1. We request that a minimum of one (two is preferred) of your three references come from a preceptor who you have worked with in a clinical setting, related to an APPE in acute or ambulatory care. The clinical preceptor should be able to comment on your scope of responsibility, total patient load, level of autonomy, clinical abilities, and organizational and time management skills. All 3 reference writers should use the standard PhORCAS template to submit their candidate recommendation and comment on a minimum of 7 of the 13 listed candidate characteristics.

2. A response to the following essay statement is required for acceptance. The essay response should be no longer than one page in length. An application will not be reviewed if this statement is missing. Please note that the essay is separate from your letter of intent. Reflecting on your APPE rotations, please provide a piece of critical feedback you have received from one of your preceptors on a direct patient care rotation. Explain how you have incorporated this feedback into your practice and/or worked to improve in this area.
