University of Connecticut SCHOOL OF PHARMACY

A Tradition of Excellence: Preparing Leaders in Pharmacy and the Pharmaceutical Sciences Since 1925

Preceptor of the Year

Each year the School of Pharmacy recognizes exceptional preceptors, a full-time faculty member and an adjunct “volunteer” faculty member, for the “Preceptor of the Year Award.” These individuals are selected based upon nominations from the P4 pharmacy class for their outstanding contributions to the educational development of our future pharmacists by demonstrating high standards of professionalism, ethics, and clinical practice during their Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences. Awards have since been added to recognize preceptors who provide Introductory Pharmacy Practice Experiences during their P1-P3 years.  These awards are also a student-nominated process that recognizes these practitioners in the community, institutional, and service areas of pharmacy practice. The Roche Preceptor of the Year Award was given through 2007. In 2008, in recognition of his many contributions to the School of Pharmacy and to the development of clinical pharmacy education in Connecticut the School of Pharmacy has named the annual awards honoring excellence in experiential teaching the Dennis J. Chapron Preceptor of the Year Award. Dennis Chapron, M.S., served as an associate professor of pharmacy practice at the School of Pharmacy for 34 years. As a teacher, practitioner, mentor and friend to students and colleagues, Dennis left an immeasurable legacy. Known for excellence in teaching, Professor Chapron has twice received the School of Pharmacy Teacher of the Year Award – in 2003 and 2006. His academic areas of interest include drug disposition and response in the elderly, mechanistic investigations into drug-drug interactions, pharmacogenetics, and clinical problem solving in geriatrics, but his specialty is in connecting with the students, patients and colleagues.
