13 Experiential Education PPS928 – Summer PY1 Community environment; 4 weeks PPS948 – Summer PY2 Hospital environment; 4 weeks PPS98X – Entire PY4 year Mixed environments; 6 weeks x 7 Some elective areas of focus 11 semesters of study

14 Educational Approach Self-directed High expectations Mutual respect Preparation to become a healthcare professional Make decisions that affect patients’ lives

15 Curriculum Combination of foundation knowledge and clinical skills Heavy grounding in science Large and small group learning approaches Increasing rigor and complexity Produce an excellent pharmacist for today, as well as for tomorrow

16 Hi, My name is Xxx Yyy (PYx) and I was looking over my exam today and realized I had not penciled in 4 questions 28-31 on the exam, and therefore was not granted credit, even though my circled responses were on the actual exam. 3 out of the 4 of them I would have gotten correctly have i had darkened them in on the scantron. i guess my point in emailing you was to bring forth to your attention that there could be more attention focused on the grading side,

17 since errors like these do occur on side of students, and they could be neutralized by exam-graders. i feel that i have submitted to you, if not in full manner, still adequate answers that should have been noticed, since they were clearly missing on the scantron sheet as well as the summary grade sheet. I appreciate quick grading and prompt return of exams, but I would like to ask you if more thorough grading could be implemented in the future. Thanks for your time

18 Personal Tips Communicate Seek help and ask questions Meet with faculty Plan ahead Check UK email account at least daily Suggest improvements

19 Personal Tips Be professional Punctual, prepared, neat, organized responsible Foster mutual respect Wear your ID badge

20 Personal Tips Take advantage of opportunities Work with us to help you get the most out of your education Remove distractions

21 Personal Tips Commit to making daily deposits, rather than withdrawals, in your professional bank account.

22 Vows of a Pharmacy Student

23 I realize what an important opportunity pharmacy school is for me. I realize it is impossible to cram for exams and perform well in pharmacy school. I realize it is impossible to miss sleep and perform well in pharmacy school. I realize it is impossible to eat poorly and perform well in pharmacy school.

24 Therefore, I vow to: Study every day. Eliminate distractions. Eat healthy meals. Exercise regularly. Maintain a healthy sleep schedule. Do all these things, especially during block exams. I will remember and uphold these vows.

25 25 Perspective 95% of students graduate on schedule Highest passing rates on national licensure exam for more than a decade

44 What Can I Do? Pharmaceutical Industry – Health outcomes of drug products Managed Care Organizations – Humana and other insurance companies – Prescription and outcomes research Government – FDA – Public Health Service and global health *Indian Health Service

45 Which Option is Best for Me?

51 PharmD/MSPAS Practice Generally function as either a PA or a PharmD Prescriptive privileges Refined physical assessment skills Models in the COP (MaJ)

52 Urban Myths (These things are NOT true) Dual degree students automatically get all APPE rotations in Lexington Dual degree students can’t do any APPEs outside of Kentucky Dual degree students don’t have to take block exams

53 Pearls Research programs The dual degree is NOT awarded by the COP; responsibility rests with you Be proactive – start early Two degrees not one – will require more work Read DDs FAQs

128 Introduction to the Patient Care Laboratory Sequence Trish Freeman, RPh, PhD Clinical Associate Professor Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science

129 Goal of the Patient Care Laboratory A 6-course laboratory sequence (PPS 919 – 969) designed to assist you in developing the skills needed to fulfill the professional and technical responsibilities associated with the practice of pharmacy – Provide patient care – Oversee the medication-use system – Promote health improvement, wellness and disease prevention

130 Goal of the Patient Care Laboratory By the end of the 6-course laboratory sequence, you will have the skills and knowledge to provide patient-centered care in a manner consistent with the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science’s “Philosophy of Practice”

131 The Philosophy of Practice The pharmacist: – assumes a defined responsibility for the patients under his/her direct care – accepts responsibility for his/her patients need for expertise in reducing individual medication-related morbidity and mortality, and assumes overall responsibility for patient care in collaboration with other health care professionals – addresses all of his/her patients’ medication- related needs using a patient-centered approach – approaches each individual patient in such a way as to establish a caring therapeutic one-on-one relationship

132 Key Laboratory Policies Professionalism Professional Dress Attendance/Punctuality

133 Professionalism Our expectations of you – Be on time – Be prepared – Be respectful – Meet deadlines – Take responsibility for your learning and your behavior – Learn for participation in a life-long career, not to pass a test!

134 Professionalism Our commitment to you – Provide the highest quality educational experience – Work with you to assist your learning – Be respectful of you

135 Professional Dress Why is it important? – You are entering a profession – You will come in contact with patients and other professionals – When you look professional, your behavior is more likely to be professional

136 Professional Dress Students will maintain a clean, neat appearance at all times Avoid extremes in hairstyles, cosmetics and jewelry Earrings are permitted Nose rings, eyebrow rings and other visible piercings are not permitted in lab A professor may set forth additional standards of attire in his or her syllabus If a faculty member deems a student's attire inappropriate, according to established policy, the student will be notified privately outside of class and asked to correct the problem

137 Professional Dress White lab coat must be worn during all lab activities Additional requirements include dress shirts and ties, sweaters or turtlenecks for men and appropriate dress clothes for women Jeans and open-toe shoes may not be worn in the lab Some laboratory activities may require the removal of jewelry, nail polish and excessively long fingernails

138 Attendance/Punctuality Important component of professionalism – Better to learn now than later when entering the workforce! Students are expected to arrive on time for all lab activities Attendance at all lab activities is mandatory and non-negotiable

139 Summer Assignments – Math Why are they necessary? – To assist you in achieving success in the PY1 year – Pharmacy calculations is an integral part of PPS 919 – Patient Care Laboratory I – Reviewing basic math skills will prepare you for PY1 calculations and improve your math background

141 Summer Assignments – Med Term Why are they necessary? – A basic understanding of medical terminology is important for solving simple patient problems and reviewing patient records as part of PY1 lab sessions – Additional chapters in the text will be assigned throughout the subsequent years as organ systems are taught in other courses

142 Summer Assignments – Med Term Textbook - Medical Terminology: A Programmed Learning Approach to the Language of Health Care by Marjorie Canfield Willis, 2 nd edition, 2007 Assignment: Read and work through the following: – Chapter 1- Basic Term Components – Appendix A – Glossary of Prefixes, Suffixes, and Combining Forms – Appendix B – Abbreviations and Symbols
