Transplant pharmacy program student and resident announcement

Have you ever thought about becoming a transplant pharmacist?

Imagine a specialty within pharmacy that blends every aspect of the profession into one complete job description, a career where you can play the role of pharmacist, researcher, teacher, and primary care provider. One where you can flex your critical care, internal medicine, and infectious disease muscles for a single patient. Picture yourself working with patients who are on multiple medications and must be monitored and managed in order to ensure complete patient well-being. The very success of these patients would rest largely on your collaboration with their health care team.

Does this job description sound exciting to you? If so, please see below for details about this exciting opportunity.

A special seminar for students will be held during the American Transplant Congress at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Sunday May 3 from 2:15 pm-5:30 pm. The first part of the seminar will focus on the fundamental concepts of transplantation. Content experts will give 15 minute talks about various topics related to transplantation. These include talks on medication management, infectious disease, research and more. Part two of the seminar will involve breakout sessions for various fields of interest in transplantation, including pharmacy. At the breakout session, a panel of transplant pharmacists will speak to why they chose transplant pharmacy as a career path and why they love what they do. Students will have the opportunity to ask the panelists questions at the conclusion of this session.

The cost for attending this session is only $25 on site the day of the conference. It also includes access to the posters, exhibit hall, sunrise, midday, plenary and concurrent sessions. The student rate is not intended for poster or oral abstract presenters. Verification is required onsite. Residents must provide a letter from their program director; students should contact their department chairs.

Please see the attached flyer for additional information on the seminar.
