The Western New England University (WNE) College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (CoPHS) will hold its tenth annual Continuing Pharmacy Education and Preceptor Development Conference Thursday, October 28, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. There is no charge to attend the conference, but advanced registration is required.

The virtual conference is designed to help bring WNE preceptors together so that they can stay up to date on the experiential education changes. In addition, the event helps preceptors expand their skills as educators while participating in continuing education opportunities.

  • Perspectives on Challenging Learners: Overcoming Barriers for a Positive Learning Experience with James Sarigianis
