The experiential training courses in the NTPD Program are referred to as Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs). All NTPD students must complete six APPEs in the following practice areas:
- Drug Information
- Ambulatory Care
- Hospital Clinical
- First Elective
- Second Elective
- Third Elective
The APPEs can be accomplished by performing live rotations, or by a combination of live rotations and challenging APPEs for academic credit. NTPD students must perform two live rotations. Students cannot challenge more than four APPEs.
Advising Call: Students will contact the DDP office upon admission into the NTPD Program to schedule an advising call. This call is an individual advising session, and at the end of the call, students will receive a customized plan identifying which APPEs the student is eligible to challenge and the APPEs the student is to complete as a rotation.
