Experiential Education Program

              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.​

Beginning in 2017, the Experiential Education Program at each of South Carolina's State Colleges of Pharmacy are working together to form the Palmetto Experiential Education Partnership or PEEP. By becoming a preceptor for PEEP you will only need to provide your availability for the rotation year (May 1st thru April 30th) once through our rotation management system which is accessible to both colleges allowing you to work with student pharmacists from either college. Please complete the following steps to sign up as a PEEP preceptor:

  1. Complete the Preceptor Application form. You will also be prompted to upload your current CV or resumé.
  2. Prepare your Rotation Syllabus. To assist you in this process, please see the list of syllabi templates below for your rotation category. The document can be adapted to include objectives and rotation activities to fit your practice site. This document can be emailed to or once you become a preceptor you can upload it directly into your profile in E*Value, our rotation management system.
  3. Establish an Affiliation Agreement if you are a new practice site for either of PEEP's universities. Please complete the required fields of the SCCP Affiliation Agreement and print for signatures of the authorized individuals at your site. Then submit the signed agreement via fax (803.777.0581) or email. If your facility prefers to use a standard agreement, please send this template to Please note that we have corporate agreements established with several nationwide chain pharmacies, so please check with our office if you have any questions.
  4. Review the Rotation Manuals below to become familiar with our Experiential Program.
