PCSP Clinical Pharmacy Challenge Team
Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy’s ACCP Clinical Pharmacy Challenge team made it to the Top 16 teams in the nation in the 2014 ACCP Clinical Pharmacy Challenge.
In this annual competition, one team from each institution consisting of three students competes against teams from various schools and colleges of pharmacy. Each round consists of questions in the form of Trivia, Clinical Case and Jeopardy style. Eligible teams have the opportunity to compete in up to four online rounds, with the top eight teams advancing to the live quarterfinal competition at the ACCP Annual Meeting. This event is important because it is a chance for students to use their clinical knowledge that they have learned in school and apply it to clinically based questions. Also, it gives students a chance to compete against some of the top ranked pharmacy schools in the nation. The content used in these questions has been developed and reviewed by a panel of clinical pharmacy practitioners and educators.
The members of our ACCP Clinical Pharmacy Challenge Team were Jason Jones, Steven Robinette and Caleb Wallace.
“I enjoyed being on team Steven and Caleb because we all have different personalities but worked well together. We all had different aspects of pharmacy that we were very knowledgeable about which was one of the reasons we were able to excel and progress so far in this tournament. This was my second time competing in the challenge for PCSP,” stated Jason. “Overall this challenge for me was a great learning experience and it shows how PCSP is greatly preparing us to be great pharmacist in today’s society. ”
A huge congratulation goes out to these three students for leading the Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy to the Top 16 and advancing all the way to Round 4!
