Report of the AACP Conference on Guidelines for Doctor of Pharmacy Programs (Kansas City, Missouri, October 26-28, 1975).
American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, Bethesda, MD.
Recommendations regarding Doctor of Pharmacy programs are presented, based on reactions to American Council on Pharmaceutical Education tentative guidelines to its published "Standards." The reactions to the guidelines were expressed at an open hearing held at the 1975 Annual Meeting of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy. Recommendations that were developed at the conference workshops concern: competencies expected of the Doctor of Pharmacy program graduate, the curriculum, evaluation of student performance, criteria for admitting students, types of faculty, qualifications of faculty, and service roles. Curriculum areas are as follows: basic science and preclinical components, structure of the clinical component, the introductory clinical clerkship, required clinical clerkships, selective-elective clinical clerkships, and time distribution in clinical clerkships. Miscellaneous curriculum considerations include: outpatient and ambulatory care experiences; student responsibilities and the degree of supervision in the clinical component of the curriculum; the relationship of the clinical component to postdoctoral residencies; and social, behavioral, and anthropological aspects of Doctor of Pharmacy education. In addition to specific recommendations, issues that are important to the charge and recommendations are identified, along with points of difference or controversy among the workshops. A synopsis of discussions and important remarks that were made by conference participants during the general session, position papers on workshop topics, charges to workshops and instructions for workshop participants are included.
