Welcome Warrior Preceptors

Here at Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, we know that our preceptors are essential to the development and training of our PharmD students. Pharmacy student surveys conducted through the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) have consistently demonstrated that Wayne State Experiential Education is one of the greatest strengths in our program, thanks to our dedicated preceptors. Our Warrior Preceptors offer opportunities for our students to be integrated in pharmacy practice at a variety of practice sites.
