ACPE Standards 2016
The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education draft Standards are designed to ensure that graduates of pharmacy education programs are practice-ready and team-ready – prepared to directly contribute to patient care and collaborate with other healthcare providers. They focus on the educational outcomes required of PharmD programs and the assessment of those outcomes. They also address structural and process-related elements within pharmacy education that are necessary to implement evidence-based outcome measures and document achievement of the standards.
