In order to stimulate interest in and promote preparation for either a career in academia or a practitioner role with a teaching component, an elective six-week advanced practice experience for PharmD students and a required module (two of three credits semester course) for graduate students were created. Objectives, materials, and activities of both experiences will be presented. The experiences are similarly structured to consider pharmaceutical education from historical, accreditation, and curricular perspectives as well as teaching topics such as instructional design, components of effective teaching, and test construction principles. In addition, two individuals, one who selected the rotation and one who completed the graduate course will present their perspectives on the modules and demonstrate how they have applied the principles in their current roles of graduate teaching assistant/graduate student and assistant professor.
