SSHP Residency Panel 2014

pcsp-sshp-residency-panel-2014

On the evening of Tuesday, April 2, 2014, Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy’s officially recognized chapter of the Student Society of Health-System Pharmacy (SSHP) held its third annual residency information session.  A residency program is a year or two of postgraduate training that pharmacists complete in order to gain clinical experience, and then participants have the option to complete a second year specialized residency in an area of interest such as pediatrics, geriatrics, or oncology.  The main duty of a resident is to learn.  During a residency, pharmacists typically complete a longitudinal research project, which is presented at the annual Southeastern Residency Conference.  This year’s panel was moderated by Dr. Brandon Bookstaver, the Immediate Past President of the South Carolina Society of Health-System Pharmacists;

“This event is very important,” says Caleb Wallace, the current SSHP President.  “It helps our members learn how to become strong residency candidates, and it allows them to network with residency program directors and current residents.”

Representatives from many of South Carolina’s top pharmacy residency programs made the drive to Clinton to attend the event, including Greenville Health System, McLeod Regional Medical Center, Palmetto Health Richland, and Spartanburg Regional.

Other guests in attendance included Dr. John Pearson, the current President of the South Carolina Society of Health-System Pharmacists: as well as PCSP’s own Dr. Nancy Goodbar, the current President-Elect of the South Carolina Society of Health-System Pharmacists and faculty advisor of PCSP’s chapter of SSHP.

Now Accepting Applications for Summer Intern Positions

PCSP PRSI Interns

New discoveries are made one student at a time!
Summer 2014 (May 28-July 23)

Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy has created the Pharmacy Research Summer Interns (PRSI) program to enrich the academic experience of pharmacy students and pre-pharmacy undergraduates through research opportunities in pharmacy practice, pharmaceutical administration, pharmaceutics, and biomedical sciences. The PRSI program enables students to build faculty mentoring relationships and professional research experience, and to creatively explore their interests at a more in-depth level than can be attained in the classroom. The PRSI program provides opportunities for pharmacy students to build a competitive edge in the job market and for undergraduate pre-pharmacy students to strengthen their Pharmacy School applications.

Each Intern receives a $3,000 stipend for 8 weeks of full time faculty-mentored research at Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy. Students are responsible for their own housing. This highly competitive program runs from May 28-July 23, 2014. Selection is based on the student’s previous academic success, their interest in Pharmacy research, and the matching of student research interests with participating faculty.
