PHAR 515 Pharmacy Skills II-A
The Professional Activities Lab curriculum is a team-taught, 6-semester, 10-credit hour laboratory sequence designed to prepare students to perform Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs) for pharmacy practice prior to milestone examinations and experiential rotations. Lab activities will focus on students' exposure to, hands-on-practice of, and competency of a variety of pharmacy-specific skills. The P1 year will focus on community pharmacy related skills and activities, the P2 year will focus on institutional pharmacy skills, and the P3 year will focus on advanced pharmacy practice skills across multiple settings. As students progress through the 6-semester sequence, they will be expected to increasingly combine physical assessment, communication, patient counseling, and drug information skills, along with applying pharmacotherapy knowledge towards patient-care related activities. A variety of teaching and assessment modalities will be used including but not limited to podcasts, online quizzes, active-learning games, role playing, standardized patients, high-fidelity simulator mannequins, online modules, and traditional exams. Prerequisite: Students must have first year professional standing in the School of Pharmacy. Students must have successfully completed PHAR 510 and PHAR 512; and current enrollment or successful completion of PHAR 517 and PHPR 661.
