Preceptor Design Lab: Accessibility in Didactic and Experiential Settings

March 10, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm







Spring 2022 CIPhER programs will only be offered via Zoom.

Co-sponsored by CIPhER – Center for Innovative Pharmacy Education & Research and the Office of Experiential Programs

Preceptor Design Lab: Accessibility in Didactic and Experiential Settings

12:00 pm – 1:00 p.m., Thursday, March 10, 2022, via Zoom

Addressing ability and accommodations in didactic and experiential settings may improve student retention as well as health outcomes of patients. Learning about the ways that people with disabilities are treated and considered in a medical setting significantly impacts the level of care delivered. Providing accommodations to students and designing courses where considerations of differing abilities are made as a part of the design are instrumental to creating an environment where everyone is fully engaged and respected.

Learning Objectives:  At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe why and how diagnoses are useful and when they are unhelpful or even damaging
  2. Explain the different models of disability and their impacts
  3. Summarize legal obligations under ADA and Section 504 to accommodate students participating in programmatic and fieldwork experiences
  4. Identify ideas to design learning experiences for universal learner accessibility

Target Audience:  This program is designed for all preceptors, faculty, staff and trainees.

Registration:  For non-UNC affiliates, registration is $15.00. (UNC Affiliates are considered to be faculty, staff, trainees, students, preceptors and residents who currently work for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill or support its students.)

REGISTRATION DEADLINE:  Friday, March 4, at 5 p.m.
