Supporting Statements—The program teaches students through a common patient-care process how to meet the drug-related needs of society at a patient-specific level. Emphasis is placed on preparing a generalist practitioner with the knowledge, skills, and values required to provide patient care. The program provides knowledge of the chemical, biological, physical, social, and clinical sciences that underline pharmacy. Students in the program develop skills such as problem solving, communication, and analytical thinking, as well as the ability to adapt to change and challenges in health care. Professional ethics, social responsibility, professional citizenship, and commitment to lifelong learning are values emphasized by the program.
The University’s mission, carried out on multiple campuses and throughout the state, is threefold: Research and Discovery—Generate and preserve knowledge, understanding, and creativity by conducting high-quality research, scholarship, and artistic activity that benefit students, scholars, and communities across the state, the nation, and the world. Teaching and Learning—Share that knowledge, understanding, and creativity by providing a broad range of educational programs in a strong and diverse community of learners and teachers, and prepare graduate, professional, and undergraduate students, as well as non-degree-seeking students interested in continuing education and lifelong learning, for active roles in a multiracial and multicultural world. Outreach and Public Service—Extend, apply, and exchange knowledge between the University and society by applying scholarly expertise to community problems, by helping organizations and individuals respond to their changing environments, and by making the knowledge and resources created and preserved at the University accessible to the citizens of the state, the nation, and the world. In all of its activities, the University strives to sustain an open exchange of ideas in an environment that embodies the values of academic freedom, responsibility, integrity, and cooperation; that provides an atmosphere of mutual respect, free from racism, sexism,
and other forms of prejudice and intolerance; that assists individuals, institutions, and communities in responding to a continuously changing world; that is conscious of and responsive to the needs of the many communities it is committed to serving; that creates and supports partnerships within the University, with other educational systems and institutions, and with communities to achieve common goals; and that inspires, sets high expectations for, and empowers the individuals within its community.
Overview The College of Pharmacy at the University of Minnesota is one of the outstanding pharmacy education and research institutions in the world. U.S. News and World Report ranks it as the third best college of pharmacy in the United States. Graduates of the fouryear doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program enter the profession as well-qualified, highly sought-after pharmacists. The college’s programs are supported by centers of excellence in diverse areas—such as geriatrics, pharmacy management and economics, rural pharmacy, pharmaceutical care, and drug design and delivery. The teaching, research, and service activities of the 80 full-time faculty members and hundreds of volunteer faculty are focused in five departments: medicinal chemistry, pharmaceutics, pharmaceutical care and health systems, experimental and clinical pharmacology, and pharmacy practice and pharmaceutical sciences (Duluth). The Twin Cities campus of the college is housed in the Academic Health Center on the Minneapolis campus. The Duluth campus is located at the University of Minnesota, Duluth (UMD), and is housed in the Life Sciences Building, renovated in 2007 for the college and adjacent to the Medical School, Duluth. Both campuses are designed for health education, research, and practice.
Pharmacy students have access to modern classrooms, laboratories, and more than 350,000 volumes of pharmacy resource materials. In addition, students have unique opportunities to experience rural/ small town and urban pharmacy practice, interprofessional activities, and outreach to the community. The college is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 20 North Clark Street, Suite 2500 Chicago, IL 60602-5109 (312664-3575).
History Throughout the college’s history, its programs have evolved to meet the needs of the pharmacy profession. In 1892, the college initiated a program consisting of two years of professional studies leading to the doctor of pharmacy degree. To accommodate new knowledge and technology, the period of formal instruction was extended to a fouryear baccalaureate degree (B.S.) in 1927 and increased to five years in 1954. A clinical component was added to the B.S. program in 1967; a doctor of pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program was established in 1971. The college added a six-year Pharm.D. program in 1981 and, in 1987, revised the professional education curricula and introduced careertracking options. In 1995, the college introduced a new Pharm.D. program and phased out the former Pharm.D. and B.S. programs. The college extended its program to the Duluth campus in fall 2003.
Commitment to Diversity Students at the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy will learn to assess and address the drug-related needs of patients from many different cultures who might speak a number of different languages and possess different value systems. This creates a need for students, our future pharmacy practitioners, who are themselves ethnically, racially, socioeconomically,
and geographically diverse, having varied life experiences and academic backgrounds. A diverse student body benefits the education of all students in our college and supports the College of Pharmacy’s commitment to educating pharmacists who will serve the health needs of a diverse society. Consistent with University of Minnesota Regents policy, the College of Pharmacy Admissions Committee will consider the following diversity factors in the admissions review process:
• Diversity of academic / professional background
• • • • •

Services for Students with Disabilities The University’s mission is to provide optimal educational opportunities for all students, including those with disabilities. The University recognizes that reasonable accommodations may be necessary for students with disabilities to have access to campus programs and facilities. In general, University policy calls for accommodations to be made on an individualized and flexible basis. Students are responsible for seeking assistance at the University and making their needs known. One of the first places to seek assistance is Disability Services (DS). This office is provided by the University of Minnesota to promote access, which means ensuring the rights of students with disabilities (e.g., physical, learning, psychiatric, sensory, systemic) and assisting the University in meetings its obligations under federal and state statutes. Disability Services has an Academic Health Center liaison who provides direct assistance
4 Programs of Study
Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Program— The Pharm.D. program prepares students to identify, resolve, and prevent drug-related problems. Students learn to provide patient care to achieve positive drug-therapy outcomes that improve the quality of a patient’s life. Before enrolling in the college, students complete pre-pharmacy coursework at an accredited college. The required PharmD. coursework listed in the curricula section is offered on a full-time, day-school basis only. Postgraduate Fellowship and Residency Programs—The postgraduate fellowship programs in pharmacy practice prepare clinical scientists to become leaders in drug research. The residency programs provide advanced training in general pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical care, and specialty practices such as cardiology, nephrology, infectious disease, transplant, and pediatrics. Candidates for fellowships and most residencies must have a Pharm.D., M.S., or Ph.D. and equivalent clinical experience, be eligible for licensure to practice pharmacy in Minnesota, and meet other qualifications specific to the program for which application is made. Some residencies are available to
candidates who have a B.S. in pharmacy. For information, call 612-625-1900.

