The increasing number of pharmacy schools and therefore, number of pharmacy students needed to be accommodated on clinical rotations has placed a strain on institutions who have their own increased institutional requirements. This combined with the need to have an advanced level of pharmacy practice requires students performing at a higher skill level and competency. This session will provide guidance on how to successfully accommodate the increased demand of students in the clinical setting, achieve goals and priorities of the health care institutions, and address concerns of individual problematic student learners and utilization in the clinical setting.
