Experiential Learning Office

Experiential Learning (EL) is a core component of the PharmD program at the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition.

Experiential Learning (EL) allows students to learn through action.

Through real-world practice experience, students have opportunities to reinforce, apply, and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required of contemporary pharmacy practice in a variety of settings.

The EL Office organizes and oversees all EL rotations in the PharmD program as well as some Interprofessional Education (IPE) experiences. Whether a 3-hour immersion in Year 1 or an 8-week rotation in Year 4, each EL placement is designed to assess competencies necessary to enter pharmacy practice.

Important update for preceptors

April 20, 2023: The EL Team is very pleased to announce the roll out of two new initiatives:

  1. The USask PharmD EL Assessment Framework and Evaluation Strategy, including a new Midpoint and Final Evaluation Form for all 4- and 8-week rotations
  2. The USask PharmD EL Preceptor Training and Development Program, an online module-based training platform

Please ensure you have reviewed this information prior to your first placement. Questions about the new initiatives can be directed to taylor.raiche@usask.ca.
