APPEL Preceptor Training – Supporting 4th-year Student Pharmacists on their Journey to Practice

Pharmacists who would like to act as a Preceptor to a 4th-year pharmacy student under the new MPharm programme can undertake the required Preceptor training at this year’s IPU conference. These pharmacists will then be positioned to oversee four-month APPEL placements for 4th-year students in 2019. At the conclusion of the session, participants will understand the new role of the Preceptor, how placements are structured and assessed, and the learning outcomes set for students. The session will identify strategies to successfully facilitate experiential learning placements through effective feedback, resolving conflict and calibrating expectations. For more information on this session, please contact APPEL Team at ops@appel.ie.
