Preceptor Resources

The University of Wyoming (UW) School of Pharmacy Experiential Program provides both Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE). IPPE rotations are comprised of Introductory Community and Hospital rotations between a student’s P1 and P2 years during the summer months.

APPE rotations consist of five required rotations (Advanced Community, Advanced Hospital, Ambulatory Care 1, Internal Medicine 1, Ambulatory Care 2 or Internal Medicine 2) and four elective rotations. Full-time faculty teach the required Ambulatory Care and Internal Medicine rotations and non-faculty preceptors lead the Advanced Hospital and Advanced Community rotations. The majority of elective rotations are led by non-faculty preceptors. All rotations are four weeks in length and typically start in late May/early June and end the following mid-May.

Preceptors must be licensed by their respective regulatory board (Board of Pharmacy, Board of Medicine, and Board of Nursing) in the state they work in and must be in good standing with their board. The UW School of Pharmacy does not require preceptors to be a licensed preceptor. However if the state in which the preceptor works requires a preceptor license in order to precept students, preceptors should meet their state requirements.

The School of Pharmacy requires every preceptor to submit a Preceptor Application, Site Description form, and enter into a Contract/Affiliation Agreement.

 Preceptor Development Webinar  

Title page for Pharmacy Webinar Series. We are excited to present our very first preceptor educational webinar created and presented by the University of Wyoming Experiential Program in conjunction with guest preceptor presenter, Dr. Melinda Carroll. The webinar focuses on the Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process (PPCP) and how Dr. Carroll utilizes and educates students about the process in her practice at King Soopers pharmacy in Cheyenne, WY. The webinar also covers how the PPCP is taught in both didactic and experiential settings. By utilizing the PPCP in the education of your pharmacy students, you will promote its consist use across the profession.  In addition, you will be providing a framework for patient care for your practice setting that is patient-centered and delivered in collaboration with other members of the health care team. With all preceptors educating their students about the PPCP it will reinforce the process’ applicability to the variety of patient care services delivered by pharmacists.

The webinar provides 1 hour of continuing education (CD).  If you would like to redeem your CE credit, please contact Antoinette Brown, RPh at:

American Pharmacist Association

The American Pharmacist Association is offering a new advanced preceptor training program to help preceptors gain the knowledge and confidence they need to be successful preceptors. This program trains experienced preceptors with peer-developed content which will provide preceptors with additional knowledge and tools to enhance the experiential education process for them and their student pharmacists and residents.
