“IACP has provided me with an incredible opportunity to meet the best and brightest pharmacists and technicians in our compounding profession. Through IACP I have become an active participant in Washington, D.C., as well as in local, state and national initiatives to help ensure that practitioners and the patients they serve continue to have access to the personalized medication solutions they deserve.” – IACP Past President, John Herr, RPh, FIACP, Town & Country Compounding & Consultation.
“Should third-parties reimburse for compounded preparations even if they aren't FDA approved?”
As part of its commitment to education, the IACP Foundation has established the Annual Student Writing Competition to recognize outstanding original papers on pharmacy compounding. The theme, "Should third-parties reimburse for compounded preparations even if they aren't FDA approved?"
Three winners will be selected by a review committee from the papers submitted. The writers of the best three papers will receive a $500 cash prize. All pharmacy students are encouraged to compete. The application deadline is Monday, April 15, 2013.
If you are a pharmacy student preceptor, please make sure that each of your students are aware of this great opportunity to actively participate in the compounding profession.
Future Compounders Help Shape IACP's Student Programs!
IACP held its inaugural Focus Breakfast with College of Pharmacy students during the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Annual Meeting and Exposition held in Los Angeles, Calif., in March 2013. IACP met with future pharmacists to hear their ideas and suggestions for the profession.
