This educational program is designed to provide pharmacy preceptors an improved understanding of the importance of effectively utilizing students at their practice site in order to be more effective in their role as preceptors.

The first topic will discuss effectively utilizing students as pharmacy extenders. Preceptors will learn about the process for documentation and implementation of clinical contributions of student pharmacists on various practice sites. The second topic explores how to successfully precept varying levels of student learners.

This will include practical examples of incorporating the layered learning model utilizing appropriate educational activities for the resident learner and the student learner. Through presentations and interactive group discussions with Jefferson College of Pharmacy educators, preceptors will be provided the opportunity to gain insight as to how various techniques can be incorporated into their experiential education setting to enhance the student learning experience, and ultimately work to improve efficiency at their practice site.

By participating in this educational program, preceptors will further develop and maintain the framework for continued high quality educational experiences they offer to our pharmacy students in their practice settings. Incorporating various learning strategies at their practice site to achieve optimal learning outcomes from their experiential educational experience will benefit pharmacy students.
