Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) occur in the context of required courses during the P1, P2 and P3 years. Students must be registered as student interns with the Texas State Board of Pharmacy (TSBP) to participate in these courses. IPPEs primarily occur in pharmacy practice sites, but also may include volunteer activities related to pharmacy practice.
IPPEs that occur beginning in the summer of the P2 year and following occur in Austin/Temple and San Antonio. Students assigned to these regions by virtue of the region assignment process will participate in IPPEs and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs) in their assigned campus/region.
