Clinical Scholars Programs
The Clinical Scholars Program of the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy is like an honors course for the Professional Experience Program. The goal of the Clinical Scholars Program (CSP) is to provide a challenging combination of clinical experiences that will prepare those students who plan on completing post-graduate training. The CSP focuses on either inpatient experiences or outpatient experiences.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I change a rotation/clerkship?
Contact AHEC faculty at least two months prior to the requested change. The change must be stated in writing with a reason for the change.
What if I have an issue with a preceptor?
If you are not comfortable speaking to your preceptor directly, please see an AHEC faculty member as soon as possible. Do not wait until the completion of a rotation to inform us of a problem.
How do I get assistance with my projects, presentations, CV preparation, and letters of recommendation?
Feel free to contact an AHEC faculty member at any time. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to a specialist in that area. Contact us at least two weeks in advance of a deadline to allow ample time for the review process.
How do I access UNC Health Science Library resources off-campus?
Most electronic journals and databases are accessible off-campus to students, faculty, and staff with a valid UNC-Chapel Hill 9-digit PID (Person ID) or to AHEC users affiliated with UNC-Chapel Hill with an AHEC Digital Library account.
How do I request a journal article from the UNC Health Science Library?
The Document Delivery Service provides free photocopies of journal articles and book chapters available at the UNC-Chapel Hill Health Sciences Library. It is designed to substitute for the self-service photocopying that you are able to do when on-campus. All students in the Division of Health Affairs are eligible to use this service when they are temporarily off campus for: clerkships, clinical rotations, field placements, electives, extramural rotations, and internships.
