What is Experiential Learning?
At Purdue, experiential learning is woven throughout every year of the PharmD program, culminating with an entire year of advanced experiences. Our students are exceptionally prepared as they move through their experiential curriculum, taking what is learned in the classroom and applying it in a real-world setting. Graduates of our program have experience in the areas they want to practice, thanks to our rigorous required courses and generous opportunity for four advanced elective rotations. The Experiential Learning Program in the Purdue University College of Pharmacy is one of the best in the nation due to the variety of opportunities and established international rotations.
