ACCP Activities

Annual Meeting

The ACCP Annual Meeting is held in the fall of each year and includes a wide variety of educational Workshops and Symposia on cutting-edge, relevant topics related to clinical pharmacology and the optimal use of therapeutics. The Annual Meeting provides a forum for new scientific ideas and brings together healthcare professionals of various disciplines to meet and discuss areas of common interest. Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Pharmacy Education (CPE) credits are offered.


ACCP actively supports the establishment of local and international chapters. These chapters provide Members with the opportunity to interact with colleagues and exchange ideas on a regular basis. Each chapter has its own governing body and is responsible for local programs. Contact today about establishing a chapter.


ACCP owns The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (JCP), the premier journal in the field of clinical pharmacology. Published for more than 50 years and issued monthly, JCP focuses on exceptional, peer-reviewed articles that span the breadth of research and drug development to clinical care and include original research, educational series and editorials. CME and CPE credits are offered for Journal CE articles each month. In 2011, ACCP launched its second publication, Clinical Pharmacology in Drug Development (CPDD), an international, peer-reviewed journal focused on publishing high-quality clinical pharmacology studies in drug development which are primarily (but not exclusively) performed in early development phases in healthy subjects. Acceptance of a manuscript in CPDD will be determined by scientific rigor and technical soundness rather than perceived importance of the presented results. Thus, negative study results are explicitly not an obstacle for positive acceptance decisions. Only original research papers can be submitted in unsolicited form to CPDD. Editorials and reviews are considered by invitation only. 

Medical College Education

ACCP’s primary focus is to advance the teaching, research and service functions of clinical pharmacology in patient care. Working in conjunction with the Association of American Medical Colleges, ACCP strives to improve the quality of instruction in clinical pharmacology and its position in curriculum planning at medical colleges around the world.

Interaction and Cooperation

ACCP actively supports scientific forums for clinical pharmacology around the world, participating in joint programming with a variety of individuals and organizations who are similarly focused and with whom ACCP can reach a larger audience.
