II. General Guidelines and Rules

          A. See attached calendar of events and deadlines for the year.

          B. No guarantees can be made with regards to choice of rotation sites/preceptors, electives or
          times requested!

          C. All students must submit their rotation requests to us by November 19, 2010. The requests
          may be submitted from November 5 to November 19, 2010.

          Go to E*Value either via the experiential website or directly:
                       Experiential web site: http://spahp.creighton.edu/experiential, Choose E*Value in
                          right hand body of the home page.
                       Directly at https://www.E-Value.net
          Log into E*Value with the Login Name and Password that were emailed to you. You may wish to
          change your login name and password. Follow this menu path to change these: Home > Password
          Change > follow prompts. Your ID and password may both be changed from the same screen but
          they must be changed one at a time. If at any time you do not remember your password, please
          contact the experiential office and we will email it to you. You will then need to follow the step-by-
          step instructions about how to enter your rotation requests. Instructions for submission of your
          requests are listed on the ―P-3 Orientation: Submission of Rotation Requests‖ handout.

          D. Local students should expect to be assigned to at least one rotation that is located outside of, but
          adjacent to, the Omaha/Council Bluffs area (i.e., Lincoln, Blair, Atlantic, Nebraska City). Please
          note that these are considered within driving distance.

          E. The student is responsible for transportation to all sites, including out-of-town sites.

          F. The student is responsible for housing during all rotations, including out-of-town rotations.
          There are a few sites that may have housing available. The function to search for housing is
          currently not available in E*Value, so for those interested in viewing which sites have housing,
          please log-in to EMS, select the ‗Search Preceptor/Sites‖ icon, select ‗yes‘ for ‗Housing Available‘
          and select ‗Search.‘ Please contact Kathy Widman in the experiential office if you have any
          questions. You may also want to speak to friends, relatives, and classmates in areas where you
          know rotations are more readily available to determine if you could stay with them for a rotation.
G. The student is responsible for obtaining and paying for any tests and additional checks that
the site requires above and beyond what Creighton performs. This includes required drug tests,
any additional background checks the site requires, parking fees, etc. Site requirements are listed in
E*Value under the following menu path: Reports > Sites > Listing > Site Report. Select site and
under Custom Fields, Add Site Directions to Selected Fields, click on Next. Site requirements
will appear in the table that comes up. Check with the preceptor for any additional requirements the
site may have when you call two weeks before the start of the rotation. Please contact Kathy Stuhr
in the Experiential Office to inform her of any additional requirements so they can be added to the

H. In accordance with ACPE standards and guidelines, students shall not receive nor expect any
financial compensation, reimbursement, or stipends for rotation experiences.

I. If a site is located outside of Nebraska, the student is responsible for obtaining an intern
license for that state. The student will need to contact that particular state‘s Board of Pharmacy to
find out how to obtain an intern license for that state. Contact information for all the state Boards of
Pharmacy can be found on the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy web site

J. Students must comply with all of the information in the ‘Experiential Education
Participation Requirements’ policy. This policy can be found on the school‘s web site.
(http://spahp.creighton.edu/spahp/student_affairs/policies/school_policies/experiential.asp )
These requirements include:
          All of your required and elective didactic coursework must be completed and grades
            recorded three weeks prior to starting rotations.
          You must be up-to-date with all immunizations with student health and include this
            information on the ―Student Profile‖ form submitted to our office by March 25,
          You must have current CPR certification.
          You must have a background criminal record check.
          Registration holds must be cleared three weeks prior to starting rotations. Students
            with registration holds will not be allowed on rotations.

K. All students need to receive a Background Check prior to starting rotations. The form that
gives authorization and needed information for the background check is due to our office by
March 25, 2011. Distance Students: An email will be sent to you with the form for you to sign prior
to the deadline. You will need to mail, fax, or scan it as an attachment back to us with your
signature by March 25, 2011. Campus Students: Your form will be e-mailed to you and returned
during a PPD session.

L. All students need to submit a ―Student Profile‖ form by March 25, 2011. The student profile
form is given to each preceptor at the beginning of the rotation year and includes information about
your immunizations and CPR certification that the sites require. Any student who does not submit
the Student Profile form by March 25th will lose his/her rotation sites that have been scheduled and
will not be able to start rotations.

