Experiential Education at The University of Toledo College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
Experiential Education in the Doctor of Pharmacy program consists of Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs), as required by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the national agency for the accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy and providers of continuing pharmacy education.
Students begin IPPEs during the first year in the professional division (P1 year) and continue IPPEs through the second and third years of the professional division (P2 and P3 years). APPEs are completed throughout the final year of the PharmD curriculum (P4 year) and build upon the information and skills learned throughout the P1through P3 years.
