Top 5 Reasons to be a Preceptor
- Share your knowledge and experience with student pharmacists

- Constantly improve your clinical and teaching skills

- Give back to the profession
Preceptors are essential for the PharmD program to augment students’ classroom education by providing learning experiences in many aspects of contemporary pharmacy practice. Assuring the optimal preparation of future pharmacists to improve health outcomes of the patients and populations they serve, preceptors serve as instructors, role models, and mentors, providing students with invaluable exposure to the ‘real world’ of pharmacy practice. They also influence the behaviors, opinions, and attitudes that students will carry throughout their careers. Therefore, retaining exemplary preceptor faculty in the field is essential to the mission of the School.
