Immersion and Advanced Immersion Experiences are based on a calendar month beginning on the first business day and ending on the last business day of the month. The dates for Immersion and Advanced Immersion Experiences are posted within Core ELMS. The experiential programs calendar takes precedence over the University and Eshelman School of Pharmacy Academic Calendars. Academic breaks and holidays are not recognized during experiences.
In accordance with Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, Immersion and Advanced Immersion Experiences are full time commitments (minimum 40 hours per week, 160 hours per month). In order to offer optimal patient care and learning experiences students should expect to be present at the site more than 40 hours per week. While there are no stated maximum hours the School does encourage adherence to the duty rules set forth by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists Duty Hour Requirements for Pharmacy Residencies. Time spent at the practice site may include a variety of day, evening or weekend hours as determined by the site.
