The Preceptor of the Year award will be presented at the virtual Preceptor Education and Recognition Symposium on May 10, 2024, and provides monetary recognition.

Selection Criteria:

  • The award is given to adjunct clinical faculty only. (The Teaching Excellence award is the process for recognition of clinical and tenured faculty. The Department of Clinical Pharmacy (CP) meet every year as well to award a CP Preceptor of the Year)
  • The nominee must have been a preceptor of U of M PharmD students for at least 2 academic years.
  • The nominee must have had an average of at least 2 U of M PharmD students (IPPE or APPE) per year in the 2 most recent academic years and completed the full rotation cycles with those students, including all evaluations.
  • Given the large number of dedicated preceptors, previous award winners will not be considered. 
  • Since student comments from preceptor evaluations are an important component of the selection process, only primary preceptors who are evaluated by students will be eligible for consideration.
