The Office of Experiential Education will play an important role during your time here as we guide you through the rotation process during your P2 and P3 years. We’ve put together a brief presentation to introduce you to our office and to give you an overview of what to expect in your experiential rotations. In order to access the presentation, you will need to self-enroll in the Wor/Man Introduction to Experiential Education course on Blackboard. Instructions on how to self-enroll in the course are can be found here.

The presentation, titled Intro to Experiential Education 2017, will be located under the Course Documents section. Viewing of this presentation is mandatory. Student views of the presentation will be tracked through Blackboard by the Office of Experiential Education.

As a follow-up to the presentation, the Office of Experiential Education will be holding a Q&A session on Wednesday, September 6, from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Locations will be announced at a later date. The Office of Experiential Education team will be on hand to provide additional information on your rotations as well as answer any questions you may have. Your attendance at this event is mandatory. Therefore, please make sure you review the presentation prior to the Q&A session.

During the fall semester, all incoming pharmacy students enroll in Service and Care in the Community, a course based on an educational method in which the participants are involved in service work and active learning. This course is based on the conviction that providing service and care is critically important for anyone who aspires to become a member of a healthcare profession.

Students are required to provide two hours of service each week for ten weeks during the fall semester.

Please click here or a list of available Service-Learning sites and descriptions of each as well as an online selection form. You should review this list and choose the top sites where you would most like to do your service work. After reviewing the list you will proceed to the online selection form and indicate your top choices. We will do our best to match you with one of your top choices, but we cannot guarantee that you will be matched to one of them.

Preference will be given based on when you enter your preferences.
