Experiential education (practice experience) provides students with an opportunity to receive hands-on experience at a variety of pharmaceutical care centers.
Students gain perspective on their future career through practice experience. This exposure to a wide range of pharmacy workplaces and careers, prepares them as they transition from student to practitioner.
Students will begin practicing pharmacy as soon as they enroll. Early practice experiences allow students to:
- Solve problems related to medications
- Learn to communicate with patients
- Manage themselves and others
The structure of the experiential program is become increasingly more challenging as students move through the curriculum, with the fourth year focused on all experiential learning.
D'Youville College's Office of Experiential Education places students at sites across Western New York and in some special cases, across the country. The office also serves as a link between the D'Youville College School of Pharmacy and our valued and growing network of preceptors.
