Seeking to Enhance Your Scholarly Activity? Enroll Now in the ACCP Academy Research and Scholarship Certificate Program

The ACCP Academy’s Research and Scholarship Certificate Program is designed to develop basic clinical research and scholarly abilities of clinical pharmacists. Established by ACCP in 2008, the program integrates research theory with practical applications while involving the participant in scholarly work early in the curriculum. Participants are challenged to explore individual professional research and scholarly activity goals to make the experience as relevant as possible within their respective professional contexts. A certificate of completion is awarded to participants who complete 28 contact hours, consisting of 18 hours of required modules and 10 hours of electives. The program’s required modules are as follows:

  • Prerequisite: Research Primer (6 hours)
  • Module 1: Basics of Clinical Research (4 hours)
  • Module 2: Statistical Issues (4 hours)
  • Module 3: Regulatory and Ethical Issues (4 hours)

Each elective module, consisting of 2 contact hours of instruction, is designed to meet the widely varied needs of program participants, focusing on specific areas of research and scholarship not covered in-depth by the required modules.

Begin to position yourself to lead and participate in the future of clinical research by enrolling in the ACCP Academy’s Research and Scholarship Certificate Program. The program’s prerequisite, Research Primer, will be offered Friday, April 19, in conjunction with ACCP’s Updates in Therapeutics® 2013, in Reno, Nevada.
