Educational Outcomes for the Doctor of Pharmacy Program
The SIUE School of Pharmacy adopts the Educational Outcomes developed by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Center for the Advancement of Pharmaceutical Education (CAPE) as revised in 1998 and 2004. The competency statements and enabling objectives that guide the curriculum and co-curricular activities can be found in the link below:
From 2003 to 2008 the School of Pharmacy operated from a Master Plan for hiring of faculty and staff. In 2008-2009 a new strategic plan for the school was outlined with input from students, faculty, staff and the School of Pharmacy advisory board. Seven strategic initiatives were outlined. These appear in the link below. Task forces have been created and the task forces and appropriate committees have received charges from the strategic plan and developed action item worksheets. The strategic plan takes the School through 2014; however, the plan is revisited yearly to reassess the appropriateness of each initiative and how the task forces and committees are moving forward on the items.
