PHAR 666 Integrated Sequence: Special Populations (5 credits)
Students will learn about applying didactic knowledge of the pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, pharmacotherapeutics, pharmaceutics, and pharmacogenomics to tailoring treatment to focused populations in an integrated, interdisciplinary course structure. Special populations will include Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Pediatrics, Geriatrics, and select Vulnerable Populations. Students will engage in various interactive and didactic teaching modalities to explore these concepts and use the knowledge gained to critically approach and solve patient care problems in an evidence-based manner. This course will integrate material from previous courses in a progressive manner and align with learning activities in the concurrent skills laboratory course.
PHAR 667 Integrated Sequence: Critical Care, Toxicology, Substance Abuse (5 credits)
Students will learn about the pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, pharmacotherapeutics, and pharmaceutics of critical care disorders, toxicology, and substance abuse in an integrated, interdisciplinary course structure. Students will engage in various interactive and didactic teaching modalities to explore these concepts and use the knowledge gained to critically approach and solve patient care problems in an evidence-based manner. This course will integrate material from previous courses in a progressive manner and align with learning activities in the concurrent skills laboratory course. The final portion of this course will serve as a capstone in which material from all previous IS courses will be integrated into a series of patient cases.
PHAR 633 Patient Care Laboratory VIII (3 credits)
During the last Patient Care Lab VIII, students will learn through a clinical symptom-based process integrating basic science courses, history, and physical findings through patient presentation and pharmacotherapeutics. The signs and symptoms topics will facilitate the transition of a student pharmacist as they prepare for clinical rotations.
PHAR 651 Pharmacy Law (2 credits)
Students will learn federal and state statutes, regulations, and policies that govern the practice of pharmacy, including the mitigation of prescription drug abuse and diversion. As law is best learned when applying it to specific situations and cases, students will engage in case discussions and problem-solving activities to apply law to current and future pharmacy practice problems.
PHAR 643 Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience (IPPE) VII (2 credits)
This course is composed of two related experiences – an introductory pharmacy practice rotation and seminar – and provides foundational activities that integrate knowledge and skills. Students will apply to professional practice the facts, information, and concepts gained in didactic coursework. Students will learn about the profession of pharmacy and the role pharmacists play in advancing pharmacy practice, as well as principles of professionalism, change management, interprofessional collaborative practice, law, and ethics. Students will engage in activities designed to facilitate career planning, continuous professional development, and the development of personal and professional leadership skills.
PHAR 601-611 Scholarly Pathways (.75 credits)
In this 8-quarter sequence, students will choose one of several topic areas to learn about over a two-year period. Students will engage in workshops regarding their topic and develop an individual learning plan to discover issues and problems within their chosen area. Students will have the option to complete a project related to their chosen area and present the results at the end of the sequence.
PHAR 700 Personal & Professional Development (0 credits)
Activities and experiences that are purposely developed and implemented to ensure an array of opportunities for students to document competency in the affective domain-related expectations of approaches to patient care and personal and professional development. Co-curricular activities complement and advance the learning that occurs within the formal didactic and experiential curriculum.
