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.
