Build “Team Science” Leaders: 2015-16 Academic Research Fellows Program Accepting Applications
AACP has modified the timing for the first session of Cohort 3 of the Academic Research Fellows Program to ensure that Fellows will receive all the benefits of this career-transforming program. Rather than convening the first of four sessions in mid-September, the first session will now be held in November 2015, in Bethesda, Md.

Sessions 2-4 will occur as originally scheduled in January, March and July 2016. This permits AACP to receive applications from interested scientists who aspire to become leaders in the development of a wide range of research areas through Monday, August 3. More information is coming soon.

Apply for the New Consultants and Speakers Bureau
Are you an expert in a specialty area of pharmacy education? Then share your knowledge and talents by applying to be part of AACP’s new Consultants and Speakers Bureau. This new member service connects experienced, talented professionals with organizations, universities and individuals who are searching for experts within academic pharmacy.
Applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis, however the deadline for the initial consultants and speakers to be included in the bureau is Saturday, August 15. For more information, including suggested specialty areas, visit the AACP Web site.

Join a Special AIMM Collaborative Cohort of AACP-convened Teams
Join an AACP cohort of teams to help lead a national movement that places academic pharmacy as a strategic partner in promoting medication management services. Schools of pharmacy will collaborate with a community practice site to redefine and transform patient care, reach the next level of coordinated healthcare, and integrate medication management services into interprofessional healthcare teams.

AIMMc provides the infrastructure, resources and expertise to guide and support you through the process. Reduced fees for AACP-participating teams apply, including $1,000 savings per team; you can join the collaborative year for $4,000. The deadline to apply is Tuesday, June 30. This special collaborative kicks off with a live learning session during the AACP Annual Meeting, July 11-15 in National Harbor, Md. Teams that register by Sunday, May 31 are invited to take advantage of prework opportunities with current AIMMc teams during the month of June. For further information, to listen to an informational Webinar, and to register for the collaborative, visit the AIMM Web site.
