The Department of Pharmacy Practice in the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences provides the basic and advanced clinical practice coursework and practical skills training components of the doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) curriculum. The department also encourages and supports pharmacy practice-related research and scholarship.
Department faculty and coursework provide training in the applied knowledge and skills necessary to understand and competently practice as pharmacists in contemporary and developing translational, innovative healthcare settings. Emphasis is placed on both individual and team-based learning, interprofessional collaboration and the appropriate application of evidence-based information, technology and acquired clinical knowledge and skills to deliver the highest quality patient care.
The coursework and training provided by the department is closely aligned and coordinated
with the pharmacy practice experiences structured within the doctor of pharmacy curriculum. The alignment between the pharmacy
practice coursework and the practice experiences is planned to assure the successive
reinforcement of core clinical practice knowledge and skills through direct clinical
care delivery opportunities.
