Pharm. D. Calendar

Explanation:

The Doctor of Pharmacy Program calendar differs from that of the Purdue University calendar, including semester start dates.

First Professional Year (P1)

  • The College of Pharmacy orientation letter provides the start date for P1 students in the fall semester. Otherwise, the P1 schedule aligns with the University calendar, including observance of University breaks.

Second professional (P2) and third professional (P3) years

  • The P2/P3 fall calendar begins one week later than the University calendar. In the spring, professional elective courses begin the same week as University courses, whereas the 12-week core courses begin three weeks later.
  • P2 students are assigned one 4-week IPPE block in July, August, or the following January. P3 students are assigned one 4-week IPPE block in July, August, November/December or the following January.
  • P2 and P3 students do not observe University breaks while enrolled in an IPPE.
  • Students not enrolled in an IPPE may enroll in intensive electives. In the fall, they are offered at the conclusion of the 12-week semester. In the spring, they begin in accord with the University calendar.

Fourth professional year (P4)

  • Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) blocks begin in May, following successful completion of the P3 year.
  • Students complete the equivalent of ten 4-wk rotation blocks, which end in April.
  • P4 students enrolled in an APPE do not observe University breaks.
