In a meeting with MIU Pharmacy Practice Specialists, she discussed several issues related to “Preceptorship “, the newly developed concept in the pharmacy practice at MIU. They discussed the role and qualifications of a preceptor, the difference between a clinician and a preceptor, and the relationship between a preceptor and both the students and other health care practitioners. She also gave some recommendations on the necessary measures to enhance preceptorship performance at MIU and on how to develop rotation sites in MIU with specific focus on the dental clinic.
Dr. Miller also gave a presentation on “Pain Management”, which was previously given in an ACPE continuous education event. The presentation was attended by the Faculty staff.
