IPPE 2nd Professional Year Activities & Dates

Level 2 Introductory Practice
Student Academic Level: 2nd Professional Year (P2) 

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 P1 Professional Role Observations 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.
