Operations, clinical and administration are equally important in providing the safest care for all of our patients campus wide. 

The Longitudinal Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (LAPPE) program at HMCL offers students the opportunity to engage with clinical preceptors that are experts in their fields to best advance their clinical knowledge as well as experienced staff pharmacists, administrative specialists, and a residency trained management team. Our LAPPE students will rotate through a variety of experiences such as advanced hospital, internal medicine, pharmacy administration/management, critical care, emergency medicine, and hematology/oncology ambulatory care as well as opportunities to create student-specific experiences through research and project development. We look forward to providing each student with a tailored experience to equip them with the tools necessary to be successful in the hospital setting. Come join our great team!
