Preceptor Corner

Preceptors are exemplary practitioners who dedicate time to develop the next generation of pharmacists. They are committed to their profession and to their role as educators. Preceptors provide students with an environment that is conducive to learning and opportunities for students to develop professional and interprofessional competencies. They serve as role models for students to gain hands-on experience in the practice environment. Preceptors attempt to instill the principles of professional ethics by deeds as well as words. 


When a facility becomes an affiliated experiential site, at least one preceptor must be identified at the site. Additional preceptors may participate at any time, upon the recommendation of both the site representative(s) and the recommendation of the RC or Director of Experiential Programs.

Adjunct Faculty
The School of Pharmacy clinical faculty, or regional coordinators (RCs), nominate new adjunct faculty by submitting the nominee's Application for Adjunct Faculty and curriculum vitae to the Office of Professional Programs. Once applications are approved by the University's Academic Vice President, Dean, and Department Chair, the list of Adjunct Faculty is included in the University of the Pacific General Catalog. Support for Adjunct Faculty such as access to University electronic library resources or professional development activities are coordinated through the RC.
