There will be NO on-campus face-to-face instruction for P1, P2 and P3 students for the remainder of this academic year.
An additional March 24 communication addresses APPE rotations, noting, “The evolving situation that is the COVID-19 response has led to a series of challenges to student life, particularly upon your class by nature of APPE rotations. The current guidance from ACPE remains that practice experience hours must be completed prior to graduation, but some flexibility exists through opportunities for virtual learning and telehealth. Additional detailed guidance and options for P4 APPE Rotations is included.
