PPRAG 1591: Introduction to Pharmacy Practice

Credits 1.0

This course will help students develop a foundation for future pharmacy practice. Based on class interest, students will explore various pharmacy career options through pharmacist interviews, guest speakers, and completion of the APhA Career Pathways Assessment. Students will begin to develop professional communication skills as they interview two pharmacists and one patient for a final paper, and use self-reflection to summarize the interview responses in a personal narrative. Students will also be provided with foundational knowledge in medical terminology, with two exams focusing solely on medical terminology. The final paper will serve as the final assessment of learning and integration.