The college offers noncredit as well as University-credit programs. For more information, call the Office of Outreach Education at 612-625-8616 or 1-800-633-6638 or visit ce.pharmacy. umn.edu/.
admission Admission to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Program Pre-pharmacy Advising The college’s Office of Student Services (OSS) provides pre-pharmacy advising and answers questions about admission requirements and application procedures for the Pharm.D. program. Student services staff can also refer students to pre-pharmacy advisers in all Minnesota and nearby Wisconsin colleges. Students may contact the Office of Student Services at two locations: Twin Cities—College of Pharmacy, Office of Student Services, University of Minnesota, 3-160 Weaver-Densford Hall, 308 Harvard
Admission Requirements Candidates must have a PharmCAS GPA of at least 3.00 or a GPA of 3.20 over the last 60 semester credits to qualify for admission. The required pre-pharmacy courses (listed below) may be taken at any regionally accredited U.S. college. While the pre-pharmacy courses alone are sufficient to prepare a student for the Pharm.D. curriculum, most applicants admitted to the College of Pharmacy obtain a bachelor’s degree before entering the Pharm.D. program. Pre-pharmacy courses must be taken A–F and completed with a grade of at least C- before enrollment. In addition to required pre-pharmacy courses, students must complete at least 30 semester (45 quarter) credits of academic general education (non-science, nonmathematics, non-professional/vocational, non-physical education) courses. Prepharmacy credits earned in behavioral sciences, English composition, economics, and public speaking apply toward the general education requirement. It is recommended that this requirement be completed before entering the Pharm.D. program. General education courses that do not fulfill prepharmacy requirements may be taken S-N (pass/fail). Transfer Students—Students wishing to transfer from another pharmacy college must fulfill all Pharm.D. admission requirements. Transfer or postbaccalaureate students may be admitted if space is available. Professional courses completed at another college of pharmacy are evaluated for equivalency to University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy coursework. Transfer students must spend at least one year at the University before qualifying for a degree. Transfer students must apply through PharmCAS.

Essential Capacities for Matriculation, Promotion, and Graduation
Applicants who are admitted pay a $500 nonrefundable tuition deposit to hold a place in the college.

The deposit is not refunded to applicants who do not enroll in the year admitted; nor is it transferable to another application cycle.
One of the primary missions of the College of Pharmacy is to educate pharmacists with superior knowledge and skills to provide contemporary patient care services both now and in the future. The faculty of the college strive to deliver an education that will, through the graduates of the doctor of pharmacy program, attain the highest levels of this goal.
Evaluation of Applicants
The Admissions Committee uses the following criteria to evaluate all applicants (in no particular order of weight or importance): • Academic achievement—GPA, PCAT, course selection, course load, bachelor’s degree (preferred) • Work experience
The professional program leading to the doctor of pharmacy degree and eligibility for pharmacist licensure requires a certain level of cognitive, behavioral, and technical skill, and personal and professional integrity inherent in a professional education. These principles and standards hold for admission to, progression in, retention by, and completion of the program.
The primary role of the pharmacist is to provide safe and effective health care to patients. Patient safety must be considered in the selection and education of student pharmacists. The College of Pharmacy also has a responsibility to maintain a safe environment in the settings in which its students practice and receive an education. Student pharmacists must contribute to a safe environment through their personal, physical, and mental health or social behavior. Students must complete the academic program in a reasonable length of time, must be able to acquire a pharmacist intern license after their first year in the college and maintain the license during their educational program, and must be eligible for a pharmacist license after they complete the doctor of pharmacy program. All students are expected to fulfill the same core educational requirements. Reasonable education-related accommodations are provided where possible, within University guidelines. Students need to possess the skills and abilities that, with or without accommodations, will allow successful fulfillment of program requirements. Graduates are eligible to become pharmacists without restrictions on their practice. The program does not allow students to take a partial set of required activities.
