获得真实世界的药房经验

体验式教育日历

非学术的要求

Prior to APPEs, students must have successfully completed their IPPE requirements. 

Prior to IPPEs and APPEs, students must have the following:

  • 个人免疫记录副本, which is on file at the College (in the event a site requests to see them). 
  • 最近体检的证明, 在轮换开始前的学年结束前的特定时间框架内完成(时间框架将在学年的适当时间通知学生).) 
  • 结核病筛查测试(PPD皮肤测试或IGRA血液测试)-学生必须提供显示结核病皮肤或血液测试阴性结果的医疗文件, 或者检查结果呈阳性后的胸部x光报告. 筛选必须在轮转开始前的学年结束前的特定时间框架内完成(时间框架将在学年期间通知学生)。.

  • 季节性流感(流感)疫苗

Some clinical sites may have their own requirements as well, 包括犯罪背景调查, a drug screen, 或者抗体滴度(实验室血液测试), 这是豁免的证据, as opposed to providing proof of having received the vaccine), etc. 

具体要求, if any, would be noted in the rotation site’s record within the College’s database, 并由体验教育的工作人员在轮岗前通过电子邮件通知合适的学生. 

举办体验式教育轮转的机构可能会因为无法提供适当的健康许可而拒绝学生参加体验式项目, which could result in delayed graduation or in the inability to graduate from the program.

背景调查通知

被判犯有重罪或轻罪的个人可能会被拒绝获得卫生专业人员的认证或执照. 有关在某一特定司法管辖区获得许可资格的信息可从该司法管辖区的适当认证机构获得. 

轮换地点可能会因为重罪或轻罪定罪而拒绝学生参加体验项目, 未通过药检, 或无法提供适当的健康证明, which would result in delayed graduation or in the inability to graduate from the program. 

因为举办体验式教育的机构可能需要犯罪背景调查才能允许学生进入他们的机构, the College will conduct background checks on all students entering experiential programs, using the Health and Human Services/Office of Inspector General (HHS OIG) database. 

卫生与公众服务部监察长背景调查网站的目标是查明被排除在联邦资助的医疗保健计划之外的个人和企业. This includes individuals convicted of fraud related to federal programs, patient abuse, licensing board actions and default on health education assistance loans. 

如果一个学生通过使用这个数据库被识别, the matter is referred to a committee appointed by the Department of Pharmacy Practice for action.

倾听学生的心声

"The diversity of experience in rotating through the different areas of pharmacy (compounding, counseling, rounds, etc.) was a fantastic way of applying all the knowledge we have acquired thus far. 通过协助研究和实施治疗方案来直接影响患者护理的机会是非常有益的. This was by far the best rotation I have participated in thus far....这种轮换表明,对我来说,在其他工作环境中寻求经验是至关重要的,这样我才能找到最适合我的药房利基.” – IPPE student, summer following P2 year, regional medical center


“对于任何渴望在现实世界中获得领导经验和接触药房高级管理职位日常活动的学生, 同时还能获得临床经验, 没有什么可以代替这种轮换. 管理经验的融合, clinical and community pharmacy into a single rotation was invaluable ... 这使学生能够自由地开发自己的解决方案,以解决药房世界的合法问题, under the guidance of a preceptor who is an expert manager.-大学家乡药房P4年级APPE学生


“绝对身临其境的轮岗将为您提供每天应用临床知识的机会. 这一切都是在向非常有成就的医生和药剂师学习的同时完成的. 因此,它向我强调,作为一名药剂师,我必须真正理解并接受伴随正确咨询患者药物的巨大责任. 这不是简单的在盒子里打个勾. 缺乏适当的咨询会导致去急诊室, hospital stays, 不断恶化的健康和, in the worst cases, disability or death.” – APPE student in P4 year, internal medicine at suburban health care system


“这是一个具有挑战性但非常有益的轮岗. 在轮岗期间,最有影响力的学习经历之一是让自己沉浸在抗菌药物管理团队中, 特别是在大流行期间. I would brush up on the most up-to-date guidelines for various disease states, 我会和我的导师和团队讨论这个问题吗. 根据指南中的信息, 我能够就如何治疗病人和病人预期的治疗时间提出建议.-郊区医疗中心P4年级的APPE学生


“In this rotation, I experienced a unique and interesting field of the 制药行业, 这是监管事务. 我在全球标签公司工作. They are dealing with a lot of the legal framework to support the drug approval process. 这对我来说很有意义,因为我不仅可以与我的团队交流我的发现,还可以与其他国家的人交流,这将影响未来产品在国外市场的发布.-制药行业P4年级APPE学生
