Usciences Preceptors - A Tradition of Excellence

The Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) initiated our first full time/full semester experiential “pharmacy clerkship” program in 1979. We now refer to that as our Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE). Today, we offer rotation sites at hundreds of locations, not only in the Tri-state area, but literally nationwide.

Our preceptors make our experiential educational program the success that it is. Hours of hard work on the part of each preceptor goes into providing our students with an optimal learning experience. It is the preceptor dedication to guiding our students that affords them the opportunity to apply knowledge and sharpen their skills in diverse practice settings and help validate that they are competent to enter pharmacy practice. Preceptors play a key role in helping to instill in our students the professionalism and work ethic upon which our pharmacy profession prides itself.

The Office of Experiential Education strives to offer our preceptors guidance and support through experiential education goals and objectives, task lists, a timely newsletter and educational and growth learning opportunities.

If you are interested in offering rotations for students during the Advanced Pharmacy Practices Experiences (full time at your site for 5 weeks) please contact 215-596-8523.
