Annual Meeting Events for Students, Trainees & Young Professionals  

Student, Trainee & Young Professional (STYP) membership and participation in ACCP’s Annual Meeting are strongly encouraged and are beneficial on several levels: 
  • Substantially-discounted registration fees for the Annual Meeting and free or discounted fees to other educational events on cutting-edge, relevant topics related to clinical pharmacology and the optimal use of therapeutics. These interactions provide Students, Trainees & Young Professionals with access to a forum for new scientific ideas and healthcare professionals of various disciplines meeting to discuss areas of common interest.

  • ACCP Student Abstract Awards Program is designed to recognize outstanding research abstracts submitted by Students & Trainees at the Annual Meeting. Each award consists of a certificate, a $1,000 honorarium, a complimentary Annual Meeting registration and an invitation to the Board of Regents Dinner at the Annual Meeting.

  • From the pool of Student Abstract Award winners, one is selected to receive the Wayne A. Colburn Memorial Award, as judged by the Program Committee during the Poster Sessions at the Annual Meeting. The winner of the Wayne A. Colburn Memorial Award will also receive a plaque and an additional honorarium of $500. At the time the award is presented, the author will be asked to give a 5 – 10 minute presentation, using 2 – 3 slides, outlining the results.

Student, Trainee & Young Professional-specific Events

In conjunction with the Student, Trainee & Young Professional Committee, ACCP has planned a series of events to enhance the professional growth of Students, Trainees & Young Professionals. These events are provided at no cost to Annual Meeting attendees, we simply ask that you RSVP when ACCP contacts you about participating so we hold a place for you! 

  • Student, Trainee & Young Professional (STYP) Welcome Breakfast - All STYP attendees are invited to a welcome breakfast with ACCP Mentors. This higher access to ACCP leadership over breakfast and a sit-down roundtable session provides an intimate opportunity to discuss career guidance, educational options, opportunities for further involvement in ACCP, how to subsequently grow in the organization throughout their careers or any other topics of concern.   

  • Panel Discussion on Career Guidance – A select group of ACCP Mentors whose careers have spanned various settings and disciplines within the field of clinical pharmacology will share their experiences and answer your questions in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. If you are considering a career that includes any combination of academia, industry, regulatory or clinical roles, don’t miss this opportunity to hear what the experts have to say about how their own career paths progressed and what guidance they can provide to ensure your personal success!

  • Podium Presentations – Immediately following the Panel Discussion, a select number of Student Abstract Award winners will present their research in a Podium Presentation to an audience of Annual Meeting attendees. Support your colleagues by being part of this important event.   

  • Student Networking Reception – After the Podium Presentations, join us for the Student Networking Reception where you can interact on a more personal level with Panel Discussion speakers and other ACCP Mentors to ask the burning questions that will help you make decisions about your future.
