An innovative first professional year clinical program was developed to meet national pharmacy school accreditation standards relating to experiential programs. The content and assessments were developed in conjunction with the Purdue University Center for Instructional Excellence. The content is taught in a clinically based, on-campus pharmacy. Students serve faculty, staff, retirees and students? prescription needs and provide patient counseling while meeting course objectives through mentored experiences with instructors, pharmacists and upper classmen. Students gain practical and clinical experience with patient care, commonly used drugs and engage in pharmacy operations. The course is a blended design of active learning and small group discussion. It is a highly structured clinical experience that ensures patient safety and incorporates continuous assessment with feedback. Technology plays a key role in student assessments, which are conducted primarily by upperclassmen. Assessment data on course effectiveness has been compiled and is available for review. Pre and post test results, prescription processing methods, counseling simulations, peer-reviewed video recorded counseling sessions with patients, and the use of multimedia and iPads are discussed.
