Preceptors are licensed professional practitioners who provide education and training to pharmacy students on experiential education rotations such as in hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, pharmaceutical industry or other relevant and approved practice sites. Preceptors support the advancement of the academic mission of the School of Pharmacy and may also participate in research, service and other creative work as determined by their job description and practice site affiliation. Preceptors who work with the School of Pharmacy on voluntary or part-time basis are given the title of “Adjunct Faculty”.
