The USF TCOP curriculum is very similar to that offered by other schools and colleges across the state of Florida and country. This is purposeful as there are standards that must be upheld by all pharmacy programs must to remain in accordance with national accreditation, financial aid and state regulatory requirements. The USF TCOP Mission, Vision and Goals serve to guide curricular content as well as other TCOP endeavors. The integration of technology, student engagement in the educational process, and interprofessional activities serve as the foundation for each course. The faculty will utilize a variety of instructional methods to foster student attainment course objectives.
For an active learning environment, our pharmaceutical skills course utilizes PioneerRx Pharmacy Software as one of several innovative learning technologies in the course series. Students apply their knowledge in simulated, real-world functions using this pharmacy management system to prepare them for life outside of the classroom and future ownership.

All students will be enrolled on a full-time basis. Several courses may be taught predominantly on-line, however the majority of courses will include classroom contact. Lectures will be limited so that peer and faculty interactions can be maximized. For many courses students may be required to listen to lectures on-line, or complete activities and/or assignments in preparation for class. The emphasis of the USF TCOP is the comprehension and assimilation of knowledge, with subsequent demonstration of competency (skills and abilities).
