Rotation Objectives

Information Regarding Rotation Objectives

The rotation objectives described for each rotation are intended to aid the preceptor in developing an activity list for the student and in evaluating the student's performance at the end of the rotation. Additionally, the objectives are intended to guide the student in preparation for the rotation and guide the student's learning during the rotation

  • Each preceptor is encouraged to develop his/her own rotation objectives, which will provide more in-depth objectives than those listed for each rotation.
  • If a preceptor wishes to develop his/her own objectives, a copy of the syllabus must be approved and available in the office of experiential education at Ohio Northern University Raabe College of Pharmacy prior to the acceptance of students on rotations.
