ASHP Student Chapter Earns National Recognition
The Duquesne University School of Pharmacy's student chapter of American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) received the organization's Outstanding Professional Development Project Award for the second consecutive year. According to Dr. David Zimmerman, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice, this award was given to only 25 of 132 national chapters.
Projects were evaluated on four categories: content and information; creativity and resourcefulness; service, outreach and impact; and overall impression.
"We received this award for our rendition of the mock interviews that we host in the spring," Zimmerman said.
Lori Melikian, president of Duquesne's student chapter, will be recognized at the Pharmacy Student Forum Awards Ceremony at the ASHP Midyear meeting, which will be held in Las Vegas from December 4-8, 2016.
Duquesne School of Pharmacy's winning project will be included on ASHP's Share and Reapply webpage so that other student chapters looking for project ideas can use it as a resource.
