The PCOM School of Pharmacy utilizes a trimester system with each term lasting approximately 13 weeks. The first
three professional years of the PharmD curriculum are comprised of primarily didactic
coursework and laboratories combined with Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences
(IPPEs) in community and hospital pharmacies. Students are also provided with a realistic
Pharmacist Patient Care Process (PPCP) experience through the use of EHR Go, an educational electronic health records (EHR) platform.
The fourth professional year curriculum is divided into eight, five-week Advanced
Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) covering multiple areas of pharmacy practice,
including community, hospital, general medicine and ambulatory care. At present, the
majority of the PCOM School of Pharmacy clinical experiences (IPPEs and APPEs) are
located within the state of Georgia and the southeastern United States.
