  • Please keep an eye out for preceptor availability surveys that will be disseminated to you by email. Given preceptor feedback about emails not coming through from CORE ELMS, the Office of Experiential Education will continue to use the Qualtrics survey we sent out through email in the fall for APPE availability for all future experiential rotation availability. Please contact the office if you have any questions or concerns.
  • A preceptor availability survey using Qualtrics has been sent out to preceptors for the Class of 2025’s direct patient care IPPEs. Both of these IPPEs take place in the fall and spring of the P3 year. Preceptors play an integral role in using IPPEs to better prepare students for their upcoming APPEs, but also by inspiring students early on through their delivery of pharmacotherapy-based care of patients.
  • Approximately 60% of our Class of 2025 has expressed interest in pursuing a role in direct patient care, including the pursuit of residency training. We encourage preceptors to participate early on the IPPE portion of the experiential curriculum, which can help educate students about the vast career opportunities available to them as a pharmacist.
  • Communication will be disseminated regarding some collaborative and live continuing education opportunities offered through the Office of the Experiential Education. Topics include treatment of opioid use disorder, updates on the integration of entrustable professional activities (EPAs) in all Doctor of Pharmacy curricula, and how preceptors can utilize and assess EPAs in the experiential environment.
