The ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting is the largest gathering of pharmacists in the world. With its focus on improving patient care, the meeting is attended by more than 20,000 pharmacy professionals from 86 countries. For four decades, the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting has provided healthsystem pharmacy practitioners with a venue for updating their knowledge, networking with colleagues, enhancing their skills, and learning about the latest products and technologies.

It is important for PCSP students to attend Midyear because of the vast clinical resources and professional development opportunities. There are many networking opportunities with pharmacists throughout the nation, as well as seminars to prepare our students to be competitive candidates for residency programs. Each year we have students who represent PCSP in the Clinical Skills Competition, present research posters and participate in SSHP student leadership activities. With the onset of our first graduating class, the P4 students have prepared for the residency showcase, a vital part of their P4 year. In addition, students can network with colleagues and pharmacy friends, and develop professionally by attending continuing education programming.
