The Power of Girls P.3 Diversity in Practice P.3 Upcoming Events P.4 Dr. Julie Murphy discusses a poster with students at the SCCP Student Research Symposium in March 2014 SCCP Student Research Symposium The Student College of Clinical Pharmacy (SCCP) at The University of Toledo is the student chapter of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (ACCP), a national professional and scientific society that provides leadership, education, advocacy, and resources enabling clinical pharmacists to achieve excellence in practice and research. SCCP, which was officially recognized by ACCP in fall 2013, is one of 26 student chapters in the country. Students in SCCP have been very active in promoting clinical pharmacy and expanding awareness among the student population. The organization hosts Lunch-n-Learn sessions, during which seminars about current topics in clinical pharmacy such as obesity and the new American Heart Association lipid guidelines are discussed. In March 2014, SCCP hosted its first annual Student Research Symposium in The Frederic and Mary Wolfe Center, drawing students, faculty members and members of the community to student presentations about their research in pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences. Students presented scientific posters or delivered a platform presentation about their research during the four-hour event. The students who participated are interested in clinical research, and their experience in SCCP will prepare them for residency training after earning the Doctor of Pharmacy degree. Clinical Associate Professor Julie Murphy, PharmD „01, is the adviser for SCCP. “It was exciting to hear about the research conducted by our 11 participating student researchers,” Dr. Murphy said. “Students in attendance who were not presenting research heard ideas about how to get involved in research within our college. SCCP looks forward to expanding the event next year.”
