Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) – 4 weeks

The Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) are 4-week rotations offered in the summer after the first and second professional years. After their first year in the professional program, pharmacy students gain practice experience in community settings; after the second year, they have rotations in the hospital setting. Through IPPEs, students begin to practice skills related to the profession and they experience the responsibilities of practitioners working in these settings.  The IPPEs complement the didactic curriculum and involve a variety of experiences including shadowing pharmacists, participating in the drug delivery process, observing the use of automation technology in pharmacy practice, and participating in community health education activities.  The IPPE experiences additionally prepare students for the final stages of the curriculum.

Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) – 5 weeks

The Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) are 5-week rotations offered throughout the academic year to prepare students in their fourth professional year of the curriculum for entry into pharmacy practice.  These advanced practice experiences may be completed in a variety of practice settings, including community, hospital, clinical practice, industry, and ambulatory care.  The development of a syllabus and learning objectives congruent with the type of practice setting for the rotation are strongly encouraged.  The following links contain useful information for the APPE preceptor.

After successful completion of a minimum of 1440 practice hours in the APPE rotations, students may sit for the NAPLEX and Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination and apply to the New Jersey Board of Pharmacy for pharmacist licensure.
