"I have been a College member since 2003 and a Fellow since 2008. Since my days as a graduate student in pharmaceutical sciences, the College has been important to me as a venue in which to present my work, meet colleagues and keep up with the field. As a graduate student, the College provided guidance concerning my research directions and later data interpretation in the broader context of clinical pharmacology. As a Ph.D. scientist working in the Department of Surgery on cancer biology, the College is my primary source of information on the ever changing filed of pharmaceutical sciences. Further, as a Fellow of the College, participation on a variety of committees has broadened my horizons. My advice to potential applicants is to get involved with the ACCP and do it early in your career."

I have been actively involved with the College since 2001 when I joined as a Student Member. Since that time, the College has played a critical role in shaping my professional development, The College provides an ideal platform for Members to formulate and execute initiatives which help to promote the discipline of clinical pharmacology. For example, with the encouragement and support from the College's leadership and to help promote the academic and professional development of students, I formulated and led the Student Outreach Initiative. The College duly recognizes the contributions of its Members. which is strongly attested by the fact that based on my commitment to the College and the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (JCP), I was elected to serve on the Board of Regents. I strongly believe that ACCP has and will continue to foster the professional growth of its members.

"I joined ACCP in July 2008 as a Student Member. Since joining, I have been able to benefit from the educational, leadership and networking opportunities which the organization provides. Also, by participating in the Student Outreach and Education Committees, I have been exposed to some of the day-to-day decisions related to coordinating student activities and ACCP Annual Meetings. ACCP is a close-knit organization with a great support staff that genuinely would like to meet the needs of its membership. I would encourage students with an interest in clinical pharmacology to get involved and help shape the future of the organization."
