Thank you for agreeing to participate in Drake’s Experiential Program. Attached is your Advanced Practice Experience schedule for the 2011-2012 academic year. We owe our success in part to you as a preceptor for taking the time to teach our future pharmacists. Your P4 students should contact you approximately one month prior to the start of their rotation for instructions on beginning their experience.
We now use E*Value as our web-based experiential education tracking system. A number of orientation resources are available to you if you are new to the system or just need a refresher.
Use the link below to access a written guide and a series of 1-2 minute online tutorials demonstrating various functionalities.
We will continue to ask that you assess student’s work using four tools:
We have many resources available to you as a preceptor. Please visit our preceptor page at the link below to access the Experiential Education Manual, sample syllabi, preceptor development opportunities, access to library resources and much more.
Finally, please note that the Experiential Education Manual addresses the policies and procedures for the experiential program. The manual can be viewed in its entirety by using the link found on the Preceptor page within our website provided above. There are some additional areas to which I would like to draw your attention:
