Community Engaged Learning
This course is a direct patient contact IPPE for PharmD students. Students select one of 6-8 diverse community-based human services agencies (arranged by the instructor) and a student partner with whom to work for the 15 weeks of the semester. In-class discussions and speakers require students to combine an observational evaluation of their experiences with assigned readings on the many aspects of providing and receiving service and medical care. Interactions with both companions and agency partners serve to raise issues relative to diversity, social awareness and civic responsibility, anchored to material from other PharmD courses that discuss the safety, economic, social and political aspects of health care provision from a patient-centered care perspective.
