  • Student, Trainee & Early-stage Professional (STEP) Welcome Breakfast - ACCP will welcome Students, Trainees & Early-stage Professionals and provide them with an opportunity to meet ACCP Leadership in a casual setting to discuss career guidance, educational options, opportunities for further involvement in ACCP, how to subsequently grow in the organization throughout their careers and any number of other topics of interest.

  • Early-stage Professionals Gathering (1  10 years in first full-time position) – Join other Early-stage Professionals and learn about programs ACCP is developing to support your professional growth

As you prepare for future positions, it is critical to understand generational differences in communication styles. This panel discussion will address topics such as how junior and senior colleagues tackle problem solving differently due to technological advances and how clinical pharmacology colleagues at different career levels teach each other to ensure success.
