The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) provides opportunities for student pharmacists to learn the operations of the national association involved in academic pharmacy.
The rotation schedule is designed to be 4-6 weeks in duration and is available September–April. No students will be accepted for the month of December. The rotation is intended to be an elective opportunity for a college or school of pharmacy's advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE) curriculum-based experiential program. Requests to participate should be coordinated by the student through the experiential coordinator of the college or school of pharmacy.
Transportation, housing and all other costs of living are the full responsibility, financially and otherwise, of the student pharmacist. There is no stipend or salary associated with the APPE.
The student pharmacist:
The application submitted by the student should include:
*AACP anticipates having no more than one (1) APPE student pharmacist during a rotation session (there is a possibility of APPE student overlap due to varying college/school of pharmacy rotation scheduling).
*The selection of all APPE students will be made by AACP staff members.
AACP does not accept APPE students from May 1-August 1 and the month of December.
AACP reserves the right to refuse, with sufficient notice, the request of any student to participate in the elective rotation in the event of significant organizational scheduling conflicts which would interfere with the quality of the student's experience.
The complete package should be sent to the following address (e-mail is acceptable):
