Early Experiential Learning - A Paradigm Shift

In 2007, the American Council on Pharmacy Education (ACPE) revised the requirements for experiential education in pharmacy schools.  The biggest change impacted early experiential education, where the standard for experiential education, before to the fourth year of the program, increased to approximately 5% of the total pharmacy curriculum.  For most programs, that translates to about 300 hours of rotation experience during the first 3 years of pharmacy school.  As a new school of pharmacy, CUWSOP has the unique opportunity to develop a curriculum and academic calendar model that it optimal for student learning and preceptor engagement.  The CUWSOP model incorporates dedicated blocks of time (1-2 weeks) for early student experiences which creates a method for student understanding of the role of the pharmacist in patient care very early in their pharmacy careers.
