The Role of the Preceptor

The role of the preceptor in pharmacy education continues to grow.  Education in the workplace is a crucial part of the PharmD curriculum and new standards established by the Accreditation Council on Pharmacy Education (ACPE) continue to focus in this area specifically.  Drake is recognized for the quality of the advanced practice experiences provided to our students.  We are grateful for the many talented professionals who serve as adjunct faculty in the role of preceptor.

Preceptorship can be both personally and professionally rewarding.  Students can bring great value to sites, with skill sets that may be different from existing pharmacy staff.  In addition, they have been trained on the latest guidelines and instructed on developing patient care programs.  We encourage you to use our students to help create innovation at your site.
