We have received all of the cases for this year’s CAPSI competitions. Below you will find information on what each competition consists of, the rules and how to sign-up for the competitions. I encourage each and every one of you to participate in the competitions this year even if you don’t want to attend PDW. These competitions are a great way of honing your pharmacy skills whether in compounding or the patient care process.
Due to the level of therapeutic knowledge potentially required in the patient interview and over the counter competition, they will be restricted to second, third, and fourth year students.
First and second year students can sign up for either the OTC or PIC competitions to become an observer. We will place you in a 15 minute time slot with a consulting student so you can observe the process of these competitions and get ready to participate in future years or even learn some therapeutic skills from higher years!
Sign-up for the OTC, PIC and Compounding Competitions will go live on Wednesday October 9th at 7:00 p.m. Please sign up early to ensure you get a spot in the competition of your choice! SLC essays can be submitted at any time until the October 15th 12PM deadline.
