Map to Success: Implementing and Assessing EPAs in Experiential Education

Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs), a relatively new concept and requirement in pharmacy education, is a daunting challenge for many programs to adopt.  The experiential education realm presents an even greater challenge, especially in assessment which must rely largely on non-faculty preceptors.  This webinar will provide an overview of the intent and philosophy of EPAs; an example framework for developing, implementing, and assessing EPAs within experiential education and the global curriculum; and an approach to presenting these to ACPE based on one program's experience during a recent focused accreditation visit.


  • Describe processes for integrating and assessing EPAs and milestones in experiential education
  • Describe a successful case study of EPA integration into experiential education based on one ACPE encounter
  • Apply the process of integrating EPAs into a pharmacy school's experiential education program
