Education

The education section of INNOVATIONS provides a venue for examining, debating and promulgating innovations that address problems, challenges, questions and opportunities in pharmacy education. We are particularly interested in supporting curricular change. We seek articles that are not only helpful to individual faculty and scholars in teaching and learning in pharmacy, but also to instructional teams, curriculum committees, assessment committees, student services professionals and administrators.

To learn more about papers of interest and our review criteria, we invite you to read our Invitation. Prior to submitting, please consult the descriptions of the article types for the Education Section.
