“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.








IACP Foundation Fund-the-Future Program


The IACP Foundation’s Fund-the-Future program raises monies to bring pharmacy students to two of the most important events in pharmacy compounding – Compounders on Capitol Hill (CCH) and IACP Educational Conference.



IACP Foundation's Fund-the-Future program began a few years ago with one student attending Compounders on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The next year there were three students. In 2013, six students, and eight in 2014. Today, the program has been expanded to both Compounders on Capitol Hill and to the Educational Conference events!

Resources for pharmacy students

USP has so graciously offered several free resources for our current IACP student members.

  • Academic Pharmacy Resource Program (APRP)

USP offers free access to USP-NF, USP dictionary, and FCC for pharmacy school students. This is usually set up through the pharmacy school librarian (or other contact) and access is granted to all students through the school library.

USP has a library of 81 pictograms which are standardized graphic images to help convey medication instructions, precautions, and warnings. These also are available to download at USP’s website.
