As the only state event focused on pharmacy precepting, the West Coast Preceptor Conference (WCPC) is a must-attend event for pharmacy practitioners at all levels and practice settings who seek quality programming and networking opportunities with other practitioners across the country.

CSHP has designed the West Coast Preceptor Conference to be a small, intimate, boutique-style conference where members of the pharmacy precepting community can build community, expand your precepting expertise and enjoy a bit of relaxation along the way.

What is a "boutique" conference? A boutique is a "business that serves a sophisticated or specialized clientele." Want to hear an interesting twist? The early origin of the word boutique is Greek for "apotheke," the English for apothecary, or a pharmacist/pharmacy. We'd say a boutique conference for pharmacy preceptors is meant to be!

The education tracks are designed for preceptors of pharmacy students, preceptors of pharmacy residents and sessions of both. Located in beautiful Pacific Grove, located 2 miles from Monterey, and enjoy the spectacular ocean views at the peaceful retreat of the Asilomar Lodge and Conference Center.



At the West Coast Preceptor Conference we are proud to be bringing together nearly 30 experts in the pharmacy precepting field. Opening & Closing Keynote presenters will be announced shortly so be sure to keep an eye out for our communications!