Technical Standards Observation—Observation requires the use of visual, auditory, and somatic senses, with reasonable accommodation if necessary. Students must have the ability to observe and evaluate, in classrooms and patient care areas, demonstrations, experiments, and patients; perform physical assessments; and observe the quality of pre-manufactured and compounded medications. Communication—Student pharmacists must communicate effectively and efficiently in oral and written English and properly use and recognize nonverbal communication cues, with reasonable accommodation if necessary. They must be capable of completing
professional communication activities in a timely manner. Motor—Student pharmacists must have coordinated muscular movements, with reasonable accommodation if necessary, to prepare and evaluate all forms of medication orders, use diagnostic equipment for patient assessment, and directly deliver patient therapies. Intellectual, conceptual, integrative, and quantitative abilities—Student pharmacists must demonstrate a fundamental and continuing ability to use analytical reasoning to independently and in collaboration with a health care team synthesize knowledge, solve problems, and explain health care situations. Information must be obtained, retrieved, evaluated, and delivered in an efficient and timely manner. Students must be able to demonstrate good judgment in patient care and assessment and have the ability to incorporate new and changing information obtained from the practice environment. Behavioral and social attributes—Student pharmacists must demonstrate appropriate professional and ethical demeanor. Students must be able to function within the regulatory and institutional limits of the educational environment and modify behaviors based on criticism. Students must demonstrate compassion and integrity, a concern for others, and respect for the privacy of information about patients. This requires responsibility for personal action and emotional stability under the stressful conditions that may arise from their professional education. Individuals with questions or concerns about their ability to meet these standards are encouraged to call the director of student services at 612-624-2649.
Background Study Requirement Minnesota law requires that any student who provides services that involve unsupervised direct contact with patients and residents at
hospitals, nursing homes, and other health care facilities licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health undergo a background study conducted by the state. The study covers civil agency findings related to maltreatment of children or vulnerable adults and a range of criminal convictions. A student who is disqualified from having direct patient contact as a result of the background study and whose disqualification is not set aside by the commissioner of health may not participate in a clinical placement in these licensed health care facilities. Failure to pass the background study is grounds for dismissal from the doctor of pharmacy program.
Costs and Financial Aid Tuition and Fees For current information on tuition and fees, please visit www.pharmacy.umn.edu/pharmd /admissions/costs/. As part of their required courses, students complete introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences at a variety of sites throughout the state. Students may be required to live in locations other than Duluth or the Twin Cities during summer Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs) and fourth-year Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs). Students are responsible for living and travel arrangements and expenses.
Residency and Reciprocity Because the University is a state subsidized institution, Minnesota residents pay lower tuition than nonresidents. To qualify for resident status, students must permanently reside in Minnesota and have been physically and continuously present in the state for at least one calendar year before the first day of class attendance at the University; and must, during this one-year period, have resided in Minnesota for some reason other than primarily to attend classes at a postsecondary education institution. The College of
Pharmacy has reciprocity agreements with South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Manitoba. For more information, contact Residency and Reciprocity Office, 240 Williamson Hall, 231 Pillsbury Drive S.E., Minneapolis, MN 55455 (612-625-6330) or Office of the Registrar and Financial Aid, Student Assistance Center, 21 Solon Campus Center, 1117 University Drive, Duluth, MN 55812 (218-726-8000) or the residency office on your campus.
Financial Aid Pharmacy students finance their education from a combination of sources, including personal or family funds, scholarships, loans, and employment. Applications for federal, state, and institutional loans are administered by the financial aid office on each campus. Students file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the financial aid office on the campus of their enrollment. The FAFSA is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov and at financial aid offices. Applications should be filed as soon as possible after January 1. Students may apply before they are admitted.

Policies and Requirements Student Code of Academic Integrity and Professional Responsibility Part I—The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy Honor System—developed, assumed, and administered by students—is intended to provide a framework of expectations and responsibilities for members of the College of Pharmacy community. It is intended to promote a spirit of community, a spirit of professionalism, and a spirit of trust. It challenges pharmacy students to adopt principles of professional behavior and responsibility within the context of academic honesty, integrity, and community standards. It challenges college faculty and administration to uphold,
demonstrate and profess those principles and standards. It encourages all members of the College of Pharmacy community to discuss expectations in the spirit of mutual trust and respect. The essence of the Honor System is codified in the “Pharmacy Student Code of Academic Integrity and Professional Responsibility” (the Code), which specifies student responsibilities relative to academic honesty and clinical obligations. The spirit and intent of the Honor System is to prevent the occurrence of such violations through proper education, and appeal to individual conscience and mutual understanding of expectations among the members of the College of Pharmacy community. The Code is communicated, promoted and maintained by the Honor Council, a group of students elected by their peers. Reports of alleged Code violations are investigated and processed by the Honor Council in a manner that assures the anonymity of all parties involved, except in cases of appeal by either party. The integrity of the Honor System and Code carries with it a twofold responsibility: first, to personally abide by the principles and rules of academic honesty and clinical obligations, and second, to ensure observance of its rules by all members. Both aspects of the twofold responsibility ultimately rely on the conscience of each individual. Understanding of these responsibilities is signified in the “Honor Code Affirmation” taken by students upon acceptance into the college community; action in accordance with these responsibilities is signified by the “Honor Code Reaffirmation,” made explicitly or implicitly on all college coursework submitted to fulfill requirements. Part II—In addition to the general principles of academic integrity and professional responsibility mentioned above, each student is bound by the following specific provisions as part of the Code. 1. Each student will respect intellectual and physical property and will not use such property without the owner’s permission.
