Affiliation Agreement/Preceptor Appointment
In order for a pharmacy practice site to be a rotation site, there must be an affiliation agreement between UA and the rotation site. This document provides the legal framework to establish the facility as a rotation site for UA students to earn intern hours and academic credit.
At each contracted rotation site, there must be an appointed preceptor through which rotation activities are coordinated.
The College of Pharmacy is enrolled in a malpractice insurance policy that covers students during their participation in the experiential program. This policy only covers the student for professional liability as a pharmacy intern while doing rotations assigned by the College of Pharmacy. If the student is involved in activities beyond the scope of pharmacy practice and his or her level of training, he or she will not be covered by this policy. This policy does not cover students performing intern activities outside the College of Pharmacy experiential program.
In accordance with UA and ACPE guidelines, students may not be compensated monetarily for experiential training on rotations. Students receive academic credit from the College of Pharmacy and intern hour credit from the Arizona State Board of Pharmacy after successful completion of each rotation. To receive intern hour credit for an out-of-state rotation, the student must have a valid intern license in the state where the rotation was completed. Students will not receive intern hour credit for international rotations.
