The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) has published a new text to help pharmacy students get the most benefit from their rotations.  Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP’s Student Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond, by Mate M. Soric, Pharm.D., BCPS, is the first text designed to help guide students in the best way to prepare and make the most of these important experiences.

Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP’s Student Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond breaks down everything students need to know into easy-to-navigate chapters. The text explores the skills required to excel while on Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience (IPPE) or Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) rotations, along with competencies that may be unique to one type of rotation or another. Each chapter is written by an experienced preceptor, lending a valuable perspective.
By using this text, students will gain an appreciation of the general expectations and typical activities of each rotation experience before they begin. Maximize Your Rotations is also a useful resource throughout the experiential year, offering everything from reminders of clinical issues and statistical reviews to advice on interviewing, CV writing, professional organizations, and more.
