Fraternity News and Notes

Master Preceptors Recognized for Dedication to Experiential Education By AACP - Read More

The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy has recognized two Kappa Psi brothers as master preceptors for their dedication and commitment to excellence in experiential education and professional practice. Preceptors supervise student pharmacist-interns in a clinical setting, and play a critical role in shaping a student’s future career through teaching and mentoring. 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.

Congratulations to

· Deanna McDanel, Pharm.D., The University of Iowa College of Pharmacy

· Christopher L. Greer, B.S.Pharm., Washington State University College of Pharmacy
