The entire P-4 year is comprised of APPE. Students will complete seven experiences, each lasting five weeks. There are four "Core" or required experiences (Community Pharmacy, Hospital Pharmacy, Ambulatory Care Pharmacy and Acute Care/General Medicine Pharmacy). Additionally, students complete three elective rotations that take place in any of numerous pharmacy specialized practices. A computerized matching process is used to place students with preceptors and practice sites.

The final element of the APPE program is the "Capstone" rotation during which students design and complete a project in cooperation with a preceptor and under the guidance of the Capstone Coordinator who is an SIUE School of Pharmacy faculty member. Through the development and completion of scholarly projects, students integrate and apply content and skills acquired over the pharmacy curriculum subsequently documenting the achievement of educational outcomes and professional competencies. Students conduct their projects in practice environments that most interest them. This project requires a minimum of 120 hours non-concurrent with other APPE rotations.