2. Each student recognizes that academic misconduct is unacceptable behavior for students in a professional school and is a violation of the code. Academic misconduct is any unauthorized act that may give a student an unfair advantage over other students, including but not limited to the following: Falsification—altering, forging or misusing a University academic record; willfully providing University offices or officials with false, misleading, or incomplete information; fabricating data. Plagiarism—use of work or ideas of others without crediting the source. Misuse of test materials—taking, acquiring, or using test materials without faculty permission; taking or damaging a posted examination or assignment key. Receiving unauthorized assistance— copying or consulting information during an exam provided by other individuals, notes, textbooks or other references except as specified by the evaluator; copying or collaborating on class work, lab reports or other assignments that require independent work; receiving questions, answers or a copy of an original exam before taking the makeup exam. Giving unauthorized assistance—sharing answers during an exam; writing a paper or completing an assignment for another; sharing exam questions or answers with a student before a make-up exam. 3. Each student recognizes the privacy rights of other students involved in an Honor Council proceeding. Any student who serves as an accuser, witness or Honor Council member will not discuss with other students outside the proceeding the identities of parties, nature of, specific details about, or disposition of allegations and cases. 4. Each student recognizes that his or her primary responsibility while on clinical rotations is the care of her or his patients and that the patients’ welfare has precedence over a student’s personal educational objectives. The student will
respect each patient’s privacy and dignity and will maintain confidentiality with regard to information about patients. Each student recognizes his or her responsibility to consult with the house staff, preceptor, or attending physician regarding each patient’s management. 5. Each student recognizes that part of her or his clinical obligations includes providing coverage when assigned (e.g., at clinics, at night, or on weekends). When such an assignment is made, a student will abide by it or make suitable alternative arrangements with the faculty member who made the assignment. If a student is convinced that such an assignment is inappropriate, the matter must be discussed with the course coordinator. Part III—Upon accepting an offer of admission to the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy, each student will be asked to sign the following statement: “I hereby affirm that I have read, understand and accept the provisions and stipulations of the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy Student Code of Academic Integrity and Professional Responsibility.” All signed Affirmations of the Honor Code shall be kept on file and maintained by the Office of Student Services. Students who are unwilling to sign this statement will not be permitted to register for courses at the college. The Honor Council will administer an Honor Code orientation for all incoming degreeseeking students shortly after matriculation in the College of Pharmacy. At the conclusion of this orientation, students will be asked to affirm the Honor Code by writing and signing the Honor Code Reaffirmation in their own hand. A reaffirmation of the code is required on all coursework submitted to fulfill course requirements in courses offered by the College of Pharmacy.
The reaffirmation must be explicitly made on examinations and may be required on other coursework, at the discretion of the instructor. Part IV—Cases of suspected violations of the Honor Code will be reported or referred to the Honor Council, which will investigate and act on such reports. All Honor Council activities are conducted in a manner that honors confidentiality and fairness. 1. After reports of alleged violations of the code are made to the Honor Council, the case is investigated, discussed and subsequently the Honor Council votes to (i) “dismiss” or (ii) issue a “finding of violation” and recommend a sanction. 2. A violation of the code occurs if the majority of voting Honor Council members feel that the evidence and testimony met the standard of “more likely than not” that a violation did occur. 3. The Honor Council shall propose a recommended sanction if a student is found guilty of a violation of the code. Some possible sanctions include, but are not limited to: written warning, probation, assignment of “F” for the assignment or course, or dismissal from the college. 4. Honor Council decisions or recommendations that are subsequently challenged by either party to a case are referred to the College of Pharmacy Academic Standing Committee for a formal hearing conducted in accordance with “due process” considerations. These considerations include the right of the “accused” to face the “accuser” and hence, a loss of anonymity.
Academic Standing Policy and Progression The Academic Standing Committee, a subcommittee of the Student Affairs Committee, consists of five faculty members and two students. The Academic Standing Committee meets regularly to monitor the academic progress of students on both
campuses, consider petitions from students who wish to depart from the established program requirements or have a requirement waived, and adjudicates accusations of student misconduct. Accusations of student misconduct are handled by the Academic Standing Committee (1) if referred by the honor council after its review of alleged violations of the Student Code of Academic Integrity and Professional Responsibility or (2) for initial adjudication of alleged violations that fall under Part II below. The following is a list of the committee’s policies.
