COP students advance to national ACCP Clinical Research Challenge competition

Congratulations to Rebekah Crandall, Yesenia Avalos and Kimberly Grubbs, a team of second-year professional students who recently won the USC campus’s ACCP Clinical Research Challenge competition and will represent the College in ACCP’s national competition.

For the national challenge, schools and colleges of pharmacy from across the country are invited to sponsor three-student teams to compete against other teams. The first round will be an online journal club, and the top 40 teams will advance to the second round, a letter of intent submission. For round two, the students will be given a clinically focused research question and have two and one-half weeks to develop and submit a letter of intent online following specific criteria. The top 20 teams will advance to the third round, where they must develop a complete research proposal. The teams with the top three research proposal submissions will be invited to present their research design during a poster session at the 2017 ACCP Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Ariz.

 Good luck to our student pharmacists and their faculty adviser, Bryan Love!
