Pharmacy Curriculum Outcomes Assessment
Pharmacy Curriculum Outcomes Assessment (PCOA): The PCOA is a key evaluation of student learning during each year of the curriculum. It provides students with individual performance measures. The exam is used as a gauge of the School of Pharmacy’s performance compared to other schools of pharmacy. This assessment is created by National Association of Boards of Pharmacy. PCOA is a mandatory exam for all P3 and P4 students at the TTUHSC–SOP.
Students missing the PCOA exam or performing poorly in January 2018 will not be allowed to retake the exam until January 2019.
