Students from The University of Findlay’s College of Pharmacy will compete in the National Student Pharmacist Compounding Competition (SPCC) March 17-18 at The University of Florida in Gainesville.
Elizabeth Mayer, Brett Christy and Kim Droesch will compete in the event, which includes several pharmacy schools from across the country. Students will demonstrate competence in the areas of formula design, dosage form compounding, regulatory standards and clinical practice.
The SPCC was envisioned by Ken Speidel, Pharm.D., UF assistant professor, and was founded to provide an educational experience for the student pharmacist to enhance their prescription formulation expertise and to increase their exposure to pharmacy compounding, which is an essential component to pharmacy practice.
The University of Florida College of Pharmacy is hosting the event in collaboration with Corporate Medisca, a supplier of chemicals and education to the pharmacy compounding industry.
The students were selected in December after winning a local competition held at UF.
The United States Pharmacopeia (USP) will post live updates during the competition on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube.
