Preceptor Development

‌Drake CPHS partners with the Collaborative Education Institute (CEI) to provide ongoing educational opportunities for preceptors, students, faculty and practitioners.  All of these programs are accredited by ACPE for continuing pharmacy education (CPE) credit. Preceptor development programs are available free of charge for Drake preceptors.

All preceptors complete CEI's Preceptor Development Core Modules consisting of four brief activities:

  • Mission and vision of Drake University’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, including a tutorial on the use of our online assessment tool, E*Value
  • The Role of the Preceptor
  • Giving Experiential Students Constructive Feedback
  • Site Development

Additional programs are developed on an ongoing basis to supplement the core programs, including:

  • Login to Learn: a monthly, live, online journal club designed to create a collaborative learning environment for preceptors and students. 
  • Ongoing Teaching and Learning Topics:  Teaching the science of safety, developing critical thinking skills in students, FERPA and other legal issues related to experiential education, avoiding professional burnout, and many others.

Instructions on how to access all preceptor development activities, including Core Modules, are located on the preceptor's E*Value home page.
