Help Our Students Travel (HOST)

Alumni across the state and country invite students to be guests in their homes during residency interviews or IPPE/APPE rotations. During pharmacy school, students can opt to participate in practice based experiential education rotations – Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experience (IPPE) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) – or residency interviews outside of the Seattle metropolitan area. The HOST program not only saves students money but also offers students and alumni the opportunity to share pharmacy school stories with the next generation of Husky Pharmacists.
