The Professional Experience Program (PEP) provides training in practice settings. The experiential program provides approximately 30% of the College's curriculum. True to our mission to improve the health and quality of life of residents in Northeast Tennessee and rural Appalachia, the majority of practice sites are within the region. However, students may request placement at practice sites outside the region. Additionally, rotations are offered abroad.
Experiential education provides exposure to and active participation in all pharmacy practice settings. It provides students an opportunity to learn pharmacy practice skills as well as professional work habits. Preceptors guide students in the application of knowledge learned in the classroom. Experiential education begins in the first year and continues throughout the professional program.
Please contact the Office of Experiential Education if you have any questions about the Professional Experience Program.
