When does youR (sorry for the typo in the title!!) school start its IPPEs??
the summer after the first year of school.
At the first semester of school which I think is good.
Our class for Early Pharmacy Practice Experiences (I assume that IPPE is the same thing) occurs in the second semester of the first year. However, we only get one site visit in that class, which is kinda disappointing. I got accepted to Wingate over a year ago and the nice thing about their program was the breadth of their early practice program.
Fixed the title.
We have IPPE's 1st and 2nd semester and then IV rotation (IPPE) sometime during 2nd year (between summer after 1st year and summer before 3rd year.)
LIU does starts in the first year. They go once a week to a site on Thursday afternoons.
is it bad if your school does not do any rotations the first semester and waits til the second semester or second year?? Will this hurt you in the long run?
yes- the first two years are IPPEs
3rd year= SALT (service and learning together)
4th = advanced practice pharmacy experience (APPEs)
Since the curriculum at my school has just the "basics" the first year like A & P, micro/immuno, biochem, etc. and therapeutics doesn't start until the second year, they start IPPE after the second year. If you don't know anything about the therapeutics surrounding at least some classes of drugs, how are you supposed to see if you can apply the knowledge in a real world situation?
I don't think it will hurt in the long run, but it depends on when a school starts teaching therapeutics.
