About the Advisory Board

The Office of Experiential Education partners with a large number of pharmacist preceptors to help deliver an important part of the Pharm.D. curriculum. We value our relationships with preceptors, and have developed a Preceptor Advisory Board to enhance the link between the Nesbitt School of Pharmacy and our preceptors. Board members were appointed in 2019 and will serve a three-year term with the option of one additional consecutive term. Board members who are unable to complete their term will have a replacement appointed at the discretion of the Director of Experiential Programs. Board meetings are generally held twice a year.

Major Functions

  1. Providing guidance on key experiential issues and tasks the school faces.
  2. Providing input and feedback on specific APPE and IPPE projects and assignments, and related learning objectives, as well as the experiential program as a whole.
  3. Serving as liaisons between preceptors and the School for preceptors reaching out to them as board members.
  4. Bringing relevant practice and professional issues forward to the Office of Experiential Education.
