IPPE 2nd Professional Year Activities & Dates

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 or patient care practices. Students will

  • 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 P-1 (1st professional year) PROS program.

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

Dates offered for the 2013 - 2014 Academic Year:

September 23 - October 11, 2013
February 24 - March 14, 2014
