    Pharmacy Continuing Education Requirements
    This activity is structured to meet application-based educational needs. An application -based activity applies to information learned in the timeframe allotted. Application type activities are based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the healthcare professions. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based on participation in this activity. Any individual who is more than 10 minutes late to an activity or leaves an activity early will not be granted PCE credit. This procedure will be strictly enforced, so please plan accordingly.

    Participants must fully participate in the activity and complete an online activity evaluation and posttest questions, if received by presenters, with a passing score of 70 percent or greater before May 21, 2021. Online evaluations and posttests will not be available for completion and requests to process credit will not be accepted after this date. See the program ins truction sheet distributed during the activity for the online activity link. NOTE: ACPE guidelines prohibit MPA from issuing credit more than 60 days after the activity for any reason; therefore, to avoid denial of credit, it is imperative that participants complete the online evaluation and posttest by the deadline indicated to allow sufficient time for processing. If all requirements are met, participants will receive pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit through CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed PCE credits. MPA, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist and pharmacy technician PCE credit using this tracking system. Pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants must provide their NABP e-Profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the participant to provide the correct information. If this information is not correctly provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit. Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. Therefore, MPA will not provide printed statements of credit to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Partial credit will not be awarded. If you have yet to sign up for CPE Monitor, go to

    Question and Answer


  • Preceptor of the Year Award

    Preceptors play a critical role in the education of our students. The experiential education component comprises almost one third of the College of Pharmacy PharmD curriculum. Furthermore, our volunteer faculty preceptors teach a large percentage of both our IPPE and APPE practice experiences. Without our dedicated preceptors, we could not provide students with such a diverse array of excellent rotation opportunities.

    Each year we recognize one preceptor who has shown outstanding support for our students and our program.

    Preceptor of the Year is an honor bestowed upon one exceptional College of Pharmacy volunteer faculty preceptor. Recipients are not only excellent role models for PharmD students, but have demonstrated commitment to the core values of the College of Pharmacy.

  • Nominate Preceptor of the Year

    Nominations due by 8:00am on Monday, March 22nd, 2021.  Preceptors are nominated by their students or peers. The nominees are then reviewed by the Office of Experiential Education and peer-reviewed by the Experiential Education Committee and a recipient is selected. The honoree is awarded a plaque and monetary recognition at the annual Preceptor Education and Recognition Symposium.

    Nominations are no longer being accepted.
