PharmD Curriculum Philosophy

The Creighton PharmD curriculum is designed to provide knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes and values to deliver patient-centered care. As a graduate, you will be able to provide care in collaboration with patients, prescribers, other healthcare providers and the community based upon sound therapeutic principles, evidence-based data and research. The curricular outcomes support our mission and vision for graduates to be nationally recognized for excellence in comprehensive patient-centered care and responsible citizenship and leadership.

The content, skills and outcomes of the curriculum are purposefully structured around a spiraling Introduce-Reinforce-Demonstrate (IRD) curricular model. The IRD model builds competence by structuring knowledge acquisition in a purposefully integrated cycle of increasing complexity. Each course identifies specific learning objectives that are tied to the relevant educational outcomes and denotes competencies to be introduced (I), reinforced (R) and/or demonstrated (D). In this way, the IRD model aligns instruction with desired goals and program outcomes.