Part I: Academic Progress The Academic Standing Committee periodically reviews the progress of students and can place students on probation at any time. Students on probation may be dismissed from the college if they are not making satisfactory progress. The committee informs students by mail of its actions. Internship eligibility—Students who pass pharmacy practice courses (Phar 6111, 6112, 6171, 6172, 7001, and 7002) in the first year at the University of Minnesota and who are eligible to begin the second year of the Pharm.D. program are eligible to register as pharmacy interns with the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy. Students ineligible to register as an intern are not allowed to participate in Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPEs). For information on intern registration, visit the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy Web site, www.phcybrd.state .mn.us/mn_home.htm. Academic probation—Students are automatically placed on Academic Probation in the following circumstances: • Accumulating eight (8) or more credits of F, I, N, or D • Failing a required course in the first semester of the Pharm.D. program • Obtaining a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or below Terms of academic probation—Students on Academic Probation are reviewed by the
Academic Standing Committee, and are required to abide by the following rules. Failure of the student to abide by the terms of Academic Probation will result in dismissal from the College of Pharmacy. • Students on Academic Probation can be dismissed from the college if a grade below C- is earned. • Students are removed from Academic Probation when they successfully repeat all courses indicated by the committee. • Students may be required to seek academic assistance, complete incomplete courses within a certain time period, or pursue other forms of assistance to increase the likelihood of success. • Students placed on Academic Probation should expect the duration of their education to exceed four years. Dismissal from the College of Pharmacy— Students will be dismissed from the college in the following circumstances: • Failing a required course twice • Violating the terms of Academic Probation as set by the Academic Standing Committee • Accumulating eight (8) or more credits of F, I, N, or D in the first year of the Pharm.D. program • Withdrawing from a required course without college permission Failing a course— • Students who fail a course must repeat that course. Students who fail a required course twice will be dismissed from the college. • Students who repeat a course must reregister for the course. • Courses are normally offered during a given semester. Hence students who fail a course offered only in the spring semester can expect to repeat that course the following spring. • Since most courses are prerequisites for other courses in the program, students who fail a course should expect the
duration of their education to exceed four years. • All students who receive a grade below C- in Phar 6061—Systems Physiology for Pharmacy must successfully repeat that course before advancing to second-year courses. Students will assume the cost of retaking this course. Withdrawal from a course and extension of academic program—The Pharm.D. professional pharmacy program is a full-time continuous program. Students must request permission from the Academic Standing Committee to withdraw from a required course or depart from the curriculum of required courses in the Pharm.D. program. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from the college. Leaves of absence—Students must petition the Academic Standing Committee to request a leave of absence. Students must request a leave of absence if they will not be enrolled for a period of time in which required classes are scheduled. When a parttime schedule is granted, the committee will determine the program of study the student must follow. Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences— Students must satisfactorily complete all required and elective courses and have an overall GPA in them of at least 2.00 before beginning Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs). Students who earn an F or I in more than one APPE will be placed on probation or dismissed from the college. Students cannot make further progress toward the degree until making up at least one of the failed or incomplete APPEs. Appeals—Students who are dismissed from the college and wish to appeal must present information that was not available at the time of their dismissal and has a direct bearing on their academic performance. This information must be presented to the senior associate dean for professional education within four weeks of the dismissal
decision. If the senior associate dean decides the information is new and substantial, the Academic Standing Committee will reconsider the dismissal decision. Students who wish to be considered for readmission after the four-week period must apply through the admission application process.
3. The Academic Standing Committee’s decisions in matters of student misconduct may be appealed by the President’s Student Behavior Review Panel within 10 days of the decision.
Part II: Student Misconduct
1. This policy became effective fall 1997 for the Crookston, Morris, and Twin Cities campuses, replacing all previous grading policies. It may not be applied retroactively to any grades or symbols awarded before that time. 2. The University has two grading systems, A-B-C-D-F (with pluses and minuses) and S-N. Students may receive grades only from the grading system under which they have registered for a course. In addition, there are registration symbols that do not carry grade points or credit. 3. Instructors must clearly define for a class, at one of its earliest meetings, the performance necessary to earn each grade or symbol. 4. No student may receive a bachelor’s degree unless at least 75 percent of the degree-qualifying residence credits carry grades of A, B, C, or D (with or without pluses or minuses). Each campus, college, and department may choose not to accept academic work receiving a D (with or without a plus or minus). Each campus, college, and department determines to what extent and under what conditions each grading system is used, may specify what courses or proportion of courses must be on one system or the other, and may limit a course to either system. 5. When both grading systems are available, students must choose one when registering for a course. The choice may not be changed after the end of the second week of classes (the first week in summer terms).
1. Any behavior by a pharmacy student that reflects on the student’s qualifications or potential to become a competent and ethical professional is within the jurisdiction of the Academic Standing Committee to review. Aside from matters of academic integrity and professional responsibility in the classroom/clinic setting that are handled through the student honor system, the following behaviors constitute ground for discipline of students: a. Conduct that violates professional and or ethical standards, disrupts the operations of the University, College of Pharmacy or clinical training sites, or disregards the rights or welfare of patients, fellow students, college/ clinical staff or other individuals. b. Unlawful conduct or other improper behavior that impairs the student’s capacity to function as a health care professional. 2. When presented with an alleged violation of the above standards or when a matter of academic integrity/ professional responsibility is referred by the Honor Council, the Academic Standing Committee will hold a hearing to determine whether the alleged misconduct occurred. This hearing will comply with University standards for due process or fundamental fairness in a student disciplinary matter. Students who are found guilty of a violation by a preponderance of evidence will be subject to sanctions imposed by the committee, including but not limited to warning, required compliance, probation, suspension, or dismissal.
