Manchester University College of Pharmacy would like to congratulate Ryan Ades, 2016 IPPE I Preceptor of the Year!


Congratulations IPPE I Preceptor of the Year, Ryan Ades!


The Pharmacy Program at Manchester University College of Pharmacy, Natural and Health Sciences awarded our first Preceptor of the Year awards in spring 2016. We would like to congratulate Ryan Ades of Meijer Pharmacy as our inaugural IPPE I Preceptor of the Year recipient. Excerpts from Ryan’s student nomination include:

“I had a phenomenal preceptor who not only simplified pharmacy practice for a beginner like myself, but also increased my passion for the profession. Ryan went well beyond his job by taking personal interest in both my practical education as well as my classroom education. He always made an effort to stay updated on what I was learning in school each week, greatly solidifying my knowledge by often quizzing me on topics the professors had covered. Most importantly, whenever he noticed me doing activities like counting pills or shelving, he would tell me to stop and would instead give me tasks such as figuring out drug interactions, calculating drug dosing or observing his counseling. In fact, before explaining his own reasoning and advice in detail, Ryan would first ask what medication I would recommend based on what the patient had said. What I loved and respected most about my preceptor is that rather than treating me as a first year student of minimal knowledge, Ryan treated me as he would any of his pharmacist colleagues by valuing my opinion as well as my potential as a future pharmacist.” 

Recipients receive a trophy and an 18-month membership to the Indiana Pharmacists Alliance. Their names are also added to a plaque displayed in the Experiential Education office.

We would like to thank all of our preceptors for their hard work and dedication to our students. We appreciate you!
