Field-based faculty are the backbone of colleges of pharmacy. Some of the best in the country have helped the University of Arizona rank in the top tier nationally among all colleges of pharmacy. Now you may be in a position to offer these valuable experiences to future pharmacists, and to get to know some of the best and brightest of the next generation. Sign up now.
Benefits to Preceptors
Volunteering to precept students on clinical rotations is very rewarding personally, but because it does take a lot of hard work, the college has compiled a list of "special incentives" just for experiential faculty members.
The University of Arizona is currently rated as one of the top in the nation among colleges of pharmacy (America's Best Graduate Schools, compiled by U.S. News and World Report). Your appointment as a faculty member to the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Science will enhance your résumé and credentials. And as a clinical faculty member, you will help us reach that coveted top spot in the rankings soon.
The University of Arizona Health Sciences Library is a one-stop online resource available to all preceptors. With access to approximately 4,000 journals, you are sure to find the information you need in full text format. Obtaining such broad access on your own would cost thousands of dollars. E-mail Estella Salgado to sign-up for library access.
Free continuing education programs
We'll help you enhance your clinical skills as well as your teaching abilities through free continuing education programs. CE is offered regionally to give you several opportunities to attend live programs and network with other preceptors. Many of these sessions are developed by preceptors for preceptors. Therefore, you may have the opportunity to present such a program and receive an honorarium.
Southwestern Clinical Pharmacy Seminar
The University of Arizona Annual Southwest Clinical Pharmacy Seminar for pharmacists practicing in any health-system setting is filled with valuable continuing education programs. This two-day seminar is also a great opportunity to network with other pharmacists. Preceptors receive a discounted registration rate.
Each year we recognize one preceptor for their outstanding dedication, service, and teaching ability as "Preceptor of the Year." One newer preceptor, one who has a been a preceptor for 5 years or less, is recognized as the "Rookie of the Year." Additionally, preceptors are rewarded for extended service to the college. Certificates and lapel pins are awarded for 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years of service.
Preceptors may purchase a CatCard from the CatCard Office in the UA Student Union. The CatCard allows access to some additional university services.
