The other seven clerkships are Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) and occur during the P4 year. All APPEs are assigned a final letter grade. All students are required to complete at least one experience within a medically underserved/rural area. This may be completed as either an IPPE or APPE.
