Abstract

The four-year endeavor of a college evaluation committee in creating and incorporating the use of a learning outcomes document in a Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum is chronicled. The committee's activities are detailed with particular attention given to the sources reviewed, approaches taken, and materials developed. The final product is titled, "Outcomes Expected of Graduates of the Doctor of Pharmacy Program." The document contains 18 competency statements with 47 associated components across the following five domains: (i) patient care - ensuring appropriate therapy and outcomes; (ii) dispensing medications and devices; (iii) health promotion and disease prevention; (iv) professionalism; and (v) health systems management. General ability-based outcomes such as thinking, communication, and self-learning are embedded throughout the professional practice-based outcomes. Current applications of the competency document such as guiding students in writing reflective reports, documenting activities in the experiential component of the curriculum, and a curriculum mapping project with course coordinators are presented and potential future applications explored.
