This is the fourth year of the PharmD program and it is dedicated entirely to advance pharmacy practice experience (clerkships). In addition, the successful completion of a research project is a requirement for graduation.

Professional Year 4

Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE)

The APPE portion of the curriculum comprises more than 25% of the curricular length.  All students are required to take a minimum of 10 APPEs.  Each rotation is a minimum of 4 weeks in duration.  Six of the 10 APPE rotations must involve direct patient care and may occur in various clinical areas (e.g., medicine, cardiology, infectious disease). One of the six must occur in an ambulatory care setting.  Two of the remaining APPE rotations must occur in community and institutional pharmacy practice settings. The final two APPE rotations may be taken in any rotation area.
