Welcome to the Office of Experiential Programs at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. The Office of Experiential Education is responsible for the coordination and oversight of the pharmacy practice experience component of the curriculum. The experiential component is designed to integrate, apply, reinforce, and advance the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values developed through the other components of the curriculum.
During the first two years of the professional program, students will participate in Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs). Students will complete a 4-week Introductory Community experience during the summer following the first professional year and a 4-week Introductory Institutional experience during the summer following the second professional year.
During the final year of the professional program, students will participate in seven 6-week Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs). Of these seven experiences, four are required (Advanced Community, Advanced Institutional, Ambulatory Care, Acute General Medicine) and three are electives.
