Pharmacy

College of Pharmacy

The Doctor of Pharmacy degree focuses on improving clinical outcomes and improving quality of life.  The mission of the College of Pharmacy is to develop competent and caring pharmacists who advance healthcare and positively impact the profession through innovative education, service, patient-centered care, scientific discovery and development. 

Accreditation

The Doctor of Pharmacy program is ­accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

Professional Standards

Students enrolled in the programs of the College of Pharmacy are expected to endorse professional standards by subscribing to the Oath of a Pharmacist. Students are also expected to abide by the American Pharmacists Association Code of ­Ethics for Pharmacists.

Progression Requirements

Students accepted into the professional PharmD program of the College of Pharmacy will be permitted to progress to the next semester in the professional curriculum only when all of the required courses and assessment activities have been successfully completed. Successful completion is defined to mean that a grade point average of C (2.0) or better must be maintained in required professional courses, as well as required courses outside the College. Any student receiving a grade of D in a required or elective course must successfully remediate that course per the College's Academic Remediation Plan. Students will be allowed to remediate a maximum of 2 courses per academic year, not to exceed a total of 3 courses in the first three didactic years of the program. 

A student who intends to take a required Idaho State University pharmacy course at another institution must receive written permission from the Associate Dean of the ISU College of Pharmacy. This permission must be received prior to enrolling in the course.

Experiential Curriculum

Students must complete a specified number of  hours of Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE), Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences, (APPE) and Inter-professional Education (IPE). IPPE must involve practice experiences in community and institutional pharmacy settings as well as supervised direct patient care responsibilities. Forty-two (42) weeks of the fourth year of the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum are spent in Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE). This requirement assures that the student becomes competent at applying information and concepts learned in the classroom to the practice of pharmacy. Practice sites are assigned by the College.  Decentralization of off-campus programs is a commitment the College has made to provide students with the best possible educational experiences. Students should clearly understand that they may be required to complete at least part of their last year at a remote site. Since patient care is a continuous activity, some off-campus experiences are conducted outside the traditional work day (shift work). Personal expenses including travel, food, and lodging while completing off-campus experiences are the student’s responsibility. 

Pharmacy Extern Registration

All students are required to be licensed externs during all phases of the clinical program. A background check is required prior to extern registration. An additional extern registration is required in other states in which a student does any portion of his or her clinical program (except for Public Health Service sites).

Graduation Requirements

All students graduating from Idaho State University with a Doctor of Pharmacy degree are expected to complete the General Education Requirements as described for the Bachelor of Science degree.

To be eligible for graduation in pharmacy, a student must have earned an average GPA of 2.0 or better on all credits applied toward the minimum graduation requirements of the curriculum. He or she also must have earned an average GPA of 2.0 or better for all required pharmacy courses applied toward graduation. A minimum of 227 semester credits is required for graduation with the Doctor of Pharmacy degree.

Students are responsible for meeting degree requirements in proper sequence. Frequent consultation between student and faculty advisor is encouraged.

Licensure

For graduation with the Doctor of Pharmacy degree, students are required to complete a program of 1,740 hours of structured practical experiences in pharmacy practice environments administered by the College. Successful completion of the clinical program/externship required for the Doctor of Pharmacy degree will satisfy all of the practical experience requirements for licensure in Idaho and Alaska.

Following completion of all requirements, candidates must pass the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination (NAPLEX) and the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination (MPJE) to obtain licensure to practice pharmacy in Idaho. If a student plans to practice pharmacy in states other than Idaho or Alaska, he or she must meet the specific licensing requirements of each state.

An invitation to schedule an on-campus interview is based upon the student’s academic ability and other required components of the pharmacy school application.

Students with international coursework to be considered with their applications must submit an official detailed evaluation report from an institution that is a member of the National Association of Credential Services Incorporated (NACSI).

International students must meet Idaho State University’s admission requirements for international students, which may be found at www.isu.edu/iso/admission.

Upon completion of interviews, applicants are placed into one of three categories:

  1. admission,
  2. reserve for possible admission pending available positions, or
  3. no admission.

As positions become available, students in the reserve admission category will be notified of their selection for admission.

Admission Under Special Circumstances

Transfer from Other Schools of Pharmacy

Students wishing to transfer from another college of pharmacy are considered competitive with prepharmacy students and must present the following materials to the Associate Dean of the College of Pharmacy:

  1. A letter from the Dean of the College of Pharmacy previously attended certifying the program the student was matriculated in and status as to good academic standing;
  2. An official transcript(s) showing that the prepharmacy requirements of Idaho State University have been completed and any pharmacy courses completed thus far;
  3. A letter to the Associate Dean of the College of Pharmacy requesting evaluation of class standing.

Admission to Joint PharmD/MBA Program

Awarding of the MBA in this joint program requires successful completion of the PharmD degree. Students must meet regular admission requirements for the MBA program, except that they are required to have completed the equivalent of an undergraduate degree at the time of admission. Applicants must request the College of Pharmacy to certify to the Graduate School that they have completed 120 hours of course work and that those 120 hours are equivalent to an undergraduate degree.

