  • Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences Curriculum (IPPE)

    The IPPE program spans the first through third years of the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum and is composed of a variety of exposures including community practice, health system practice, ambulatory care, immunization delivery, indigent care, disaster preparedness, and advocacy. Although the majority of IPPEs incorporate direct patient care with opportunities for interprofessional interaction, some simulated practice (e.g. standardized patient program) is included to ensure development and mastery of patient care skills and knowledge.
