AACP Meeting in Chicago
American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy
Recently, the Dean of the Mylan School of Pharmacy along with many other faculty members attended the Annual American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) Meeting in Chicago, IL. The meeting, which is considered to be the largest gathering of academic pharmacy educators, offered 70 or more educational programs and workshops for attendees. The interactive programs focus on faculty and leadership development, all while exploring cutting-edge topics with experts and colleagues from around the country. The meeting is a way to immerse faculty and instructors with like-minded colleagues in efforts to sharpen teaching skills and network with other pharmacy schools from across the country.
The event hosted presentations and seminars, along with collaborative educational posters and round table discussions. Many of our own faculty participated in these events.
Much like our own mission, the mission of the AACP is to lead and partner with members in advancing pharmacy education, research, scholarship, practice and service to improve societal health. Founded in 1900, AACP is the national organization representing the interests of pharmacy education. AACP is comprised of all accredited colleges and schools with pharmacy degree programs, including more than 6,500 faculty, 62,500 students enrolled in professional programs and 5,100 individuals pursuing graduate study.
