Preceptors are the heart of our pharmacy program. Their contributions advance the industry and ensure students become professionals.
Our students will complete 40 weeks of rotations and student experiential education during the course of their degrees, all of which are supervised and made possible by preceptors. The success of our programs is due to our preceptors' dedication. They create patient care opportunities, guide students, and assess their performance.
These committed professionals work throughout the industry, including:
Many preceptors are in clinical practice settings providing direct patient care. With the implementation of the PharmD program, opportunities for students with preceptors in non-patient care settings, such as drug information, and research and leadership/management are also being developed.
Think back to your experience as a student; preceptors and mentors play a significant role in the professional development of students.
