Clinical Research Challenge

Clinical Research Challenge

ACCP’s innovative and unique competition offers teams of three pharmacy students the chance to participate in an online journal club and submit a clinical research proposal. Team Registration Deadline: February 8, 2023.

The competition is only open to pharmacy students pursuing their first professional pharmacy degree from an accredited institution, or one that has been granted candidate status, who are in the first 2 years of their first professional pharmacy degree program (P1 and P2 students for 4-year programs; P1 and P2 students for 3-year accelerated programs; and the first 2 professional years of 0- to 6-year or 0- to 7-year programs). Only one team per institution can enter the competition. Institutions with branch campuses, distance satellites, or more than one interested team are encouraged to conduct a local competition. ACCP provides a written examination that institutions may use as a basis for their local competition. This examination can be requested via email by the ACCP faculty liaison or registering faculty member. Please address the email request to Michelle Kucera, Pharm.D., BCPS, at

Students are not required to be members of ACCP to participate. Team registration should be submitted online and must be initiated by a current faculty member at the respective institution. Students interested in forming a team should contact their ACCP faculty liaison. The deadline to complete team registration and confirm eligibility is February 8, 2023.
