APhA Academy of Pharmacy Practice and Management (APhA–APPM)
The APhA Academy of Pharmacy Practice and Management (APhA-APPM) is dedicated to assisting members in enhancing the profession of pharmacy, improving medication use, and advancing patient care. APhA-APPM has several special interest groups (SIGs) that residents can be involved in. Many SIGs have committees and work groups where APhA members can create resources, hold webinars, and work on various initiatives to support other pharmacist members in their practice.
Another opportunity for involvement is with the APhA–APPM Pharmacy Residency Standing Committee, which provides opportunities for involvement during the residency year to residents nationwide. The purpose of this committee is to increase communication and interaction among pharmacy residents and fellows, grow leadership skills, and share best practices among postgraduate trainees across the country.
With APhA–APPM and its Pharmacy Residency Standing Committee, you can connect with other pharmacy residents and fellows as well as learn more about available residency resources, tools, and elected and non-elected opportunities.
Reach out to Margaret Tomecki (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on ways to get involved with this committee and APhA–APPM.
