Purdue IPhO Chapter hosts Midwestern Regional Symposium

Purdue University's IPhO Chapter hosted its 2nd Annual 2017 Industry Pharmacist Symposium on April 8. This year’s event brought together about 50 students from eight Colleges of Pharmacy. It also hosted 9 Speakers from 5 pharmaceutical companies and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Symposium attracted speakers with expertise in regulatory affairs, regulatory policy and administration, commercialization and marketing, and health economics and outcomes research. Participants learned about these fields through interactive workshops that featured real world cases. Students also engaged with speakers in small group discussions that focused on CV development and interviewing principles. In addition, representatives from IPhO Chapters at University of Illinois at Chicago, Midwestern University, and Purdue University provided chapter updates that highlighted various initiatives implemented by the respective chapters. Purdue University IPhO hosts the Industry Pharmacist Symposium annually as an avenue to explore various fields within industry, as well as network with industry pharmacists and fellow students from other Colleges of Pharmacy.
