Current and Prospective Preceptors

Here you’ll find information on preceptor requirements, benefits, and training for current and prospective Concordia University Wisconsin School of Pharmacy preceptors (clinical instructors). As a preceptor, you’re an invaluable resource to CUW and our students.

CUW-SOP Pharmacy Days

Pharmacy Days is an annual event co-sponsored by the CUW SOP Office of Experiential Education and the Office of Student Affairs. Pharmacy Days is designed to expose CUW SOP students to the multitude of options available to them as they start planning their pharmacy careers. Employers are encouraged to provide students with information about clinical rotations, internships, residencies and post-graduation career options.

P4 students are now ready to pursue post-graduate training and employment opportunities. P3 students will be especially interested in information that employers can provide regarding clinical rotations their sites offer to P4 students. P1 and P2 students will be more likely to focus on information about internships and career options. Pre-pharmacy students may also be in attendance at Pharmacy Days.
