Prerequisites, PHRM 555 , PHRM 558 , PHRM 561 , PHRM 579 , PHRM 584 , PHRM 691 , doctor of pharmacy major. This is a six-week advanced practice pharmacy experience (APPE) in an elective area of practice highly focused upon an experiential educator's area of expertise. The student pharmacist will participate in the day-to-day activities of the experiential educator to explore the student pharmacist's interest in the elective area. Further, this will allow the student pharmacist to develop an in-depth understanding of that area by engaging in activities that lend themselves to application of formed knowledge and skills and accomplishment of student learning outcomes. Elective experiences may include but are not limited to: specialty or focused internal medicine areas (i.e., infectious disease, cardiology, or endocrinology); pharmaceutical industry (i.e., drug development, medical communications, drug safety and pharmacovigilance, medical science liaison, regulatory affairs, clinical affairs, medical affairs); special population-focused (i.e., community pharmacy, specialty clinic, rehabilitation hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home-based consult services, assisted living facilities); state and national pharmacy organizations-based; academia; and research. The course content/experience will vary by experiential site and will be altered to accommodate a student pharmacist's previous experiences and/or highlight an experiential educator's area of expertise. Under the guidance of an experiential educator, student pharmacists will generally advance knowledge and skills applicable to providing direct patient-care or non-direct, patient care or other professional activities.
