PSA Preceptors

Back to previous page

Being a preceptor is a rewarding experience.

The PSA Intern Training Program is an evidence-based, high quality program that prepares an intern for any pharmacy career. Preceptors complement our program and play a pivotal role in helping interns develop into competent and work ready pharmacists.

The PSA delivers a flexible and innovative program that includes:

✔ Practical workshops including case studies and real life scenarios

✔ Online learning modules

✔ Practical assessments

✔ Workplace appraisals

✔ Practice written and oral exams

✔ Intern portfolio incorporating continuing professional development requirements

The two 2-day practical face-to-face workshops are offered in all states across Australia and in some regional areas. Multiple workshops are run in some states. This extensive range of PSA workshop dates and locations provides you and your intern with greater flexibility and help in planning and for those sites where multiple interns are employed.
