Impact the Future of Pharmacy as a Preceptor

Preceptors help student pharmacists put their education into practice by mentoring and educating them in real world settings during their rotations.

The preceptor-student relationship is a valued connection that endures long after a rotation cycle has ended. You can directly impact the future of the profession by imparting your knowledge to the next generation of pharmacy leaders.

When I started precepting, I wanted to maintain a connection with St. Louis College of Pharmacy. I loved my time as a student on rotations. There were preceptors who made such a difference to me, and I wanted to be able to give back in that same way. Pharmacy has been rewarding to me in so many ways, and just seeing what my students have accomplished in their careers gives me immense pride.
