Curriculum Committee

Membership of the Curriculum Committee shall consist of at least six faculty members, an alumnus, two students, one practicing pharmacist, and the senior associate dean for academic affairs (ex officio). The primary functions of the Committee include:

  1. Implementing the professional curriculum policy approved by the faculty
  2. Providing ongoing evaluation and development of the professional curriculum and recommendations for updating it to the faculty
  3. Fostering the highest quality experiential education in the professional program and specifically to review and recommend policies, standards, and development of practice sites, preceptors, and students
  4. Assessing the needs and utilization of technology equipment, services, and training for education
  5. Cooperating with the Graduate Affairs Committee in the appropriate coordination of the professional and graduate curricula.

Annual Charges to the Committee:

  1. Review all core professional courses at least every three years per curriculum committee policy; specifically during this academic year review the P-2 professional curriculum using the committee’s established review methods.
  2. Review and make recommendations concerning proposals for new elective courses, changes to existing courses, and curriculum innovations.
  3. Develop policies related to the delivery of the curriculum as assigned.
  4. Provide recommendations to incorporate health informatics content and/or activities into the professional curriculum, with a focus on the P-1 course PHAR 7712 Drug Information Systems and the P-3 course PHAR 7812 Drug Literature Evaluation.
  5. Determine where the details of the JCPP Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process are presented in the professional program didactic and experiential curriculum, and if not explicitly presented, determine where in the professional didactic curriculum this content may be presented and potentially practiced.
  6. Develop a survey for preceptors of current APPE coursework to determine where intentional interprofessional activities are included and create a map of these activities.
  7. Evaluate and propose revisions to the seminar course to address issues arising from our program modification on the Tulsa campus.  Specifically, the review should address the following questions:  (1) should the course be taught at distance or not, (2) could a majority of the course be packaged and delivered in May prior to P-4 students beginning APPEs in June, and (3) could the required seminars be delivered to preceptors, other students, and other health care providers as part of assigned APPE rotations and not at a separately defined time on Thursday afternoons?
