PaCE Lab

Patient-Centered Care Experience Laborarty utilizes a near-peer learning model and pairs first, second, and third-year pharmacy students into concurrent weekly lab sessions with intermittent experiential education. This approach allows students to learn from each other in a team-based atmosphere that mirrors a tiered practice setting.

 

CSL

Community Service Learning, an entrepreneurial component of PaCE, is the first of its kind. Under the supervision of a faculty mentor, students collaborate with a non-profit community partner for six semesters. They conduct a needs assessment, develop a health-based business plan to serve that population, implement their ideas, and then report back on outcomes.

 

LEEP

Longitudinal Experiential Education in Pharmacy, a component of experiential education, immerses students in pharmacy practice from day one. Instead of dedicated summer hours, a portion of required practice hours happen during the academic year and are initiated by the student with dedicated preceptors.
