Year 4

The Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) in Year 4 is a 36 week program consisting of a week-long Transition to APPE course prior to placements and seven rotation blocks that are five weeks each in length. These rotations occur over 12 months, starting in May and finishing in May the following year. Students are required to complete a minimum of five direct patient care rotations (25 weeks) in a variety of practice settings such as institutional practice, community practice and ambulatory care practice. There are two elective rotations of five weeks each that can be direct patient care or non-direct patient care placements.
