PharmD Program Preceptor Information
The University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy certainly appreciates all the preceptors who support the experiential education program and contribute to the education of our students- we couldn't do it without you!
The University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy has established the following criteria for pharmacist preceptors within the experiential program:
- Have a minimum of one year experience post-licensure
- Be in good standing with the board of pharmacy or licensing body of the state of current licensure
Non-pharmacist preceptors are approved on a limited basis for experiences including but not limited to research or academia. Pharmacy Residents are also eligible to serve as preceptors in the experiential program as part of the layered learning model under the direction of a Primary Site Preceptor, who meets the requirements outlined above.
