A decision has been made by the Master Preceptor Recognition Program Committee to temporarily suspend the award for the 2019–2020 academic year. The committee will be using this time to re-evaluate the program as a whole and to address concerns regarding the application process.
Future updates will be communicated when available.
The purpose of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Master Preceptor Recognition Program (MPRP) is to recognize preceptors who are not full-time employees of a school/college of pharmacy for their sustained commitment to excellence in experiential education and professional practice. The MPRP was developed based on recommendations from the 2012 AACP Professional Affairs Committee Report and was approved for implementation by the AACP Board of Directors. This program is funded in part by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) Foundation.
The MPRP consists of a recognition plaque, complimentary AACP membership for the year of MPRP recognition and national recognition from AACP and other pharmacy associations.
The MPRP is funded in part by the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) Foundation, and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS).
