The American College of Clinical Pharmacology® invites Pre-meeting Workshop & Symposia Proposals for the ACCP Annual Meeting on an annual basis.
The Annual Meeting provides both Pre-meeting Workshop courses and Symposium courses. Workshop Proposals can be submitted as either a half- (3.5 hours) or full-day. Proposals for Symposia are defined as short courses (90 minutes) or half-day (3 hours).
Proposals must be designed to address a gap in professional knowledge, skills or performance which a healthcare team would utilize to improve patient outcomes or the healthcare profession. (For example, the Proposal is based on new regulations/standards or guidelines, national health data or reports or issues/concerns described in the professional literature). Proposals must present valid content that adhere to generally-accepted standards of experimental design and contribute to healthcare improvements for patients and/or their communities. As a provider of Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE), Proposals submitted to ACCP must integrate two or more professions in the planning process which represent the intended target audience, spanning the spectrum from research and drug development to regulatory and clinicians.
ACCP encourages the consideration of diversity in the selection of Faculty Speakers for any given session.
For each Proposal submitted, the submitter and at least one (1) Session Co-chair must be a current Member of ACCP at the time of submission and at the time of the ACCP Annual Meeting in which the event will be held.
Proposals must include all of the information as noted in the Proposal Submission System. Proposals will be reviewed for merit by the Annual Meeting Program Committee. Proposals that are incomplete will not be reviewed and Proposals that do not meet these guidelines will not be accepted.
Course Chair Responsibilities
Once a Proposal is accepted, the Course Chair is responsible for final confirmation of the Faculty Speaker roster, communicating course goals and expectations to Faculty Speaker and working with ACCP Staff to ensure that the course meets all ACCP Faculty Speaker requirements.
Basic audiovisual support will be provided (LCD projector/screen, podium with microphone, laser pointer and laptop and a head table with chairs). Additional audiovisual support may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Course Chair(s) & Faculty Speaker Selection
Course Chair(s) and Faculty Speakers should be chosen to ensure that the course is fair and balanced and represents the various stakeholders (academic, regulatory, industry, clinical, patients, etc.) with an interest in the topic. ACCP encourages the consideration of diversity in the selection of Faculty Speakers for any given session.
Course Budget Planning
ACCP provides a course budget based upon the length of the course. Budgets are set at $1,200 per 90-minute course and $2,000 per 3 – 3.5-hour course.
