In her nomination letter, the pharmacy student submitting Waller for Preceptor of the Year says, “it is obvious that Tyler loves what he does and that he wants to impact that on his students. Tyler is really good at getting me to think more critically; whenever a teaching opportunity arises, he uses it to get me to start thinking like a Pharmacist out in practice...Tyler has a wonderful collaborative working relationship with all members of the health care team at this institution and it is obvious that he has very high standards for himself as a professional.”

Waller says, “I am very honored and surprised to have received this award at such an early point in my career. It is a passion of mine to mentor and help students gain the knowledge that can prepare them for their own careers. I know how important it is for students to be able to put their skills into practice right away. I am very humbled and grateful to be a recipient of this award.”
