RESIDENT RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM
Every year, St. Louis area residents are invited to present the background and methods of their residency research projects to GCCP members and other clinical pharmacists in the St. Louis area.
This event is held at St. Louis College of Pharmacy and serves as a venue for residents to get feedback regarding the design of their projects, with the goal that some of the feedback may be incorporated before going up for IRB approval at their various institutions. Dinner is served followed by the residents’ presentations in various different rooms.
Addicted to trivia? Think you can outsmart your friends? Join us at our annual fundraiser! The GCCP trivia night provides an opportunity to socialize and relax while competing for prizes and bragging rights.
Funds raised at this event help support GCCP sponsored activities throughout the year that are not covered by member dues. Non-GCCP members are more than welcome to participate. Start forming your team now! Trivia is held in the Spring.
In the summer, GCCP members are invited to attend the Clinical Jamboree – a night of dinner, drinks, and education!
Clinical pharmacists from the St. Louis area present on a wide variety of topics related to different areas of pharmacy. Have a topic in mind that you would like to hear more about? Let us know, and we can try to incorporate it into next year’s Jamboree!
Business Meeting and Elections
In December, GCCP holds its annual business meeting and elections. This meeting provides an update on the organization’s membership and finances. Dinner and drinks are served, followed by a report from the officers and elections.
