Comprehensive Progression Exam

In Spring 2004, the Doctor of Pharmacy program implemented Comprehensive Progression Examinations in the first, second and third professional years of the curriculum. These exams represent content from required courses that is crucial to carry forward to the next professional year. These exams are a progression requirement for movement to the next professional year.

The exams serve several purposes:

  1. To assess learning and retention of content by students.
  2. To assess preparedness for the next academic year.
  3. To develop a culture of self-assessment among students.
