I'm wondering how relevant/important labs are as part of curriculum. I'm trying to decide between a 3-year and 4-year program in my state, and noticed that the condensed program had only 1 lab as part of the curriculum (pharmaceutics block). In contrast, the traditional program had weekly labs throughout the first and second year (pharmaceutics and pharmacy practice courses). Will this negatively impact the education received by students at the 3-year school? For someone pursuing a residency after graduation, will this (or any other) differences negatively affect the chance of securing a PGY1 residency? Thanks for any advice/insight!
