CAPE Educational Outcomes

AACP Resource

An initiative of the Center for the Advancement of Pharmacy Education (formerly the Center for the Advancement of Pharmaceutical Education) (CAPE), the CAPE Educational Outcomes are intended to be the target toward which the evolving pharmacy curriculum should be aimed. Their development was guided by an advisory panel composed of educators and practitioners nominated for participation by practitioner organizations. CAPE 2013 represents the fourth iteration of the Educational Outcomes, preceded by CAPE 1992, CAPE 1998 and CAPE 2004 respectively. The CAPE 2013 Educational Outcomes were released at the AACP July 2013 Annual meeting.

An overview of the methodology used to revise the Educational Outcomes can be found in the 2012–13 Academic Affairs Standing Committee Report.

CAPE 2013 Worksheet

Colleges or schools are encouraged to use this Word version of the CAPE 2013 Educational Outcomes to expand or edit these example learning objectives to meet local needs, as these are not designed to be prescriptive. The domains, subdomains, and example learning objectives are coded with a numbering system to increase clarity. The depth and delineation of the example learning objectives allows for mission specific needs of individual institutions to be met at the programmatic level.  CAPE Educational Outcomes 2013  (Word Document/Members Only)

Section and SIG CAPE Papers

The goals of the Section and SIG CAPE Papers are to have the different content areas represented create a guidance document that describes:

1. How their respective subject is reflected in the CAPE 2013 Educational Outcomes, how this subject matter will be achieved pedagogically, and finally how it will be assessed.

2. Suggestions on how colleagues in a given discipline could use CAPE 2013 in the design, delivery, and assessment of their courses or professional programs.
