Pharm. D. Calendar

Explanation:

The Doctor of Pharmacy Program calendar differs from that of the Purdue University calendar due to incorporation of experiential rotations, referred to as IPPEs in years 1-3 and APPEs in year 4.

First Professional Year (P1)

The College of Pharmacy Orientation Letter provides the start date for P1 students in the fall semester. The start date is either Friday (for students new to the West Lafayette campus) or Sunday prior to the start date of the 16-week University calendar. Otherwise, the P1 schedule aligns with the University calendar, including observance of University breaks and holidays.

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

  • Fall P2 and P3 core courses begin one week later than the University calendar. University breaks and holidays are observed unless enrolled in an experiential rotation.
  • Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) are assigned to P2 and P3 students during one of the following 4-week long blocks: 5/9 – 6/3, 6/6 – 7/1, 7/4 – 7/29, 11/28 – 12/23, or 1/2 – 1/27. Summer block options occur prior to the associated P2 or P3 year.
  • Intensive electives (IE) are offered twice annually to P2/P3 students who are not enrolled in an IPPE.
    1. Beginning after Thanksgiving break and ending the last day of the University fall calendar
    2. Beginning the first day of the University spring calendar and ending prior to the start of the 12-week PharmD semester.

Fourth professional year (P4)

  • Following successful completion of all didactic courses, students begin Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) on May 9, 2022 and end April 21, 2023 prior to graduation.
  • Students complete the equivalent of nine (plus one optional) 4-wk rotation blocks.
  • P4 students enrolled in an APPE do not observe University breaks.
