Course Description

In this early exposure, learners will acquire a knowledge base of community pharmacy practice. Learners will begin to gain insight and develop a sense of community involvement in pharmacy practice by shadowing and applying basic pharmacy care. Through observation and participation, learners will explore the various facets of community pharmacy practice by integrating communication skills and relating didactic instruction to civic involvement, humanistic care of patients, and social awareness of unmet medical needs. This may include, but is not limited to: companionship; patient care; medication-related services; screening for medical problems; dispensing pharmaceuticals; medication counseling; purchasing; inventory control; and varying management styles. Learners will gain insight into self and professional goals through reflection and continued development of professional portfolios. An on-campus orientation will be required for all learners prior to starting their IPPEs. Learners will give presentations at the end of the semester.