Grading and Transcript Policy
6. The University’s official transcript, the chronological record of the student’s enrollment and academic performance, is released by the University only at the student’s request or in accord with state or federal statutes; mailed copies have the University’s official seal printed on them. Students may obtain an unofficial transcript, except when they have a transcript hold on their record. 7. The University calculates for each student, both at the end of each grading period and cumulatively, a grade point average (GPA), the ratio of grade points earned divided by the number of credits earned with grades of A–F (including pluses and minuses). Both the periodic and cumulative GPA appear on each student’s record. 8. When a student repeats a course, all grades for the course appear on the transcript, the course credits may not be counted more than once toward degree and program requirements, and only the last enrollment for the course counts in the student’s GPA. 9. Students may petition the college scholastic committee or other appropriate body about this policy. 10. The following grades (with grade points as indicated) and symbols are used on transcripts. A ���� 4.00 �� Represents achievement that is outstanding relative to the level necessary to meet course requirements. A- ��� 3.67 B+ ��� 3.33 B ���� 3.00 ��� Represents achievement that is significantly above the level necessary to meet course requirements. B- ��� 2.67 C+ �� 2.33
C ���� 2.00 ��� Represents achievement that meets the course requirements in every respect. C- ��� 1.67 D+ �� 1.33 ���� The College of Pharmacy does not use the D+ grade. D ���� 1.00 ��� Represents achievement that is worthy of credit even though it fails fully to meet the course requirements. S ���� ����������� Represents achievement that is satisfactory (equivalent to a C- or higher and meets or exceeds course requirements in every respect). The S does not carry grade points and is not included in GPA calculations, but the credits count toward the student’s degree program if allowed by the department. F or N �������� Represents failure or no credit and indicates that coursework was completed but at an achievement level unworthy of credit, or was not completed and there was no agreement between the instructor and student that the student would be awarded an I. Academic dishonesty is grounds for an F or N for the course. The F carries 0.00 grade points and is included in GPA calculations; the N does not carry grade points and is not included in GPA calculations.
I ���� ����������� Incomplete, a temporary grade that indicates coursework has not been completed. The instructor assigns an I when, due to extraordinary circumstances, the student was prevented from completing coursework on time. An I requires a written agreement between the instructor and student specifying the time and manner in which the student will complete the course requirements during the student’s next term of enrollment. For undergraduates and adult special students, work to make up an I must be submitted within one year of the last final examination of the student’s next term of enrollment; if not submitted by that time, the I will automatically change to an F (if A–F registration) or N (if S-N registration). The instructor is expected to turn in the new grade within four weeks of the date work is submitted. When an I is changed to another symbol, the I is removed from the record. Once an I has become an F or N, it may be converted to any other grade by petition of the instructor (or department if the instructor is unavailable). K ���� ����������� Indicates the course is still in progress and a grade cannot be assigned at the present time. T ���� ����������� Transfer, a prefix to the original grade that indicates credits transferred from another institution or from one University college or campus to another.
V ���� ����������� Visitor, indicates registration as an auditor or visitor; does not carry credit or grade points. W �� ����������� Withdrawal, indicates a student has officially withdrawn from a course. Students in the College of Pharmacy may not withdraw from any course without action by the Academic Standing Committee. X ���� ����������� Indicates a student may continue in a sequence course in which a grade cannot be determined until the full sequence of courses is completed. The instructor submits a grade for each X when the student completes the sequence.
Attendance and Absence Policy Attendance Students are expected to attend every class for which they are registered. Students are expected to attend classes on the campus where they are enrolled. Instructors may choose to take attendance.
Absences 1. Students should contact the Office of Student Services (OSS) if they experience an illness or family emergency that prevents them from attending class. Twin Cities students should contact Peter Haeg at 612-624-2649 or OSS at 612-6249490. Duluth students should contact Ruth Leathers at 218-726-6003 or Katie Vukelich at 218-726-6038. 2. The Office of Student Services, in turn, informs the student’s instructors of the absence. 3. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with instructors to reschedule missed coursework or exams.
4. Only course directors have the prerogative of excusing absences. Therefore students need to procure documentation (e.g., a note from a physician) if the course director requires it. 5. Course directors should have clear and reasonable policies regarding absences on the course syllabus.
Campus Transfer Policy
Should there be multiple requests for transfers to a specific campus and class, and the above criteria are met, the administrators on both campuses will select the student for whom a transfer would most improve their ability to complete their education. All decisions regarding transfers will be made after each semester is over and cannot be appealed. The campus transfer request form must be submitted to the Office of Student Services by the last day of final exams.
Students admitted to the College of Pharmacy accept placement on a specific campus. The college expects students to honor the commitment they have made to the campus when they sign their letter of intent. Furthermore, the college admits the maximum number of students its facilities allow every year. It cannot be assumed that space is available on either campus. Transferring within the college from one campus to another is therefore rarely permitted.
The campus transfer request form and examples of transfer requests that have been approved and of those that have not been approved may be found at www.pharmacy. umn.edu/pharmd/admissions/policies.
