PHA 6935 Capstone Course
The course is intended to give students hands on practice in providing MTM services through the design and implementation of an MTM practice project. The project, conceptualized in the Foundations II course, is longitudinal in nature and students refine and develop the project as they progress through the curriculum. The goal of the project is to provide an opportunity for students to apply and synthesize the advanced pharmacotherapy knowledge, communication skills, and MTM business principles learned in other courses in the curriculum.
The student must have successfully completed all required courses in the MS-MTM degree program.
This online course, in conjunction with the final exam, is tailored for asynchronous distance learners.
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to demonstrate the ability to perform the following:
- Assess the need for MTM services in a given practice setting.
- Design an MTM patient care service to meet stakeholder needs.
- Create an MTM business proposal for an MTM patient care service.
