Student Posters

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 via the online registration form no later than April 15, 2019. Selected students will be notified through email 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.

Poster information

  • 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.
