Student Academic Level: P-1 (1st Professional Year)
The purpose of this entry level introductory practice experience is to enhance student awareness of the role of pharmacists practicing in various pharmacy practice settings. Students maintain documentation of exercises completed and validation of preceptor review; maintain a task-oriented portfolio; attend facilitated meetings on campus; give a presentation; and prepare a project.
PROS (Professional Role Observations) is a one week experience for P1 students in the fall. PROS covers 64 hours over a two week period. Students change practice sites for the second week (i.e. students at a community site will change to a hospital site). Rotations are generally four days—eight hours per day but may be modified to alternative schedules best conducive to learning at a particular site.

Students in their first professional year are enrolled in a service learning course during the spring semester. Students participate in the designated service learning project during a three-week time span in which they have no curricular obligations.
