Work-learn positions available for E2P PharmD students!

We are seeking three students who are interested in joining the Entry-to-Practice (E2P) PharmD program team as project assistants to help review its curriculum and assessment approach following experiences during COVID. Since March 2020, UBC has been delivering its Entry-to-Practice PharmD program in a predominantly virtual format during the COVID-19 pandemic. During that time our Faculty has learned a lot about educational activities that work well in a non-traditional format. Rather than returning entirely to our previous teaching approach, we are planning to use this unprecedented experience to support us in our move to a “post-COVID program”. This could include the ongoing use of a mix of asynchronous/synchronous modalities or the broader use of resources not used previously. These work-learn student positions will support data generation/collection that, combined with other evidence, will inform our decision-making to develop the most pedagogically sound principles for program-wide curricular change. This also aligns with our mission to improve the program on an ongoing basis to support student learning and accreditation requirements. If the formal review is completed prior to the project term then there will be opportunities to get involved in other aspects of the project. The undergraduate students will work closely with the Special Projects Manager and faculty members.

If you are interested in applying please submit an application through the work-learn portal  https://students.ubc.ca/career/ubc-experiences/work-learn-program for the posting titled:  WL W21 Curriculum Review Program Assistant (E2P PharmD). Applications close on August 13. Due to the nature of the role, it is important that these individuals experienced the online curriculum of the 2021 Winter Session (i.e., were not on leave or away from studies for any other reason). If you have questions please contact Leonie Harper, Special Projects Manager (leonie.harper@ubc.ca).
