Goal: To prepare every PharmD student for entry-level interprofessional collaborative practice upon graduation.
The School of Pharmacy’s Interprofessional Practice and Education (IPE) Office is responsible for the development, implementation, and continuous quality improvement of a longitudinal IPE program embedded in the required Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) curriculum. In the didactic component (first three-years) of the curriculum, students complete a mix of teamwork-related learning activities uniprofessionally (to prepare for interprofessional learning) and interprofessionally with students from other healthcare professions. These activities include but are not limited to classroom instruction, simulation, and co-curricular experiences. Direct observation of collaborative practice behaviors are completed during required advanced pharmacy practice experiences (APPE) rotations. Through completion of the IPE program, PharmD students will learn what it means to be a pharmacist while simultaneously learning what it means to be a member of an interprofessional health team. Upon graduation, students will be prepared for entry-level interprofessional collaborative practice.
