PHRM 503 - IPPE III Either Health System or Community


Prerequisites, PHRM 502 , PHRM 512 PHRM 523L PHRM 535 PHRM 537 PHRM 632 PHRM 672 . This required course is the next in the series of experiential education courses to provide for the review, synthesis and application of what has been learned in the CUSP didactic portion of the curriculum to date. This introductory experience focuses upon on the role of the pharmacist/student pharmacist intern in a setting located in the local community - either a community pharmacy or a health-system (e.g., hospital) setting. The experience is designed to allow students to observe the delivery of care for patients in this setting and the management of the practice. These experiences intend to advance understanding of the role and responsibility of the pharmacist, contributors to the challenges to care delivery including care transition as patients move from home to a stay in an acute care facility and back; working with other healthcare professionals and gaining experience being accessible to a varied patient population(s) in the community. Students will gain experience determining resources available to support patient education and use of medications. This course will prepare students for advanced experiential coursework. P/NP. (Offered every year.) 3 credits
