ACCP Clinical Pharmacy Challenge


The ACCP Clinical Pharmacy Challenge is a team-based competition. Teams of three students will compete against teams from other schools and colleges of pharmacy in a "quiz bowl"–type format. It is time to select this year's team. All interested P4 and P3 students should email Dr. Longyhore by August 29 if they would like to be considered for the team. On August 31, a Wilkes competition will he held (online, throughout the day and evening) to pick the top three competitors and two alternates. Each year, Wilkes submits a team to compete in the preliminary online stages with hopes of making it to the live competition at the ACCP Annual Meeting.

Each round will consist of questions offered in the three distinct segments (Trivia/Lightning; Clinical Case; Jeopardy-style ). Item content used in each segment has been developed and reviewed by an expert panel of clinical pharmacy practitioners and educators.
Each team advancing to the quarterfinal round held at the ACCP Annual Meeting (Hollywood, FL) will receive three complimentary student full meeting registrations. Each team member will receive an ACCP gift certificate for $125 and a certificate of recognition. In addition to the above, semifinal teams not advancing to the final round will receive a semifinal team plaque for display at their institution. The second-place team will receive a $750 cash award ($250 to each member) and a commemorative team plaque. The winning team will receive a $1500 cash award ($500 to each member), and each team member will receive a commemorative plaque. A team trophy will be awarded to the winning institution. Students are not required to be members of ACCP to participate.
