The projected expenditure is based off of the need to incorporate utilization of standardized patients in objective-structured clinical examinations during the course and purchase of drug supplies to simulate a community pharmacy. We contract with the Kado Clinical Skills Center at the medical school and utilize their standardized patient pool and resources to conduct the objective structured clinical exams (OSCEs) in this course. We currently run a 6-station OSCE and use standardized patients in two stations. The invoice for this service last year was $15,568 with the largest amount attributed to hourly cost of standardized patients’ training and execution involved in the exam; this upcoming schoolyear is anticipated to be the same or slightly more.
P3 OSCE expenditure from 2019 vs. 2021 was $12.958 vs $15,568. The SP rate rose from $19 to $22 per hour and is moving to $23 per hour for this upcoming cycle. Other expenses involved with using the Kado Clinical Skills Center are tied to administrative staff use, exam proctors and facility. Making a slight increase to the course material fee will add an additional $855 to contribute towards the expenses which are already being partially subsidized by the program.

The intent of the P3 clinical capstone course is that students will utilize their pharmacotherapy knowledge and skills to evaluate patient cases and practice related problems in order to assess their preparedness before they go to their advance pharmacy practice experiences during the fourth year of the curriculum. During this course, students will take part in two, four-station OSCEs during both a mid-course formative OSCE and a high-stakes end of course OSCE. Course material fees will be used to cover expenses related to the cost of the OSCEs (training and utilizing standardized patients and space/center for OSCEs) and additional supplies need to simulate a community pharmacy atmosphere.
