Become a Preceptor

Pharmacists educate patients, understand their needs, and forge relationships with patients and families that often last a lifetime. Students at the College of Pharmacy receive outstanding classroom experiences from respected and accomplished faculty; through rotations, our students receive hands-on, practical experience, have opportunities to hone their skills, and are introduced to a wide variety of career opportunities.

Make a difference. Become a preceptor!

If you are interested in becoming a preceptor with the College of Pharmacy, please complete the following steps. All preceptor forms and resources can be found in the Preceptor Toolbox.

  1. Complete the Preceptor Application form. 
    Once you have completed your application form, you will also be prompted to upload your current CV/Resume.
  2. Prepare your Rotation Syllabus. 
    To assist you in this process, please find a syllabi template for your rotation category. Each document can be adapted to include objectives and rotation activities to fit your practice site. This document can be emailed to experiential@cop.sc.edu.
  3. Establish an Affiliation Agreement if you are a new practice site for the College of Pharmacy. 
    Please complete the required fields of the Affiliation Agreement and print for signatures of the authorized individuals at your site. Then submit the signed agreement via fax at 803-777-0581, or email it to experiential@cop.sc.edu. If your facility prefers to use a standard agreement, please send this template to experiential@cop.sc.edu. Please note that we have corporate agreements established with several nationwide chain pharmacies, so please check with our office if you have any questions.
