In the North American-Trained PharmD (NTPD) Program, practice competency is determined by the mastery of outcomes. Many NTPD students have already achieved the outcomes for one or more advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE) rotations during their pharmacy careers. Therefore, the Distance Degrees and Programs (DDP) Credit-by-Challenge Subcommittee developed a credit-by-challenge portfolio process to grant academic credit for one or more APPE rotations based on the NTPD student’s work experience.
NTPD students may submit a credit-by-challenge portfolio through the abbreviated or full portfolio credit-by-challenge format once the NTPD student completes an advising call. Students can learn more about each format in the tabs below.
Manual and Policies – The DDP Office recommends all NTPD students read through the documents linked below to learn more about the credit-by-challenge process, which provides more information about the review process, submission deadlines and formatting.
