Pharmacists educate patients, understand their needs, and forge relationships with patients and families that often last a lifetime. Students at the College of Pharmacy receive outstanding classroom experiences from respected and accomplished faculty; through rotations, our students receive hands-on, practical experience, have opportunities to hone their skills, and are introduced to a wide variety of career opportunities.
The Experiential Education Program provides approximately one-third of a student’s total pharmacy education, and is the backbone of the Doctor of Pharmacy program. The fundamental goal of the program is to provide students with the structured environment that they need to develop their professional judgment, technical skills and practice skills. Preceptors encourage critical thinking to solve problems and not only facilitate a student’s knowledge base, but also his or her ability to provide excellence in patient care. Participating as a preceptor demonstrates commitment to the profession and its growth. Additionally, it impacts those individuals who will be the profession’s future practitioners and leaders.
