Department of Pharmacy Practice and Pharmacy Administration
Education is at the heart of our mission! Learning has no boundaries! The Department of Pharmacy Practice and Pharmacy Administration offers a wide variety of opportunities to students and post-graduate trainees to broaden their experiences and ultimately enhance their practice of pharmacy. Interprofessional medical missions expose students to the practice of pharmacy in underserved communities outside the United States. Postgraduate training in clinical residencies and industry fellowships, with an emphasis on education, provides recent pharmacy graduates, many of whom have been PCP alumni, with the training necessary to enter highly competitive fields. Our Teaching and Learning Curriculum (a.k.a. Teaching Certificate Program) furthers our mission to educate the next generation of pharmacists while highlighting some of the remarkable talent within the Department. These programs will continue to develop professionals and leaders through a diverse array of training experiences.
Fundraising Initiatives Below:
Global Medical Outreach Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience:
Learners participating in global medical outreach APPEs are responsible for their travel expenses which often limits the opportunity for many students. Giving Tuesday funds will expand opportunities for all students and support learner/preceptor teams with expenses, such as travel, lodging, and food, as well as funds to purchase medication and clinic supplies.
Postgraduate Educational and Leadership Development:
Each year the PCP Teaching and Learning Curriculum (TLC) Program provides interactive training and mentorship for 30-40 pharmacy residents and fellows from programs across the region as they develop their teaching skills in the classroom and as experiential preceptors. This TLC Program supports the pharmacist’s vow “to prepare the next generation of pharmacists” by developing trainees’ skills to effectively share their knowledge, skills, experiences, and values.
