Welcome to The Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy at The University of Texas at Tyler's Office of Experiential Education. Experiential education constitutes one-third of the pharmacy curriculum, where students get to apply the knowledge obtained from the classroom and laboratory settings to professional practice experiences. In addition to the practice experiences, each student will have the benefit of focused reflection time both individually and in a small group setting. Experiential education allows the student to increase their pharmacy knowledge base, develop pertinent pharmacist skills and contribute to the health and wellness of their patients and communities in which they serve. Our approach to experiential education is different than many other pharmacy programs in that we integrate experiential education with the didactic coursework from the beginning of the first professional year. All students will receive a variety of clinical and professional experiences each year. Experiential education is structured to be comprehensive and efficient for students and preceptors, yet individualized so that each student will become competent and confident in meeting their professional pharmacy goals.
The Office of Experiential Education would like to thank our community practitioners and key institutional partners for their outstanding and continuous support of The Ben and Maytee Fisch College of Pharmacy. We look forward to serving the healthcare community and graduating exceptional pharmacists to care for the citizens of this great region. We know that the partnership of our College with the practice community will lead to improved healthcare outcomes and a healthier population.
If you have any questions or feedback for the Office of Experiential Education, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to successful and rewarding pharmacy practice experiences for all involved.
