Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, University of the Pacific is sending a team of three pharmacy candidates to compete in the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP) Clinical Challenge in Pittsburgh, PA. This is the first time the School is participating in the competition. The Clinical Challenge will take place during the ACCP Annual meeting from October 15-17, 2011. Students will be competing against other students from pharmacy schools across the country in a quiz-bowl style competition. Some of the topics include pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, biostatistics, clinical pharmacy history, and various disease states.

Jerline Hsin '12, Ian Ford '12 and Ryan Conrad '12 represented Pacific in the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP) Clinical Challenge in October. As a team, they competed with over 100 teams in the United States and advanced through four online rounds. Currently, Pacific is one of two teams representing California and one of the top eight pharmacy schools in the country. Our team made it to the quarterfinals but unfortunately did not make it to the final round.

Join us in congratulating our team, the co-chairs of NCCCP (Northern California College of Clinical Pharmacy), and Dr. William Kehoe '95 for their hard work in planning and preparing the students for the competition.

"It's one of the biggest draws and everyone was aware of Pacific at this large meeting of some of the most cutting edge clinical pharmacists in the country. It was a great day!" said Dr. Kehoe.
