2019 TIPed session topics

Accreditation standards and EPA

How do we map to accreditation standards and EPAs; how are we assessing the affective domains?

Change management

What models have been successfully executed?

EPA evaluation

What models exist or are being developed to truly evaluate EPAs? Are the student pharmacists where we say they are?

IPE examples and replicability

What longitudinal design and assessment strategies have been developed or are in the development stage to meet needs today and beyond?

Personalized medicine, pharmacogenomics, compounding and technology tools

How are we teaching informatics to assure future pharmacists make good decisions for patients regarding personalized medicine? What innovative strategies are used to incorporate concepts related to precision medicine research, technology and policies into the curriculum?

Practice readiness (scholarship of teaching and learning)

How are curricula designed to assure student pharmacists are practice ready. How does the scholarship of teaching and learning support this initiative?

Students in research

How do we prepare students to advance practice and care for patients in innovative ways through research training?
