Do I need to become certified as a preceptor?
As of July 1, 2012, the State of Colorado will no longer certify preceptors. The Skaggs School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences will accept pharmacists who have been licensed and practicing for at least 1 year.
What is the time commitment?
For the first time, our P1s will remain with their preceptors for 4 semesters. This arrangement will maximize student learning while allowing the preceptor to watch the professional growth of our students.
Community pharmacists will see their students approximately 4-8 times each semester while the health systems pharmacists will see their students 4 times each semester. Each visit will last between 1.5 and 3 hours.
Did you know?
Student pharmacists will spend nearly 1/3 of their educational time in pharmacy practice sites......
Want to become involved?
We are always looking for talented preceptor help! Opportunities include:
Participation with the student applicant interview process
Small group facilitation for experiential visit discussions
Facilitators for courses (including CPC and Skill-based activities)
Grading writing reflection assignments
Reviewing student portfolio work
