New This Year

More Fitness Opportunities

Fitness enthusiasts are welcome to enjoy a sunrise yoga class that allows all fitness levels to participate. The class will be held in a carpeted room so mats are not required. Feeling like something more energetic? Jump start your morning and join your colleagues in a 45-minute high energy circuit workout. This aerobic workout puts the emphasis as much on having fun as breaking a sweat. All levels welcome.

CE Credits

Pharmacy Education 2016 is the first annual meeting in which AACP will offer continuing education credit directly to attendees. Attendees will be able to earn up to 19.5 hours of CE credits during the meeting and an additional 5.25 hours if attending the Teachers Seminar.

Conference Highlights

After a successful first year, the New or Junior Faculty Mentoring Program will pair individuals with more experienced faculty to understand Annual Meeting programming, learn about networking opportunities and share daily experiences.

At the 2016 Development Directors SIG session, Exploring Today’s World of Development and Fundraising, deans, development officers and other professionals will participate in a conversation about philanthropy and the many factors affecting the field. Participants will share ideas, talk about best practices and explore current topics of interest to all who cultivate support for institutions. Saturday, July 23, 8:30 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

The 2016 Teachers Seminar, Dialogue on Foundations of Teaching, will offer two tracks. The first, Building the Foundation to be a Great Teacher, will be aimed at Walmart Scholars, their mentors and faculty in the first few years of their academic year, and will feature a series of Ted-talk style presentations. The second track, Utilizing the Patient Care Process as a Framework for the Pharm.D. Curriculum, is open to all other attendees and will include many active learning techniques to generate ideas about how to best make curricular changes. Saturday, July 23, 8:30 a.m.–3:15 p.m.

Returning for a second year is the Joseph T. DiPiro Excellence in Publishing Workshop, which provides authors with an overview of the essentials of excellence when submitting manuscripts to the American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education (AJPE). This year's workshop will include new and improved handouts and an extended breakout session during which authors can discuss specific issues with the editors of AJPE. Saturday, July 23, 8:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m.

Quality reviews produce better papers and stronger grant proposals. At the interactive workshop, Enhancing Your Impact as a Scholar: Learning the Art and Science of Being an Effective Reviewer, scholars who may have limited experience as reviewers are presented with an overview of how to provide authors with constructive, critical reviews of their manuscripts and grants. With a specific emphasis on peer review of manuscripts for AJPE and grant proposals submitted to the AACP New Investigator Award, this workshop will feature experts from both areas and include breakout sessions to discuss what to do, and what not to do as an effective peer reviewer. Saturday, July 23, 1:00 p.m.–3:15 p.m.

The learning, networking and collaboration continue at the Tuesday General Session and culminate at the Closing Reception on Tuesday, July 26.
