Faculty/College/Unit Pharmaceutical Sciences
Status Active
Duration 3 Years
Initiation 04/01/2017
Project Summary

Students who teach enhance their own learning. The importance of student educator roles has led professional organizations such as the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada (AFPC), to identify educating skills as a competency outcome. There is an increasing need for educational programs to support and develop pharmacy students as educators. Other professional programs have developed courses with a variety of approaches and assessments of educating such as UBC’s undergraduate medical program. The current proposal builds on this work and aims to develop, implement, and evaluate a modular, scalable, longitudinal ‘pharmacy students as educators’ (PHASE) program that is developmentally appropriate across all years. The PHASE program will allow faculty to implement various educator modules targeted for pharmacy students. It will provide a standardized, developmental curriculum that is responsive to the pedagogical needs, competencies, and roles of students as educators across several years of the program.
