Association Management Rotation at the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy

This elective Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) provides student pharmacists with a unique and innovative opportunity to mature professionally in accordance with their individual interests. During this rotation, students will work closely with the Senior Vice President of Professional Development, the Senior Director of Academic Services, the Academic Leadership and Education Fellow, and other AACP staff members. As a part of the AACP team, the student will participate in daily association management practices while contributing to the various programs, products, and services offered to AACP members in alignment with the association's 2021–2024 Strategic Plan. The rotation is designed to be 4 weeks in duration. However, longer rotation schedules may be accommodated on an individual basis. Available rotation months are generally September, October, January, March, and April. This is planned to be a completely virtual rotation. For more detailed information, please see the AACP APPE Syllabus.