The college realizes that under rare, specific circumstances, it may be in a student’s and the college’s best interests for a student to switch campuses. The following criteria must be met for a campus transfer request to be approved:
Chemical Dependency Policy
1. The enrollment maximum* is not met nor has been exceeded in a specific class and campus. 2. Neither campus would drop below its enrollment minimum* in the event of a transfer. 3. The student who requests a campus transfer must have completed at least one semester in the College of Pharmacy. 4. An opportunity exists in which at least one student from each campus desires to transfer to the other campus (so that there is a “trade” of students); OR the student requesting a transfer has serious, unforeseen circumstances that provide a compelling reason for a campus transfer.
*Enrollment maximum and enrollment minimum are determined by the dean in consultation with the senior associate dean for professional education and the senior associate dean on the Duluth campus.
The College of Pharmacy supports the efforts of chemically dependent students to become free of their dependency problems. In dealing with chemically dependent students, the college’s procedure involves intervention and requires students to join treatment and rehabilitation programs. The procedure ensures the safety of patients with whom students may come in contact and protects the interests of patients, students, the college, and faculty. The following steps are taken as soon as a student is identified as having chemical dependency problems. 1. The student is granted a medical leave of absence by the Academic Standing Committee if he or she is participating in educational activities that involve direct patient contact (e.g., clinical clerkships or externships). The request for a leave may be initiated by the student or the senior associate dean for professional education. Students participating in educational
activities that do not involve direct patient contact are not required to take a medical leave of absence. The senior associate dean advises the student to enroll in a chemical dependency treatment program or a different mode of treatment contingent on the senior associate dean’s approval. The student must provide evidence of successful completion of the treatment. The senior associate dean advises the student to join a sobriety support group, (e.g., Pharmacists Aiding Pharmacists) after completion of the treatment program. The student is asked to give the senior associate dean permission to solicit letters of reference from counselors, employers, or members of the sobriety support group to monitor the progress of the student’s rehabilitation program. The student is asked to agree to give urine samples at any time, without prior notification, for detection of drug abuse. The senior associate dean makes recommendations to the Academic Standing Committee to terminate the student’s medical leave of absence and allow the student to participate in educational activities that do not involve direct patient contact after obtaining evidence that the student has completed the treatment program and is participating in the rehabilitation program. The senior associate dean makes recommendations to the Academic Standing Committee to permit the student to participate in educational activities involving direct patient contact after obtaining evidence that the student has been chemically free for at least 10 weeks. If the student is a licensed pharmacist and her or his license was suspended because of chemical dependency, the State Board of Pharmacy lifting the suspension may be used as evidence of sobriety and is a prerequisite for participation in
educational activities involving direct patient contact. The license suspension being lifted does not obligate the college to allow the student to participate in educational activities that involve direct patient contact. 9. Office of Student Services staff members are not required to report to the Academic Standing Committee on students who initiate information about a personal chemical dependency problem while being counseled. Staff may report such information to the senior associate dean. 10. The Academic Standing Committee may dismiss from the college students who have a recurrence of chemical dependency problems after completing the treatment and rehabilitation program described above. 11. If the student and the senior associate dean do not reach an agreement on a treatment and rehabilitation program, either may request a hearing by the Academic Standing Committee. The committee carefully considers all relevant factors, using procedural due process as a guide to its action. The student may appeal the Academic Standing Committee’s decisions to the President’s Student Behavior Review Panel within 10 days of the decision.
Complaint Policy Students are encouraged to make every effort to solve problems informally, by working with their class representatives and class advisers, faculty members, and the Office of Student Services staff. If such efforts are not successful, students may submit a complaint to the college in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) Complaint Policy. For a statement of the ACPE complaint policy and procedures on how to file a complaint, refer to www.pharmacy.umn.edu/pharmd/ admissions/policies/complaint.
Course Waiver Policy A student may request a waiver of a course in the required curriculum by obtaining a Course Waiver Form from the Office of Student Services and then engaging in a discussion with the course director and section director (when appropriate) to identify supporting documents or other performance-related evidence (challenge exam, writing exercise, practice demonstrations, etc.) required to demonstrate competency in the subject area. A student’s request for a course waiver should begin well in advance of the beginning of the semester. In general, a course waiver must be initiated five days prior to the start of a course. Course directors can, however, grant specific exceptions. Students may have no more than four special examinations in pre-pharmacy coursework or course waivers in required pharmacy coursework. A course waiver remains in effect for six years from the date the course waiver form was signed.
