Experiential Learning

The Office of Experiential Programs serves as the liaison between the School of Pharmacy and the student and faculty preceptors. The function of the office is to recruit and maintain practice site and preceptor relationships, make student assignments to practice sites and preceptors and to support faculty members and students throughout the experiential education process.

The office coordinates all introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences (IPPE/APPE) for students on both the Kansas City and Columbia campuses. The IPPE and APPE experiences account for approximately 30 percent of the professional curriculum and provide academic credit as well as internship hours toward pharmacist licensure.
