Unlike the many materials and workshops that train preceptors in teaching strategies, Getting Started as a Pharmacy Preceptor walks you through the practical and interpersonal aspects of precepting, from deciding if it's the right role for you to handling difficult situations. Tapping his personal experience and lessons learned from two decades directing experiential education programs, author Randell Doty shares his insights as if he were talking with you over a cup of coffee. In addition to chapters on shaping your rotation, making the most of your site's strengths, and providing student feedback, the book presents eight case studies that examine ways to overcome common student problems. Getting Started as a Pharmacy Preceptor helps you set realistic expectations and equips you with the core knowledge to step into a precepting role with confidence.
