Dr. Nancy Waite and her team developed our Community of Practice model which is designed to be more flexible than the traditional model to accommodate site realities and needs and help students become more engaged in their local pharmacy community.

Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.

Each region has its own Regional Clinical Coordinator (RCC) who organizes and schedules student placements, trains preceptors and provides additional support, where needed, to both students and preceptors.
