Education & Student Activities


Announcing the Spring 2014 Student Writing Competition

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 is, "The Role of Compounding Accreditation in Today's Pharmacy Environment."

Three winners will be selected by a review committee from the papers submitted and the writers of the best three papers will receive a $500 cash prize.  All pharmacy students are encouraged to compete.  The application deadline is April 15, 2014.

If you are a faculty member or a pharmacy student preceptor, make sure that each of your students know about this great opportunity to actively participate in the compounding profession.  For those of you who have student pharmacists on rotation at your practice, this makes a great assignment for them!
