Experiential Education Program

Pharmacists educate patients, understand their needs, and forge relationships with patients and families that often last a lifetime. Students at the College of Pharmacy receive outstanding classroom experiences from respected and accomplished faculty; through rotations, our students receive hands-on, practical experience, have opportunities to hone their skills, and are introduced to a wide variety of career opportunities.

The Experiential Program provides approximately one-third of a student’s total pharmacy education, and is the backbone of the Doctor of Pharmacy program. Preceptors encourage critical thinking to solve problems and not only facilitate a student’s knowledge base, but also his or her ability to provide excellence in patient care. Participating as a preceptor demonstrates commitment to the profession and its growth. Additionally, it impacts those individuals who will be the profession’s future practitioners and leaders.​

The fundamental goal of the Experiential Program is to provide students with the structured environment that they need to develop their professional judgment, technical skills and practice skills.
