MSHP is pleased to host their fourth annual Student Leadership Workshop on Saturday, July 14th, 2018.
The workshop will be held from 8am – 1pm at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. All pharmacy students are welcome to attend! The goal of this workshop is to spark awareness of and interest in leadership opportunities in our community and profession.
This year, the program will focus on Pharmacy Forecast and include small breakout sessions where students will network with one another and pharmacist leaders. Pharmacy Forecast is an annual report published by the ASHP Research and Education Foundation. It provides insight into emerging trends and phenomena that affect the practice of pharmacy and patient care and helps to improve the effectiveness of leaders in hospital and health-system pharmacy practice by helping them plan for the future. Pharmacy Forecast reports the results of a survey of trend watchers in health-system pharmacy, analyzes predicted trends and presents more than 40 authoritative, actionable strategic recommendations to pharmacy practice leaders.
All students are invited to participate - you do not need to present a poster in order to attend.
• Dr. John Hill, Operations Manager of the Adult Inpatient Pharmacy, The Johns Hopkins Hospital
• Dr. Majid Tanas, Chief of the Pharmacy Department, NIH Clinical Center
• Dr. Long Trinh, Operations Manager of Pharmacy Services, Oregon Health & Science University
Attendees will also have the opportunity to present the work that they have accomplished within their respective school of pharmacy organizations and communities. We recognize that pharmacy students are involved with important and innovative activities that promote the profession of pharmacy and provide patient care. We invite attendees to share their work by creating poster board presentations. By sharing information regarding student led activities, we hope that attendees will find ways to develop their leadership skills, improve upon similar activities, learn about new activities to implement and identify opportunities to collaborate with one another.
Past presentation topics include:
• Developing a graduate teaching certificate program
• Creating a pharmacy student led, technician certification review program
• Creating a mentorship program for student leaders
• Creating and maintaining student led CPR training courses
• Implementing Spanish counselling practice sessions
*These activities should be examples of student led projects that engage others (i.e. patients, providers, pharmacists, students, etc.) and advance the practice of pharmacy and patient care.
If interested, students shall submit a summary of one to three unique and successful leadership activities that they have been involved in during pharmacy school. The summary shall be no more than two pages total (for up to three summaries), double spaced, size 12 font, and 1-inch margins. Summaries shall be submitted to Dr. Sujin Weinstein via email by Friday, June 15th. The meeting registration shall be completed separately; student registration will be $25 for MSHP non-members and $15 for MSHP members. Selected students will be notified through email by Monday, June 18th and assigned one activity to present either individually or as a group, i.e. with other student attendees from their college of pharmacy who also worked on the same activity. You do not need to present a post in order to attend the meeting.
• If selected, student(s) will be responsible for purchasing the poster board and materials to create a poster board presentation (i.e. Elmer’s trifold project display board (corrugated or foam), 36x48. Available at Target or Michaels).
• There are no formal guidelines on how to design the poster board – it should describe the assigned activity and provide enough information for other attendees to understand the activity, including but not limited to the goals, target population, methods to carry out the activity, outcomes, lessons learned, opportunities for improvement, etc.
We hope you will join us this year! For more information, please visit the Maryland Society of Health-System Pharmacists’ website: http://www.mshp.org/
