The work performed by preceptors in supervising and training pharmacy students is valued by the school. Accreditation standards require students to complete substantial amounts of experiential training and it is recognized that the school would not meet accreditation standards without the support of the practice community in providing practice sites and preceptors.
Pharmacists wishing to participate in the P4 advanced pharmacy practice experience program are encouraged to view the APPE practice site survey (.DOC)
Beginning on July 1, 2012, the State of Colorado no longer requires preceptors to be licensed. The Skaggs School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences asks that preceptors be practicing for at least 1 year before becoming a preceptor. Please contact Shiela.Kelso@ucdenver.edu or Belinda.Temple@ucdenver.edu to become a preceptor!
The University of Colorado School of Pharmacy is pleased to offer participation in the Excellence in Precepting Cooperative through Pharmacist's Letter. As a valued member of our preceptor community you will have access to the materials of the Preceptor Training and Resource Network (PTRN)), which provides up to 16 hours of free live or home-study CE and tools for effective precepting and professional development. For a brief outline of the program details, download the PTRN information sheet.
We welcome you to take advantage of this resource provided by the Office of Experiential Programs.
We also want to introduce free access to a certificate program enabled through AACP called Education Scholar. This program allows preceptors, as educators of pharmacy students, to develop teaching philosophies and scholarship excellence through a series of self-study modules. You can define your role as an educator, explore learning activities within the experiential education setting and maintain a personal portfolio for professional development. For more information about signing in as a CU SOP affiliate, please browse the Education Scholar site, then contact Kristen Brown for a preceptor access code.
Preceptors are encouraged to take this FREE online continuing education program developed by APhA and NACDS Foundation. The Community Pharmacist Preceptor Education Program contains valuable information for all preceptors.
