Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs)

Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE)
Students are expected to engage in IPPEs in the areas of community pharmacy, institutional healthsystem pharmacy, health-related service learning, and simulated activities during the first three years of
the pharmacy curriculum. These experiences are intended to serve as a bridge between didactic courses
and fourth-year Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE). Students must complete 300 IPPE
hours by the end of the Winter Quarter of the P-3 year in order to progress to fourth-year APPEs.
