In 2007, the AACP Educating Clinical Scientist Task Force proposed a policy encouraging colleges and schools of pharmacy associated with Academic Health Centers (AHC) to offer an interdisciplinary Ph.D. education/training program for clinical scientists in experimental therapeutics. To assist existing programs and those colleges and schools that are planning such programs, AACP will convene a Graduate Education/Training in Experimental Pharmacotherapeutics Summit on Sunday, Nov. 8, 2009 in Los Angeles, Calif. at the University of Southern California. Registration for the summit is $75, and registration forms will be available from AACP in mid-September. The number of conference registrants is limited to 100 so register early.