Doctor of Pharmacy

Curricular Philosophy

We view the curriculum as a tool to develop professionals who assume responsibility for their own learning and who are committed to the advancement of pharmacy practice. The primary curricular goal is the development of a strong foundational knowledge in the biomedical, pharmaceutical and clinical sciences that inculcates a drug-related problem-solving process specific to pharmacy and fosters an evidenced-based approach to optimizing pharmacotherapy and patient health outcomes. We embrace diversity in innovative teaching methods through sound instructional design and encourage the integration of active learning, and multiple curricular and co-curricular opportunities for leadership and professional development. Because it is a dynamic work in progress, we continue to experiment, assess, revise, and innovate within our curriculum to graduate highly competent practitioners.

Professional Curriculum

The professional curriculum requires four years of study. The first three years are a mix of academic courses and practice experiences. The fourth year is comprised of 42 weeks of clinical experiences.

The Doctor of Pharmacy degree can be completed in Pocatello or Meridian, Idaho or in Anchorage, Alaska. Students may complete their fourth year at our clinical sites in Idaho (Meridian, Pocatello, Coeur d’Alene), at our experiential sites in the Anchorage, Alaska region, or in Reno, Nevada.

The first professional year provides a foundation in the basic and pharmaceutical sciences that includes physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology and pharmaceutics. Other courses provide a foundation for professional development that includes topics on ethics, law, drug information, research design, patient care, and the health care system.

Courses and clinical experiences in the second and third professional years build on accrued knowledge and skills. The curriculum centers on an integrated, organ-system approach to the therapeutic management of disease. Additional courses provide insight into the human relation aspects of pharmacy, dosage form design, pharmacy management and physical assessment. A series of case studies courses, designed to enhance the student’s knowledge base and problem-solving skills while focusing on the application of knowledge to specific patient cases, spans the first three years.

The last 42 weeks, or the fourth professional year, is devoted to full-time clinical experience in various pharmacy practice environments. Students will complete six-week experiences in various areas of practice. Students will also have the option of selecting an elective in an area of interest.

Given the length of the final year of the PharmD program, students will begin practice experiences in mid-May after completing their third academic year in the professional program and will continue throughout the ensuing twelve (12) months.

Nontraditional Doctor of Pharmacy Program

The Nontraditional Doctor of Pharmacy (NonT) program at Idaho State University is designed for practitioners holding a Bachelor’s degree in pharmacy and a valid U.S. or Canadian pharmacy license who desire the opportunity to earn the PharmD degree without returning full-time to a college campus. The curriculum includes 37 credits of didactic course work that is taught using a combination of DVDs, interactive web-based case studies, detailed syllabi and textbooks. Each course has an assigned instructor who is available to  students via telephone or e-mail for questions or assistance. Upon completion of the didactic portion of the NonT program, students must perform 18 weeks of on-site experiential training (i.e., Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences - APPEs) in various clinical pharmacy disciplines.

Dates to Begin the Program

The NonT program does not follow the usual academic calendar of the university. Students will be enrolled and initiate courses once official notification of admission has been received.

Requirements for Completion

To remain accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the didactic portion of the program must be completed within 3.5 years of the admission date. This admission date is given to each student upon beginning the program.

Before beginning the experiential portion of the program, a second on-campus visit is required during which the student must complete a comprehensive examination of the didactic curriculum. A physical assessment practicum will also be offered at this time. Following successful completion of these evaluations, students will complete the practical experience requirements.

Every effort will be made to place each student in appropriate experiential training sites convenient to their residence; however, the right must be retained to assign a student to a site away from his/her residence if local accommodations are not available or will not meet the requirements specified by the program. Students may be required to complete their experiential training (APPEs) at sites in Idaho.

Curriculum for Non-Traditional Doctor of Pharmacy

The minimum didactic courses students will be required to complete are as follows:

PDNT 9905Introduction to Clinical Problem Solving1
PDNT 9918Drug Literature Evaluation and Statistics2

TOTAL: 18 weeks

1

The student may choose one 6-week experience or Pharmaceutical Care in a specialty area such as (but not limited to) Pediatrics, Geriatrics, Mental Health, Drug Information, Infectious Disease, and Transplant Therapeutics. While most advanced practice experiences constitute established pharmacy specialties, the Pharmaceutical Care option offers the student the unique opportunity to implement an aspect of pharmaceutical care at their site of employment. Thus, both the employer and the student benefit directly from this educational experience.

 

The College permits waivers of one Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) based upon experience. If a student has extensive experience in one area, then a portfolio of patient write-ups may be submitted. If approved, this portfolio may replace one 6-week APPE.

Minor in Pharmaceutical Sciences

The minor in Pharmaceutical science helps students to prepare for careers in biomedical research and/or pharmaceutical industry.
