Level 2 Introductory Practice

Student Academic Level: P-2 (2nd Professional Year)

Level 2 rotations are introductory pharmacy practice experiences in community, health system pharmacy, behavioral health, or long term care pharmacy. Options for participation in other practice settings are also offered. Students develop distribution and professional communication skills including patient counseling; interact with various patient populations; provide drug information; participate as a member of an interdisciplinary health care team; develop sterile preparation skills; manage a professional project and/or give an oral professional presentation to a small group. These rotations are intended to be more "hands on" than the entry level PROS program.

Students spend three full weeks (120 hours) at a practice site per rotation (one fall rotation and one spring rotation). Generally, students will work Monday through Friday, 8 hours per day. Preceptors may also utilize alternative schedules that are more conducive to learning at their practice site.