M. Students cannot ―schedule themselves‖ with any site or preceptor. The student should not
contact any current preceptors already in our Creighton database about scheduling of a rotation. The
Office of Experiential Education (OEE) will contact the sites for scheduling of the rotations.
          N. The OEE does all scheduling only after (a) all sites and preceptors have been approved and site
          availability has been confirmed; and (b) consideration of all preceptor and student needs and

          O. Please note unique instructions below for requests regarding the following sites:

              1. For anyone wanting to complete a rotation at a CVS pharmacy location that is not in our
              database, do NOT fill out a new site form. Obtain the store contact information and enter it
              into the E*Value system by following this menu path: User Menu > Scheduling > Manage
              Schedule. Fill out the required information – course/rotation type, dates, select ‗new site‘, select
              ‗new preceptor‘. Then, in the comments section give us the store name and store # (if known),
              store address, and phone number. If you know who the preceptor is, please list them also.

              2. For anyone wanting to complete a rotation at any Longs in Hawaii, in E*Value follow this
              menu path: User Menu > Scheduling > Manage Schedule. Fill out the required information –
              course/rotation type, dates, select Longs Drug Pharmacy in Honolulu, HI, select Deanne Kaopua.
              Then, in the comments section give us the address of the place you will be staying in Hawaii.
              We will then forward the information to their representative who will try to assign you to a store
              near your location.

              3. For chain pharmacy rotations that are not in our database (new sites), please contact the local
              store to obtain their information to submit on the new site form. Do NOT contact the district
              manager unless the pharmacist asks you to do so. (See directions above for new CVS rotations
              and Longs rotations in Hawaii).

          P. Students cannot do a rotation in the same area of an institution where they are currently working.
          They can do rotations, if approved, in different areas of the same institution.

          Q. Students cannot do a rotation with preceptors or sites where a conflict of interest exists with the
          site or preceptor. (e.g., preceptor is spouse, relative, etc…; site: financial interest).

          R. A preliminary draft of the 2011-2012 schedule will be posted in the E*Value system by March
          1st and be viewable until March 8th, 2011. The final schedule will be posted on May 1st, 2011.

          S. The OEE will do our best to provide the best educational experience possible; however, no
          guarantees can be made concerning student requests.

III. How to Request a Site that is not already in our database (A New Site)

          A. The student should contact the potential site and preceptor (this is usually the Director of
          Pharmacy or the Pharmacy Manager) to see if they are willing to take a student.
             1. See if you can make an appointment to meet with them face-to-face or speak to them on the
             2. If you make an appointment with them, be sure to dress professionally and take a Pharmacy
             Experiential Brochure and New Site Request Form with you to give to the preceptor.

          B. The student should introduce him/herself and state that they are a pharmacy student from
          Creighton University and would like to know if it is possible to do a rotation at that site. If visiting
          with them face-to-face, give them a Pharmacy Experiential Brochure to review during the

          C. When the student is finished with the discussion, regardless of whether they agree or disagree to
          precept the student, the student should thank them for their time. If they are unable to precept the
student, the student should ask them if they have any ideas for other sites that they think may offer
quality experiential rotations for pharmacy students.

D. If the preceptor is interested and willing to take you as a student, you will need to obtain
information for the ―New Rotation Site Request Form.‖ You can either ask them for the information
over the phone to fill it out, obtain it in person, or have the preceptor fill it out and send it back to
you. If the preceptor is too busy at that time to fill it out, many students have given the preceptor a
self-addressed, stamped envelope to mail the form back to them at their convenience. You should
give them a deadline earlier than the submission deadline so that they get it back to you in a timely
fashion. You will then need to submit the form online during the preferences submission dates.

E. Many students have found it quite useful to send a follow-up ‗thank you‘ letter to sites that have
met with them concerning rotation opportunities. If you spoke with them over the phone and didn‘t
give them a Pharmacy Experiential Brochure, the brochure could also be included with the thank you
letter. Sites appreciate this and positive networking will be very important to you throughout your
pharmacy career!

F. For new sites that agree to precept you as a student, you will need to submit a ―New Site
Request‖ form via the web by November 19th, 2010 to request the site.

G. Once the preceptor information has been received, the information that was submitted will be
reviewed. In January, Dr. Skrabal will begin contacting the potential preceptors and ask additional
questions to determine if it is a quality site and preceptor.

H. If it is a quality site and preceptor, the dates will be confirmed and an Affiliation Agreement will
be sent to the site for signatures and then will need to be sent back to the OEE. The rotation will be
entered into your schedule.

I. The student will be notified via email of denial of any new site request so it is very important
that you are regularly checking and responding to email during this process.

J. Frequently asked questions from new sites:

   What if the preceptor tells me that they have only taken local students in the past?

    If the preceptor at the institution states that they routinely have only taken students from a local
    school or college of pharmacy, explain that you are from the local area and may be practicing in
    that area and are interested in completing rotations there. If they are willing to take you as a
    student, submit a new rotation site request form and we will contact them to officially consider
    the site for approval and determine what place in the schedule works best for them.

   What if the preceptor tells me that they prefer to schedule all students through the local
    school/college of pharmacy?

