SCSHP (South Carolina Society of Health-System Pharmacists)

Hi!  I’m Courtney, and I’m currently a P3 here at PCSP.  As a PCSP student, we are required to attend at least one local, state, or national pharmacy professional meeting or continuing education program each year.  Therefore, I wanted to share with you about the South Carolina Society of Health-System Pharmacists (SCSHP) Fall Meeting many of our students attended in Columbia, SC last month.

The student track for the SCSHP Fall Meeting started off by allowing students to get information from a variety of drug companies as well as network with health-system pharmacists and other SC pharmacy students.  Next, students were given the opportunity to learn about tips when applying for residency programs and were educated on different pharmacy topics that are important in today’s society.  After that, some PCSP students competed against other SC pharmacy students in a Clinical Skills Competition, where students were given a clinical scenario and developed a care plan based on their knowledge and the use of drug information resources.

The meeting ended with a residency showcase, where students were able to meet with residency program directors and get information from the different programs.  The following hospitals participated in the showcase: Charles George VA Medical Center, GA Health Sciences/UGA College of Pharmacy, Greenville Hospital System, McLeod Regional Medical Center, Palmetto Health Richland, SC College of Pharmacy, Spartanburg Regional, St Joseph’s/Candler Hospital, UT Medical Center, and WJB Dorn VA Medical Center.

I hope you will consider joining our PCSP family and come enjoy the many benefits that meetings like the SCSHP Fall Meeting have to offer to our students.  I wish you the best of luck in your future pharmacy career. =)
