Abstract:

Objective: To enable fourth-year pharmacy students to be employed as Pharmacist-in-Charge (PIC) upon graduation.
Methods: Many students are offered the opportunity to become a Pharmacist in Charge (PIC) soon after graduation. Those graduates often feel intimidated by PIC duties and legal responsibilities. A weeklong (20 lecture-hours) program was developed to address the specific requirements and misconceptions of being a PIC. The program was imbedded in a 12 week elective designed to expose students to advanced pharmacy practice in the anticipated focus of employment. Topics include: advanced and new law review, legal and ethical case studies, policies for compliance with current regulations and preparedness for state board inspections. A survey was completed on the final day of class to assess the student perception of PIC duties.
Results: Twenty-nine soon-to-graduate students completed the survey. Prior to the course, 14 of 29 students (48.2%) said they would not accept a position as PIC. Nine (20.6%) said they would accept a position. Six students (20.6%) had no opinion. After completion of the PIC review course, 21 of 29 students (72.4%) said they would be willing to accept a position as PIC and only 2 of 29 (6.9%) said they would not. Six students (20.6%) had no opinion.
Implications: Pharmacy students receive an abundance of clinical training during their pharmacy education, while legal and ethical issues may be lacking. Providing a review course focused on PIC duties and responsibilities improves their confidence level and potentially gives them the opportunity to become a Pharmacist-in-Charge after graduation.
