Abstract:

Objectives: The Curriculum Committee is in the process of reviewing the curriculum and ACPE Standards to determine the best method for approaching necessary curricular changes. To inform that process, the Committee surveyed other colleges of pharmacy to determine how they approached curricular revision, factors influencing revision decisions, and how they are ensuring compliance with ACPE Standards.
Methods: An e-mail was sent to 47 Curriculum Committee Chairs at other colleges of pharmacy. Recipients were asked to complete an on-line 13 question survey. Responses were voluntary and anonymous.
Results: The response rate was 34% (n=16). Respondents indicate the last major revision to their curriculum took place 5 or more years ago (44%) and the change was prompted by accreditation requirements (50%). Also, 62.5% will modify their existing curricula, 12.5% will develop a new curriculum, 12.5% will leave the curriculum alone, and 12.5% are unsure of the extent of changes. The faculty-led Curriculum Committee is responsible for curricular revision (94%). Barriers to curricular change include faculty workload (50%), lack of faculty acceptance of proposals for change (37.5%), and vacancies in key development or decision making positions (19%).
Implications: Recently revised ACPE curriculum standards are a driving force leading many schools of pharmacy to re-evaluate their curriculum for the first time in a number of years. Former proactive curricular revisions have served schools well as they now consider the ACPE Standards. Support for faculty in terms of standards review and workload considerations should be considered during this process.
