Preceptor CE Credits

Preceptor development is an essential component of our program. Our preceptors have access to CE Impact (CEI) which offers free CE credits on a variety of preceptor related and therapeutic topics 24/7.

Based on the number of hours precepted, participants will also receive “preceptor credits” each fall and spring semester, which can be applied toward payment for UB Continuing Education Programs of your choice.

Our CE programs give pharmacy professionals the opportunity to participate in seminars designed to strengthen their clinical teaching skills, and where applicable, also receive CE credit. Additionally, these programs allow preceptors to help our curriculum evolve and meet current and future needs.

Adjunct Instructor Appointment

After being approved as a preceptor by the Office of Experiential Education, preceptors will have the opportunity to apply for an appointment as an Adjunct Instructor.

Appointment as Adjunct Instructor provides: 

  • Library privileges
  • HUBNET access
  • Parking hangtag
  • UB ID Card

Applications for Adjunct Instructor appointments will be emailed directly to approved preceptors.

Please note: In order to maintain an Adjunct Instructor appointment, preceptors must offer availability to precept UB pharmacy students on an annual basis and/or teach in the didactic pharmacy curriculum. Individuals not engaged in either of these functions will have their appointment inactivated.
