PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE DOCTOR OF PHARMACY PROGRAM IN THE COLLEGE OF PHARMACY CHAPTER OF THE
UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2010-2012

NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S): Pharm.D. (Doctor of Pharmacy)

EXPLAIN CHANGE(S) TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
Please note on course numbering: In order to maintain the integrity of the current curriculum as current students progress through, while phasing in the new curriculum for students entering in fall 09, we will be submitting course change approvals in a step-wise fashion. Course for the P1 year (fall 09) have now been submitted. For courses later in the curriculum (P2-P4 years) all course changes will be submitted next year to be included in the 2010-2012 catalog. Thus, certain courses in the latter part of the curriculum in this document are designed simply as placeholders to show the semester credit hours (e.g., 2XX, 3XX) since course numbers cannot be assigned at this time.

Course title changes:
(1) PHR 143P Basic Pharmaceutical Sciences Laboratory from Basic Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacology Laboratory.
(2) PHR 251C Pharmaceutical Biochemistry II from Macromolecular Chemistry and Biotechnology.
(3) PHR 396F Pharmacotherapy of Special Populations from Pharmacogenomics.


Movement of existing courses within the curriculum:
(4) PHR 244C Pharmacy Administration and 144P Pharmacy Administration Laboratory from fall-P1 year to the spring-P1 year.
(5) PHR 364D Pharmacy and the Health Care System from spring-P2 year to fall-P2 year.
(6) PHR 392S Patient Assessment Skills Laboratory from spring-P3 year to fall-P2 year.
(7) PHR 284E Pharmacy Law from fall-P3 year to spring-P3 year.


Changes resulting in reduction in course credit hours:
(8) PHR 196P Advance Pharmacotherapy Laboratory reduced from 296P to more accurately reflect contact hours.


Reorganization of existing course or course sequences:
(9) The current course PHR 352C consists of the topics “biopharmaceutics” (2 hrs) and “pharmacokinetics” (1 hr). Under the new curriculum, the biopharmaceutics will be a stand-alone course, PHR 245C Biopharmaceutics. The remaining hour of “pharmacokinetics”, the “pharmacokinetics lab” (PHR 152P) from the spring-P1 year, and the Applied Pharmacokinetics course (PHR 390S) from the spring-P3 year will be combined into an Integrated Pharmacokinetics course (PHR 3XX) and Laboratory (PHR 1XX) to be offered in the spring-P2 year.
(10) PHR 366P Professional Communications and Ethics in the fall-P2 year will be split into PHR 266P Professional Communications in the fall-P2 year and PHR 1XX, a one SCH course in Interdisciplinary Ethics.
(11) The current 3-semester sequence in Pharmacotherapy Laboratory (PHR 165P, 175P, and 185P) will be reduced to a 2-semester sequence.
(12) The current 21-SCH sequence on integrated Pharmacotherapeutics offered during the fall-P2, spring-P2, and summer-P2 semesters has been restructured as to sequencing, and will now be offered over the fall-P2, spring-P2, and fall-P3 semesters.
(13) The current Non-Prescription Pharmacotherapy (PHR 386D) offered in the fall-P3 year will be expanded by one credit hour and divided into two 2-SCH courses (to be offered in the fall-P2 and spring-P2 semesters.


New course additions:
(14) A new Professional Development Convocation I-VI sequence (142H, 152H, 161H, 172H, 182H, and 192H) will be offered each semester of the P1-P3 years.


6807


(15) A new course, Introduction to Clinical Skills course (PHR 2XX) will be added to the spring-P2 semester.
(16) A new experiential course Clinical Skills – Institutional (PHR 2XX) will be added to the summer-P2 semester. All other coursework for that summer has been relocated in the curriculum.
(17) A new experiential sequence Ambulatory Care Clinical Skills Laboratory A&B (PHR 2XX and 2XX) has been added to the fall-P3 and spring-P3 semesters.

GIVE A DETAILED RATIONALE FOR CHANGE(S):

Changes in course title:
(1) PHR 143P Basic Pharmaceutical Sciences Laboratory
(2) PHR 251C Pharmaceutical Biochemistry II
(3) PHR 396F Pharmacotherapy of Special Populations
Each of these title changes is designed to better reflect the content of the course.

Movement of existing courses within the curriculum:
(4) PHR 244C Pharmacy Administration and 144P Pharmacy Administration Laboratory
(5) PHR 364D Pharmacy and the Health Care System
(6) PHR 392S Patient Assessment Skills Laboratory
(7) PHR 284E Pharmacy Law
Changes in placement of these courses are based optimization of the curriculum. Many of these changes have been waiting for several years pending a major curriculum revision.

The following changes respresent reduction in course credit hours:
(8) PHR 196P Advance Pharmacotherapy Laboratory
This change is to more accurately reflect the content and workload of the existing course.

The following changes represent reorganizing existing course or course sequences:
(9) The new pharmacokinetics course and lab (PHR 3XX and 1XX) is based upon integration of the current basic intro material from PHR 353C/152P and the more advanced course PHR390S. The integrated approach is more compatible with our pharmacotherapy coursework, and remedies a long-standing 2-year gap between basic and applied pharmacokinetics. The biopharmaceutics from 352C is retained in a stand-alone 2-SCH course (PHR 245C).
(10) PHR 366P Professional Communications and Ethics is simply being separated into it’s two components with more logical placement in the sequence.
(11) (11) Reduction of the current 3-semester sequence in Pharmacotherapy Laboratory (PHR 165P, 175P, and 185P) to a 2-semester sequence will be accomplished by consolidation of cases.
(12) The current integrated Pharmacotherapeutics sequence is offered over the P2 fall-spring-summer sequence. The course in the summer needs to be moved to the fall-P3 year to accommodate the new Institutional Practice course and the relocation of students to other campuses. In addition, the sequence of topics (and thus the SCH/semester) have been modified based on a thorough review of content.
(13) Non-Prescription Pharmacotherapy (PHR 386D) is being expanded to 4 SCH to add coverage in herbals, alternative medicine, and durable medical products. The division into two 2-SCH courses better parallels the pharmacotherapy sequence.


The following changes represent new course additions:
(14) The new Professional Development Convocation I-VI sequence (142H, 152H, 161H, 172H, 182H, and 192H) to be offered each semester of the P1-P3 years provides an academic home for professional development programming (currently done ad hoc), a progressive developmental/professional student portfolio (mandated by ACPE accreditation standards), and formal presentation of career opportunities in pharmacy.
(15) Introduction to Clinical Skills course (PHR 2XX) is designed to consolidate the clinical skills necessary for institutional (hospital/clinic) practice and is a prelude to the Clinical Skills-Institutional experiential course in the following (summer) semester.


6808


(16) A new experiential course Clinical Skills – Institutional (PHR 2XX) is necessary to meet new ACPE accreditation standards that students be provided a continuity of patient-centered experiential coursework throughout the curriculum, not just during the terminal experiential year. This course provides the requisite hospital practice-based exposure.
(17) A new experiential sequence Ambulatory Care Clinical Skills Laboratory A&B (PHR 2XX and 2XX) is necessary to meet new ACPE accreditation standards that students be provided a continuity of patient-centered experiential coursework throughout the curriculum, not just during the terminal experiential year. This course provides the requisite community practice-based exposure.
