The second cohort of the AACP Master Preceptor Recognition Program will receive a $500 honorarium—to attend additional preceptor training or a pharmacy professional meeting to continue preceptor development—a certificate of recognition, complimentary AACP membership, and national acknowledgment from AACP and other pharmacy associations.
