Experiential Programs

Experiential programs provide students with experiences in the field under the guidance of preceptor faculty. The experiences increase in duration and complexity as the student gains knowledge and skills, culminating with the final year of rotation experience.

Early Practice Experience (EPEs) expose students to entry-level pharmacy practice through working in a pharmacy practice site.  The Early Practice Experience requires 200 hours in either a community or a hospital pharmacy prior to the start of the P4 experiential year.

Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) occur in the context of required courses during the P1, P2 and P3 years.  The majority of IPPE hours are gained through the institutional IPPE (IPPE-I) and the Community IPPE (IPPE-C).

Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPEs) provide P4 students with first hand experience through rotation courses and professional practice experiences in regional sites throughout Texas.  Students accumulate internship hours required for Texas licensure through APPE coursework.
