Activity Overview 

The critical contributions that preceptors and experiential education make to Professional Identity Formation (PIF) are increasingly recognized. PIF is the process that involves incoporating and embodying the attitudes, values, and behaviors that represent a professional member of a community beyond professional characteristics. Information, including best teaching practices, will be shared on how preceptors can promote PIF. This activity is designed to orient preceptors to PIF and equip them with tools to intentionally design their learning experiences to promote PIF. 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education with Commendation.

Pharmacy resident and student preceptors, residency program directors, and technician educators. 

After completing this activity, the learner should be able to… 

1. Define professional identity formation (PIF) in current pharmacy education. 

2. Describe PIF concepts to precepting practices with students and residents. 

3. Identify one action step to intentionally incorporate PIF into practice experiences.
