We are grateful for the tremendous amount of support we continue to receive from preceptors and pharmacies throughout Oregon and beyond. Through their generous contribution, by way of precepting and mentoring IPPE and APPE students, we are able to deliver high quality rotations that are engaging, rigorous, and transformative.
A preceptor is an experienced, competent, pharmacist, scientist, or health care provider who is selected and prepared to serve as a role model, teacher, supervisor and evaluator. Preceptors have the responsibility of ensuring that students have a valuable educational experience while guiding the student toward competence in providing compassionate, safe and effective pharmaceutical to patients in a health care setting. Preceptors are chosen on the basis of their commitment to innovative patient-oriented pharmacy practice, quality pharmacy education and the desire to be a mentor and teacher. Preceptors are encouraged to allow students independence and offer guidance and direction when needed. Teaching students should be a rewarding experience for the preceptor as well as the student.
The College of Pharmacy may name a preceptor as an affiliate faculty member because they contribute to and participates in major functions that achieve the mission of the College and the University. Contributions are under the direction of or in collaboration with a regular faculty member such as the Assistant Dean of Experiential Education.
An individual should be named to the affiliate faculty (as compared to courtesy faculty) when the relationship with the University is expected to be for one year or less. There are circumstances, however, which merit issuance of the status for a period longer than one year. The duration of the status will be specified in a letter of notice generated by the department head and given to the affiliate faculty member. Affiliate faculty status will automatically terminate after three years unless renewed by the Assistant Dean of Experiential Education and Dean. The status may be extended through the issuance of a new letter of notice. Affiliate faculty status, however, can be revoked at any time by the Assistant Dean of Experiential Education or the Dean.
