As we continue to explore leadership opportunities available at the USF College of Pharmacy (COP), please revisit the earlier series posts (LEADERSHIP in the College of Pharmacy and LEADERSHIP in USF COP Professional Pharmacy Organizations Part 1). In part 2, we hear again from the 2013-2014 organization presidents of USF professional pharmacy organizations:
American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) – Steven Guzman
AAPS is an organization dedicated to the advancement of medicine by developing science. This organization provides an open forum for the exchange of scientific knowledge and fosters career growth by providing new information relevant to healthcare and public concern. Leadership opportunities are available in the Executive Committee and students have the opportunity to contribute to the USF booth that will be presented at the annual AAPS conference. Student members that have contributed to any research are encouraged to present at monthly meetings and by doing so will not only embody the vision of AAPS but will gain practical and valuable experience leading scientific discussions among colleagues.
Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) – Jenna Wood
AMCP is a national professional association of pharmacists and health care practitioners who develop and provide clinical, educational and business management services. Leadership opportunities are abundant as our organization strives to grow as the new pharmacy class enters! At the school level, AMCP sets no limitations on the number of leadership positions. Therefore, in the 2013-2014 school year, I am eager for the leadership team to grow and have the ability to appoint new positions. Particularly if any student has fundraising experience or enjoys planning events, I would love to hear from you. If any student thinks they can contribute something to the leadership team or needs more information, please feel free to contact me.
