Experiential Education | School of Pharmacy


Experiential education is a critical part of the three-year PharmD program at Pacific University's School of Pharmacy.

We aim to connect students with high quality experiential rotations that develop practice-ready, compassionate, and innovative pharmacists prepared for future pharmacy careers.

Experiential education is split into two parts— students complete Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience components (IPPE 1, 2, 3 & 4) of the curriculum throughout their first and second school years. The third year is devoted entirely to on-site Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE).

Experiential education benefits both students and preceptors. Students gain practical skills and exposure to pharmacy practice settings. Preceptors serve as mentors and our high-quality students make experiential education a rewarding experience for everyone.

If you are interested in becoming a preceptor with our program, please contact one of the experiential program contacts.
