Successful pharmacy careers begin with successful rotations - and successful rotations start with this guide.

Although rotations are crucial to the development of skills needed to practice pharmacy, there has been little available to guide students in the best way to prepare and make the most of these experiences - until now.

Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP's Student Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond breaks down everything you need to know into easy-to-navigate chapters. Inside you will find the skills required to excel while on IPPE or APPE rotations, along with competencies that may be unique to one type of rotation or another.

Each chapter is written by an experienced preceptor, lending a valuable perspective. By using this text, you will gain an appreciation of the general expectations and typical activities of each rotation experience before you begin. Better preparation means better performance. Maximize Your Rotations will also be a resource throughout the experiential year, offering everything from reminders of clinical issues and statistical reviews to advice on interviewing, CV writing, professional organizations, and more.

Maximize Your Rotations means less time getting up to speed - and more time getting ahead in your career. Your rotation experience can be the launching pad for your career, and there's no better guide than Maximize Your Rotations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
**Description**
This book provides a clear and concise overview of what pharmacy students can
expect when they begin their IPPE and APPE rotations. The first part, "The
Essentials," covers the basics a student should be proficient in prior to
beginning their rotation experience; part II, "The Particulars," further
explains the specifics of varying rotation sites and the skills necessary to be
successful; and part III, "Life After Rotations," covers the transition from
student to pharmacist.
**Purpose**
The purpose is to give pharmacy students a place to turn to for all things
experiential. The book provides a glimpse of the general expectations and
typical activities of rotations before they begin, allowing for better
preparation and performance. Although the purpose seems simple, the objectives
are important to pharmacy students and pharmacists who act as, or plan to
become, preceptors. Students may have many questions and concerns prior to
beginning an IPPE or an APPE rotation, and the majority are not necessarily
covered in the traditional classroom setting. The book will have special
relevance for a student who has little or no work experience or limited
exposure to the variety within the pharmacy profession. It allows students to
review expectations and gives them a place to refer to prior to and during
rotations.
**Audience**
While the book is written primarily for a student audience, residents can use it
as a reference and practitioners, as a guide and resource. It targets a broad
range of specialties, including internal medicine and clinical rotations,
hospital or health system pharmacy, community pharmacy, management and
leadership rotations, academia, ambulatory care, and geriatrics. I think
pharmacy practitioners as a whole will find this book useful, not just
students. The author is a clinical pharmacist and an assistant professor, and
therefore would have particular expertise in the section on academia and
hospital and health system pharmacy. The many contributors have experience in
their chapter topics.
**Features**
The book covers the many aspects of IPPE and APPE rotations in a concise manner,
and contains essential information such as professionalism, drug information
questions, and case presentations that are crucial for success as a student and
a practitioner. It describes the specifics of each ASHP-recognized rotation
type and thoroughly explains it. The book concludes with information about
starting a career, staying informed, and giving back, which are all essential
elements of becoming a successful pharmacist in any setting. The best aspects
of the book are that it is up to date with current issues in pharmacy practice
and the audience can relate to the discussions of professionalism, rotation
types, and what actually happens after rotations are concluded. I appreciated
the section on e-professionalism. As younger generations use online resources
and social media as outlets, it is important that they maintain a professional
appearance. Cases, case questions, quick tips, figures, and tables are
effectively used to enhance readers' experience. Cases at the beginning of each
chapter are engaging and relevant to the chapter topic discussed. The case
questions are brief, but are useful for applying knowledge and reviewing the
material. The figures and tables are excellent, especially in the chapters on
ambulatory care and becoming a preceptor. This is information I will use to
enhance my own practice and interactions with students. The only shortcoming
involves the chapter on evaluation of medical literature and journal clubs.
This could actually be split into two separate chapters that provide greater
detail, including an expanded list of common clinical trial terminology (i.e.,
open-label, parallel-group, cross-over, single-blind, etc.) as well as a more
detailed example of a journal club format.
**Assessment**
This is a useful, high quality, and practical book for both students and
practitioners who precept. I could find no other books that summarize and
collate information about IPPE and APPE rotations like this one does. I will
use it to improve and expand my practice and role as a preceptor.

Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP s Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond
By Mate Soric
American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education 2013; 77 (10) Article 231.

[REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION]
Janet K. Astle, EdD. Mylan School of Pharmacy, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania
It can be a real challenge to maintain any type of consistency when dealing with multiple contributors to a text. Nevertheless, in Maximize Your Rotations: ASHP s Guide to IPPEs, APPEs, and Beyond, Soric manages to create a coherent work Written for students preparing for introductory and advanced pharmacy practice experiences (IPPEs and APPEs), the text goes into much greater depth than publications of a similar nature. Its voice, format, and structure make for an easy read that is both engaging and informative.
The book is divided into 3 main sections. Part I: The Essentials, consisting of chapters 1 through 6, deals with overarching concepts that cut across multiple practice experience types. Topics include a review of medical terminology and biostatistics, a systematic method for conducting a balanced and objective evaluation of the literature, an approach to handling drug information questions and case presentations, and an overview of professionalism. Part II: The Particulars discusses student preparation for and engagement in individual practice experience types. Chapters 7 through 14 in this section address IPPEs as well as APPEs in internal medicine and other clinical settings, hospital or health-system pharmacy, community pharmacy, ambulatory care, management and leadership, geriatrics, and academia. The book concludes with Part III: Life After Rotations. The final 3 chapters address postgraduate opportunities, lifelong
learning, and the importance of serving as a preceptor in the future.
Each chapter begins with a short case to set the stage for the primary topic. Quick Tips and Case Questions interspersed throughout the narrative keep the reader focused and provide an opportunity for reflection. Also embedded in each chapter are helpful tables, definitions, common laboratory values, equations, sample forms and formats, and other valuable references. A list of suggested readings and citations is provided at the end of each chapter, although there is inconsistency in the extent of such references from chapter to chapter.
Maximize Your Rotations does an outstanding job of providing students with a review of the tools needed for practice experiences. Moreover, it offers students an overview of what to expect during any given practice experience type, the kinds of activities in which the student will be engaged, how to best prepare for the experience, and the types of resources needed. It also describes what is expected from students in terms of appropriate behaviors, types of project and assignments, and typical work products.
Although the book is nicely aligned with contemporary practice, it will be important for the author to periodically review and update this text to maintain its relevancy and currency. In future revisions, the author might also consider incorporation of strategies for preparing for the North American Pharmacist Licensure Examination and Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Examination, a more robust discussion and inclusion of the ACPE Standards and Guidelines that drive experiential education, and a more expansive conversation regarding the consideration of and preparation for career opportunities other than residencies and fellowships.
Maximize Your Rotations makes for an excellent addition to any experiential student s library. The case questions embedded in the text could further serve to stimulate robust discussion as part of orientation programs and courses dedicated to experiential education. Experiential directors may wish to consider this text as a requirement for students embarking upon their practice experiences.
