Prospective Preceptors

Pharmacy preceptors are the heart of the EL program.

Preceptors are key members of the EL team, as they provide opportunities for students to learn, apply knowledge, and demonstrate competencies in real-world settings. Preceptors serve as role models and their contribution to student learning cannot be over-emphasized.

The USask PharmD EL Program would be happy to hear from you if you are interested in precepting.

Prospective preceptors should review the following information:

Consider Co-Precepting

Many sites have co-preceptors who share the primary responsibility for students. However, other pharmacists and staff often participate in students' learning experiences. It is important for the EL Office to know who is supervising students on site, so all co-preceptors must be registered with the EL Office to obtain a CORE account.

Please let the EL Office know about others at your site who will be involved in precepting and supervising students.

Check out the Co-Precepting Guidebook to learn more about co-precepting models.
