Preceptors

Preceptor and studentWelcome Preceptors

Experiential education provides experiences in real-life settings. In pharmacy education, the experiential component is designed to provide in-depth exposure to and active participation in all pharmacy practice settings. As pharmacy preceptors, you play a central role in the Professional Experience Program. You serve as mentors and role models who demonstrate high standards of professionalism; you show students how to apply knowledge learned in the classroom to daily practice; you evaluate student progress.
