Students are assigned to selected outpatient pharmacy facilities for directed clinical practice in pharmacy technology. This is a required, supervised learning experience under the direction of a pharmacist. Rotation selections include community, independent, and hospital outpatient pharmacy locations. The eight-week clinical rotation includes sixteen hours per week in the clinical area.
This eight-week externship rotation begins in March during the winter semester. Students are required to be enrolled and have passing grades in PHT 125, PHT 165, PHT 175, and PHT 178 before being assigned to an outpatient externship rotation.
