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. Download instructions on how to self enroll.

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.

A description of available service learning sites will be available in the summer.
