in competencies and outcomes expectations – Early Pharmacy Practice Experience (EPPE), Core Pharmacy Practice Experience (CPPE), and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE). Both EPPE and CPPE comprise the Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences for ACP.

Course syllabi can be found in our manuals located under Forms and Manuals. The syllabi provide preceptors and students with consistent course goals, objectives, and activities while allowing for preceptor and practice site flexibility.
