Preceptor Continuing Education Conference

In cooperation with the Texas Society of Health-System Pharmacists, UH College of Pharmacy's Office of Experiential Programs hosts Preceptor Continuing Education Conferences in the fall and spring of each year.

The conferences are designed to inform attendees of the latest developments within the college, its Office of Experiential Programs and external entities such as the Texas State Board of Pharmacy, particularly activities and initiatives specific to preceptors and Introductory and Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (IPPE/APPE). In addition, the conferences are intended to provide helpful advice on various topics and issues related to the preceptor/student relationship to ensure a positive, effective and safe learning/training experience.

NABP e-Profile ID

In 2012, ACPE-accredited providers, such as TSHP, began requesting all participants to provide their NABP e-Profile ID and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they register for a CPE activity or submit a request for credit. It will be the responsibility of the pharmacist or technician to provide the correct information in order to receive credit for participating in a CPE activity. To obtain your NABP e-Profile ID, visit and complete the sign-up process for the "CPE Monitor."

Participants must complete the online evaluation after the program to receive credit. You will receive an email after the conference with more information.
