ACCP Academy Programming
The foundational prerequisite courses for the Teaching and Learning program and the Career Advancement program will be offered as premeeting symposia on Saturday, October 20. Also offered during the premeeting symposia will be a required course for the Research and Scholarship program.
The Career Advancement Primer is the required prerequisite course for the ACCP Academy Career Advancement Certificate. The primer is a full-day course designed to provide a framework for developing a strategic plan in your professional advancement. Clinical pharmacy professionals from successful clinical practices will share strategies to justify your clinical services, engage in your own professional development, and cultivate productive relationships in team and collaborative patient care environments.
Basic Training for New Clinical Faculty and Preceptors serves as the required prerequisite course for the ACCP Academy Teaching and Learning Certificate Program. Designed to provide a foundation for faculty and preceptors beginning their careers, this full-day course engages participants in thoughtful discussions and small group exercises. As one of ACCP’s best-received educational courses, Basic Training successfully builds young academicians’ base knowledge in planning, implementing, and assessing student learning.
Regulatory/Ethical Issues is a ½-day course that serves as required module 3 in the ACCP Academy Research and Scholarship Certificate Program. This session addresses the operational and ethical issues associated with developing and directing clinical research. Attendees can expect up-to-the-minute perspectives on human subjects’ protection, informed consent, HIPAA, IRBs, and cultural competency. The highly experienced faculty will lead interactive discussions about recognizing author responsibilities, managing misconduct allegations, and navigating the IRB. The course integrates case studies that focus on ethical, legal, and social issues. Also discussed are budget management, quality control processes, and appropriate data management to ensure data integrity.
Premeeting symposia developed by the ACCP Academy are required components of each respective ACCP Academy Certificate Program; however, interested attendees need not be enrolled in the ACCP Academy to participate.
Designed exclusively for students, the Career Development Symposium is a 2-hour meeting designed to help students reach their professional goals. This dynamic session will offer student attendees the opportunity to gain perspectives from a panel of professionals representing academia, administration, clinical specialty, and the pharmaceutical industry.