University of Minnesota Sexual Harassment Policy Definitions—“Sexual harassment” means unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and/or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when: 1. submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment or academic advancement in any University activity or program; 2. submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis of employment or academic decisions affecting this individual in any University activity or program; or 3. such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or academic
environment in any University activity or program. “Member of the University community” or “University member” means any University of Minnesota faculty member, student, or staff member, or other individual engaged in any University activity or program. Prohibition—Sexual harassment by or toward a member of the University community is prohibited. Responsibility to Report—Department heads, deans, provosts, chancellors, vice presidents, and other supervisors and managers must take timely and appropriate action when they know or should know of the existence of sexual harassment. Other persons who suspect sexual harassment should report it to an appropriate person in their unit or to the University equal opportunity officer. Administrative Responsibility—Each campus must adopt procedures for investigating and resolving complaints of sexual harassment in coordination with the director of equal opportunity and affirmative action. Disciplinary Action—A violation of this policy may lead to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment or academic dismissal. Information and Reporting Procedures—For more information and reporting procedure, contact: Duluth: Director of the Office of Equal Opportunity, 218-726-6849, 269-273 Darland Administration Building, www.d.umn.edu/ umdoeo.

CPR Training Requirement The University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy requires all Pharm.D. students to have valid CPR certification upon entering the Pharm.D. program and to maintain that certification through graduation from the program. This certification must be either Basic Life Support for Health Care Providers (American Heart Association—two-year certification) or CPR for the Professional Rescuer (American Red Cross—one-year certification). This qualification ensures all students have demonstrated the skills necessary to respond during emergencies while participating in Early, Introductory, and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (EPPEs, IPPEs, APPEs) and internships. The Office of Student Services verifies all certificates of CPR training completion. Students who do not have current certification will have a registration hold placed on their record and will not be allowed to participate in required EPPEs, IPPEs, and APPEs.
Health Insurance Requirement All Academic Health Center (AHC) students are automatically enrolled in the AHC Student Health Benefit Plan (AHCSHBP). The plan may be waived for students who are enrolled in one of the following insurance plans: a United States-based employer-sponsored health plan, First Plan of Minnesota (for graduate students), or Minnesota Care. For more information, visit www.bhs.umn.edu/insurance/ahc.
and require health care organizations to create policies and procedures to implement the HIPAA regulations. In the Academic Health Center (AHC), students, faculty, and staff are required to complete HIPAA training. New students must complete HIPAA training upon entering the College of Pharmacy, before classes start in September. New students are notified by email to their University email accounts of HIPAA training assignments and how to access them. For more information, visit www.ahc.umn.edu /privacy/hipaa.
Immunization Requirement All College of Pharmacy students must be compliant with the Academic Health Center (AHC) immunizations policy. All students must submit immunization documentation, signed by a qualified health service provider, showing immunization of or immunity to Hepatitis B, Measles/Mumps/Rubella, Tetanus/Diptheria, Varicella (Chicken Pox), and Tuberculosis (with an initial two-step procedure).

Pharm.D. Curriculum The professional program’s graduates are prepared to enter pharmacy practice, advanced professional training programs, graduate education, and research. The program covers the chemical, biological, physical, social, and clinical sciences that underlie pharmacy. A common patient-care process is used to teach students how to meet drug-related needs at a patient-specific level. Students develop skills in problem solving, communication, and analytical thinking. The program emphasizes professional ethics, social responsibility, professional citizenship, and commitment to lifelong learning. The first three years of the curriculum provide the fundamental components of pharmacy education needed to practice in a variety of settings. Beginning in the second year, students can take elective courses in specific areas of interest to round out their required courses. Students may focus on research.
Experiential Education Experiential education refers to the practice component of the Pharm.D. program; it is where students apply what they learned in the didactic curriculum to pharmacy practice settings. The goal of experiential education is to enhance students’ attitudes, skills, and knowledge to prepare them to provide pharmaceutical care. Experiential education is made up of Early and Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (EPPEs and IPPEs); and
Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPEs). The components of EPPEs and IPPEs are: Early Pharmacy Education with Community Teachers (EPhECT)—Phar 7001, 7002, 7003, 7004 Pharmacist mentoring program—Phar 7001, 7002 Introductory Community-Practice Pharmacy Experience—Phar 7005 Introductory Institutional-Practice Pharmacy Experience—Phar 7006 Pharmaceutical Care Clinic (PCC) APPEs are completed in the fourth year of the Pharm.D. program. Eight five-week experiences are required in which students learn and apply advanced practice skills in clinical and non-clinical settings, ranging from hospitals and community pharmacies to government agencies and ambulatory clinics. Sites for IPPEs and APPEs are available throughout Minnesota. Students have the opportunity to experience pharmacy practice in both urban and rural settings. The curriculum is subject to change.

Research Emphasis The research emphasis provides students the opportunity to participate in research and prepares them for graduate education. Students plan individualized programs with faculty advisers.
Pharm.D./M.B.A. Dual Degree The Pharm.D./M.B.A. dual degree program was developed for students who are enrolled in the University of Minnesota Pharm.D. program. It serves students who wish to earn a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) as well as the Pharm.D. The dual degree program enables students to complete two degrees in less time than pursuing the Pharm.D. and M.B.A. degrees separately. The dual degree program is completed in five years. Students in the program carry a very demanding course load. Students must be in good standing academically. Students apply to the full-time M.B.A. program in the Carlson School of Management (CSOM) during fall semester of their third year in the Pharm.D. program, but do not begin the M.B.A. until the fourth year. After acceptance to the dual degree program, students meet with a Pharm.D. adviser and an M.B.A. adviser to ensure their study plans satisfy both degree requirements.
