VIP Case Competition

Now in its sixth year, the Value of Industry Pharmacists (VIP) Case Competition has become a highly-recognized IPhO signature program. The goal of the competition is for IPhO chapters to demonstrate their pharmaceutical industry knowledge and application of the commercial functions involved in designing a comprehensive drug development plan, including clinical development, regulatory, medical, and commercial strategies.

This industry-based case scenario takes student pharmacists from initial concept, all the way through to approval and the marketing of the product.

As the competition grows more competitive each year, ALL participating chapter team members should be IPhO National Members. If you have not signed up for a membership yet, you can do so here.
