Greetings Purdue Preceptors!

Welcome to the new continuing education (CE) page developed specifically for preceptors in our Experiential Learning Program. We value your commitment to the education of future pharmacists and are extremely grateful for your participation in the experiential learning portion of the PharmD curriculum.

In an effort to express our gratitude for your service, we are offering several CE programs for free or at a substantially reduced
cost – the content of which was determined based upon data obtained from a recent survey. As such, we are developing and/or compiling two types of CE, clinical practice updates and professional development, which will be placed on our webpage to have everything in one spot for your convenience.

  • Clinical Practice Updates – AVAILABLE NOW!

    Clinical practice updates span a variety of disease states and topics. The disease states are organized into individual modules in order to offer emphasis and address each in detail. You can gain access to these activities via the following link, www.distance.purdue.edu/icm. You should have received an email with a coupon code provided so that this program can
    be accessible at no charge to you; however, please contact me, sheplerb@purdue.edu, if you did not receive that message.

  • Professional Development – COMING SOON!

    The second type of CE that will be offered falls under the professional development category and contains programs designed to further advance your teaching and mentoring skills. Several of these programs exist through other national organizations or colleges of pharmacy. We have assembled the links to the ones we feel are the most beneficial.

    In addition, we are offering preceptors the opportunity to participate in a number of Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) programs that are delivered by our own certified MBTI consultant. These programs allow for personal and professional
    growth individually or in teams through the use of personality assessments. For more information and topics covered,
    please visit the MBTI section of this website.

We are confident you will find a variety of CE opportunities available to match your interests through this site. Thank you again
for your dedication to our students and to the profession.

Boiler Up!
