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, Internal Medicine 1 and 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.

If you are interested in becoming a preceptor for the UW School of Pharmacy, please contact any one of the contacts listed below for more information. For those who are already UW School of Pharmacy preceptors, you will find links to two resources for continuing education available to you. One is accessible through E*Value and the other through Pharmacist Letter. Below is additional information on both preceptor development resources.

Collaborative Education Institute (CEI)

The UW School of Pharmacy is part of the Northwest Pharmacy Experiential Consortium—experiential faculty from the 7 schools/colleges of pharmacy in Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Washington, and Wyoming. The mission is to promote outstanding pharmacy experiential education for our students and preceptors by cultivating relationships among colleges and schools in the northwest region.

One collaborative project relating to preceptor development has been subscribing to online preceptor training modules and recommending core modules for preceptors in our region to complete. Many modules are available at no cost for preceptors and are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE). You will receive CE at the successful completion of the training modules.

Preceptor development and other professional development activities from CEI can be accessed directly by current preceptors through E*Value, the rotation management system used by our school.

  1. Access the E*Value login page via the following link: https://www.e-value.net

  2. Log in to your E*Value account and click on the Learning Modules icon

  3. Choose CEI within the submenu Taskbar

  4. Click on Connect to CEI which takes you to the CEI Preceptor Education page

We recommend starting with the Preceptor Development: Core Modules.

Pharmacist’s Letter

The University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy has also partnered with Pharmacist’s Letter to provide preceptors with a vast array of resources through the Preceptor Training and Resource Network (PTRN). The goals of this resource are to 1) help pharmacy preceptors obtain and document preceptor training and continuing education credit; 2) provide support to preceptors to enhance their teaching and clinical practice skills; and 3) increase communication among preceptors and Schools of Pharmacy to support experiential education.

Using the Pharmacist’s Letter portal for preceptor development is helpful for those pharmacists who have difficulty accessing other precepting materials when workplaces do not allow open Internet access. Because most practice sites do allow access to Pharmacist’s Letter, this platform can serve as a mechanism to deliver helpful resources to preceptors. If you already have access to Pharmacist's Letter, it's important to follow the link below to login. This will ensure that you get Preceptor Training CE and other tools included in Preceptor Training & Resource Network added to your existing subscription.

If you don't have access to Pharmacist's Letter, you need to set up a University of Wyoming School of Pharmacy Preceptor CE ID #. Your CE ID # will be automatically created and you’ll be able to use it from any Internet-connected computer to access Preceptor Training & Resource Network.

To access Pharmacist's Letter click this link: www.pharmacistsletter.com/?referer=uwyoming/ptrn.

Once you have set up your access, return to www.pharmacistsletter.com/?referer=uwyoming/ptrn, enter your login information on the right side and click Login

If you need assistance, contact Pharmacist’s Letter: Preceptor Training & Resource Network with questions:  preceptor@pletter.com.

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. For new preceptors, the APhA Advanced Preceptor Training will provide them with a strong foundation to get started in their new role. The APhA Advanced Preceptor Training can be accessed here.

AACP

The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) offers information on a variety of successful practices pertinent to academic pharmacy. The documents AACP provides highlight innovative programs and administrative procedures in selected focus areas currently in place at U.S. colleges and schools of pharmacy. AACP resources can be found here.