    If the preceptor prefers that they only go through the local college of pharmacy for all of their
    students and also agree to take you if we contact that local school, we will contact them. We
    contact local colleges/schools of pharmacy only as a last resort because they are very busy
    scheduling their own students. Their priority is their students and there is no guarantee that there
    will be openings left for placement of outside students.
            What if the preceptor tells me that they need a contract with the school before they are
             willing to take an outside student?

             Once the site has been approved, we will send the site/preceptor an Affiliation Agreement, which
             is a contract that covers all the legal aspects of having a Creighton student at their site for a
             rotation. We require this of all of our sites. If the preceptor has any questions about it we can
             contact them to discuss it.

IV. General Advice in Choosing Elective Rotations

      A. Base your selections on career goals and the type of rotation rather than what your friends are
         doing/saying about a particular site/preceptor. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dr.
         Skrabal at any time.

      B. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about pharmacy practice in various settings—you will
         never get this opportunity again!

      C. If you plan to do a residency/fellowship/post-graduate education:
              choose a variety of solid, clinical rotations (e.g., cardiology, infectious disease, kinetics,
                  oncology, psychiatry, critical care, etc.)
              if the residency program emphasizes a research project or teaching pharmacy students, a
                  research or an academic rotation may be helpful
              do not choose two community or two hospital rotations—this looks very weak on your CV

      D. If you plan to work in a hospital setting (staff or clinical pharmacist):
              choose a variety of clinical rotations in the hospital or other settings
              choose pharmacokinetics, since the vast majority of hospital pharmacists are responsible for
                  pharmacokinetic monitoring
              the home care rotation may be helpful, since some hospitals also have a home care section
                  and some hospital pharmacists move on to home care later in their career
              do not choose two hospital rotations—this looks weak on your CV—take advantage of the
                  opportunity to see various settings—you will have plenty of time to work in the centralized
                  pharmacy setting after you graduate

      E. If you plan to work in a community setting:
              choose a variety of clinical rotations that pertain to common disease-states that a community
                  pharmacist will fill prescriptions for (e.g., cardiology, psychiatry, etc.)
              managed care may be helpful, since you will learn about the world of managed care and
                  third-party reimbursement from the ―third party‖ perspective
              a second ambulatory care rotation will help enhance your communication skills, expose you
                  to common disease states, as well as expose you to the ―other side‖ of the prescription
              if you want to move into an administrative position (chief pharmacist or owning your own
                  pharmacy) someday, community management will be helpful
              do not choose two routine community rotations—take advantage of the opportunity to see
                  various settings—you will have plenty of time to work in the community pharmacy setting
                  after you graduate
              choose a compounding community pharmacy to learn about the compounding aspects of
       F. If you plan to work as a consultant pharmacist in the nursing home setting:
               choose a variety of clinical rotations that pertain to common disease-states that are found in
                   the elderly (e.g., cardiology, psychiatry, oncology, kinetics, etc.)
               choose a long term care rotation to see what nursing home consultant pharmacists do

       G. If you plan to work as an ambulatory care pharmacist:
               choose a variety of clinical rotations that pertain to common disease-states (e.g., cardiology,
                   psychiatry, etc.)
               choose a second ambulatory care rotation to expose you to a different ambulatory care
                   setting than the required ambulatory care rotation (we offer the V.A., Indian Health Service,
                   private clinic (St. Joseph), and a managed care clinic (Kaiser)
               managed care may be helpful to expose you to the world of managed care and third-party
                   reimbursement from the ―third party‖ perspective

       H. If you don‘t know what you want/plan to do:
               choose a variety of clinical rotations that pertain to common disease-states (e.g., cardiology,
                  oncology, critical care, etc.)—chances are high that you will work with these diseases or
                  medications no matter what you end up doing
               choose various settings (e.g., hospital, ambulatory, managed care, home care, etc.) to see
                  what you like and don‘t like
               take advantage of learning about various types of pharmacy practice—you will never get
                  this opportunity again
               as you progress through your rotations, ask your preceptors for the pros and cons of his or
                  her job (be careful about asking questions that are too personal, e.g., his/her salary)

V.     Small Group Sessions

       A.      All students are scheduled for small group sessions with Dr. Skrabal and Kathy Widman while
               on campus in July.

       B.      The purpose of these sessions is to:

                  Discuss career goals/work experience and personal circumstances.
                  Answer questions concerning scheduling of rotations, finding sites, and any other matters
                   pertaining to your rotation year.

If you have any questions about rotations (e.g., selecting electives, scheduling, etc.), please contact either Kathy
Widman (402-280-3664 or kwidman@creighton.edu) or Dr. Skrabal (402-280-5834 or
