Experiental Education Preceptor Award
The AMCP Preceptor Award was established in 2014 to recognize an AMCP member making a significant contribution to managed care pharmacy by being a preceptor to student pharmacists for Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE) and/or Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE) focused in managed care pharmacy.
Note: For recognition of those who are program directors or preceptors for post-graduate year one managed care pharmacy residency programs see AMCP Managed Care Pharmacy Residency Director/Preceptor Award.
An AMCP member who has served as a preceptor for an IPPE and/or APPE for student pharmacists.
Nominations can be made by an AMCP member, a current student pharmacist, an experiential education director at a school/college of pharmacy or anyone who is knowledgeable about the recipient’s service as an APPE and/or IPPE preceptor. Nominations are to include a letter of nomination that includes a statement of no more than 500 words describing the nominee’s service as a preceptor and how it has contributed to advancing managed care pharmacy in a student pharmacist’s education.
