Preceptor Resources and Benefits

Library Access

As a preceptor for the University of Louisiana Monroe College of Pharmacy, you will have access to the following library resources: 

PharmacyLibrary features content from APhA's authoritative textbooks, an interactive NAPLEX® review, a collection of 250 Active Learning Exercises, case studies, article abstracts from the Journal of the American Pharmacists Association, and a variety of news sources.

LWW Health Library meets the needs of pharmacy educators and institutions by providing a single portal to foundational and clinical science content, as well as rich multimedia ancillaries for teaching and learning. At a time when curricula are evolving, teaching time is condensed and faculty must integrate case studies and clinical skill-building from day one, LWW responds by delivering the authoritative content you trust in the format you and your students need.

Micromedex 2.0 includes more than thirty items of drug information, including three books on over-the-counter and prescription drug monographs (one focused on pediatric and neonatal patients); one herbal monograph source; books focusing on pregnancy and lactation, poisoning or toxicology, laboratory tests, evidence-based information on diseases, and new drugs and drugs in development; the Physician's Desk Reference; RED BOOK (drug pricing); patient care handouts; and interactive tools including twenty clinical calculators, oral or topical drug interactions, intravenous compatibility, and pill identification. 

Facts & Comparisons provides an interactive online drug application with updated drug information to assist with comparing prescription drugs, drug interaction screening, drug identification, and more.

Continuing Education

The College of Pharmacy strives to help you enhance your clinical and teaching skills through free continuing education.  As a preceptor you will have access to free continuing education and resources from the Collaborative Education Institute (CEI).  You will also receive live continuing education annually at our Preceptor Conference.

Preceptor Recognition

Each year the College of Pharmacy recognizes preceptors for excellence in experiential teaching of student pharmacists. These awards are based on student feedback during practice experiences.  We believe that preceptors deserve to be recognized and acknowledged for their contribution to pharmacy education.
