    ABSTRACT: Objective. To design and assess a horizontally integrated biological sciences course sequence and to determine its effectiveness in imparting the foundational science knowledge necessary to successfully progress through the pharmacy school curriculum and produce competent pharmacy school graduates. Design. A two semester course sequence integrated principles from several basic science disciplines: biochemistry, molecular biology, cellular biology, anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology. Each is a 5-credit course taught 5 days per week with 50-minute class periods. Assessment. Achievement of outcomes was determined by course examinations, student lecture, and an Annual Skills Mastery Assessment. The NAPLEX results were used as an indicator of competency to practice pharmacy. Conclusion. Students achieved course objectives and program level outcomes. The Biological Sciences Integrated course sequence was successful in imparting the foundational basic science knowledge required to progress through the pharmacy program and to pass the NAPLEX. The percentage of WUSOP students who passed the NAPLEX was not statistically different from the national percentage.

    ABSTRACT: Objective. To evaluate the feasibility of an online training module, Certified Smoking Cessation Service Provider (CSCSP), developed for practicing pharmacists to equip pharmacy students with knowledge necessary for smoking cessation counseling and to assess the changes in student knowledge and skills regarding smoking cessation following training. Design. Sixty third-year and 80 fourth-year pharmacy undergraduates (N=140) were given access to an online module, the main intervention in the study. Two linkable questionnaires were administered to assess students' preintervention and postintervention knowledge. For the third-year students, an additional role-play training component was incorporated, and student skills were assessed during week 14 with an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). Assessment. Preintervention and postintervention knowledge assessments were completed by 130 (92.8%) students. Sixty-six students scored above 50% for the knowledge component postintervention, compared to 13 at preintervention, demonstrating significant improvement (x2(1, N=130)=32, p=0.003). All third-year students completed the intervention, and 66.7% were able to counsel excellently for smoking cessation, scoring more than 80%. Conclusion. The CSCSP online module developed for practicing professionals was found suitable for equipping pharmacy undergraduates with knowledge on smoking cessation topics. The module, along with role-play training, also equipped students with knowledge and skills to provide smoking cessation counseling.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: To improve pharmacy students' ability to effectively incorporate a computer into a simulated patient encounter and to improve their awareness of barriers and attitudes towards and their confidence in using a computer during simulated patient encounters. Design: Students completed a survey that assessed their awareness of, confidence in, and attitudes towards computer use during simulated patient encounters. Students were evaluated with a rubric on their ability to incorporate a computer into a simulated patient encounter. Students were resurveyed and reevaluated after instruction. Assessment: Students improved in their ability to effectively incorporate computer usage into a simulated patient encounter. They also became more aware of and improved their attitudes toward barriers regarding such usage and gained more confidence in their ability to use a computer during simulated patient encounters. Conclusion: Instruction can improve pharmacy students' ability to incorporate a computer into simulated patient encounters. This skill is critical to developing efficiency while maintaining rapport with patients.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: To evaluate pharmacy student perceptions of team-based learning (TBL) vs traditional lecture-based learning formats. Methods: First professional year pharmacy students (N=111) at two universities used TBL in different courses during different semesters (fall vs spring). Students completed a 22-item team perceptions instrument before and after the fall semester. A 14-item teaching style preference instrument was completed at the end of the spring semester. Data were analyzed using Wilcoxon signed rank test and Mann-Whitney U test. Results: Students who experienced TBL in the fall and went back to traditional format in the spring reported improved perceptions of teams and preferred TBL format over a traditional format more than students who experienced a traditional format followed by TBL. Students at both universities agreed that the TBL format assists with critical-thinking, problem-solving, and examination preparation. Students also agreed that teams should consist of individuals with different personalities and learning styles. Conclusion: When building teams, faculty members should consider ways to diversify teams by considering different views, perspectives, and strengths. Offering TBL early in the curriculum prior to traditional lecture-based formats is better received by students, as evidenced by anecdotal reports from students possibly because it allows students time to realize the benefits and assist them in building teamwork-related skills.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: To describe the development, implementation, and evaluation of the multiple mini-interview (MMI) within a doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) admissions model. Methods: Demographic data and academic indicators were collected for all candidates who participated in Candidates' Day (n=253), along with the score for each MMI station criteria (7 stations). A survey was administered to all candidates who completed the MMI, and another survey was administered to all interviewers to examine perceptions of the MMI. Results: Analyses suggest that MMI stations assessed different attributes as designed, with Cronbach alpha for each station ranging from 0.90 to 0.95. All correlations between MMI station scores and academic indicators were negligible. No significant differences in average station scores were found based on age, gender, or race. Conclusion: This study provides additional support for the use of the MMI as an admissions tool in pharmacy education.

    ABSTRACT: Objective: To examine pharmacy students' attitudes toward debt. Methods: Two hundred thirteen pharmacy students at the University of Minnesota were surveyed using items designed to assess attitudes toward debt. Factor analysis was performed to identify common themes. Subgroup analysis was performed to examine whether students' debt-tolerant attitudes varied according to their demographic characteristics, past loan experience, monthly income, and workload. Results: Principal component extraction with varimax rotation identified 3 factor themes accounting for 49.0% of the total variance: tolerant attitudes toward debt (23.5%); contemplation and knowledge about loans (14.3%); and fear of debt (11.2%). Tolerant attitudes toward debt were higher if students were white or if they had had past loan experience. Conclusion: These 3 themes in students' attitudes toward debt were consistent with those identified in previous research. Pharmacy schools should consider providing a structured financial education to improve student management of debt.
