 Preceptor Education Program (PEP)

The Preceptor Education Program is an online interprofessional program for health professionals and students that consists of nine interactive learning modules. Once you complete the short registration process you will instantly receive your login information, so that you can access the PEP program anytime, anywhere. Each module takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete. The modules include downloadable resources, learning exercises, video case scenarios and references. Learning is self-directed in that you can complete the modules on your own, and they do not need to be completed in any particular order. Many of the modules are designed so that preceptors and students can work through them together. After completing a reflective note, a certificate can be printed at the end of each module to record the education completed.

History of PEP

In 2007, an interprofessional team from the University of Western Ontario, Fanshawe College and the Middlesex-London Health Unit (PHRED Program) received funding from the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care to develop an open access, online modular program for health professional students and preceptors. The topics and format of the Preceptor Education Program were chosen based on an extensive review of the existing preceptor programs, the research literature and a survey of 600 clinicians, students and academic faculty. Eight learning modules were developed and pilot tested. Over the years, more than 20,000 people have accessed the program. In 2015, a new grant to update the program was obtained through the Council of Ontario Universities from the Ontario Online Initiative of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. All existing modules have been enhanced and one new module has been added. The updated modules feature new learning activities, downloadable resources, interactive exercises, animated case scenarios and references. A pilot test of the second edition was completed by 80 students and preceptors, and feedback informed revisions completed prior to the January 1, 2016 release.
