The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer (MDACC) designed and implemented a pilot preceptor development bootcamp for operational staff pharmacists serving as residency preceptors for longitudinal staffing experiences. A systematic, multi‐pronged approach was taken to identify preceptor development gaps and design a full‐day bootcamp curriculum. The resultant curriculum included content in major functional areas such as using the 4 preceptor roles, documenting performance, giving and receiving feedback, and dealing with difficult situations or learners. The impact of the pilot preceptor development bootcamp was assessed using survey methodology to assess confidence and effective in major preceptor functional areas for which education was provided.
