ACCP Report - June 2020

Oregon State University College of Pharmacy Crowned 2020 ACCP Clinical Research Challenge Champion


Clinical Research Challenge

Competition in the 2020 ACCP Clinical Research Challenge (CRC) began on February 6, with 86 teams vying for a spot in round 2: Letter of Intent (LOI) Submission. Teams achieving the top 40 scores after the initial online Journal Club round submitted an LOI. Teams achieving the top 20 scores after round 2 were invited to compete in round 3: Research Protocol Development. Teams in round 3 were tasked with developing a research proposal designed to demonstrate the clinical pharmacist’s value in an area of endocrinology and were provided with a specific research environment in which to formulate their proposals.

The proposals were reviewed by the CRC Review Panel, and submissions ranking in the top-thirds were referred for evaluation and selection of awards by the CRC Oversight Panel. Please join ACCP in congratulating the finalist teams and the award winners.
