What is the EAHP Student Award?
During the 23rd Congress of the EAHP, 21-23th March 2018, to be held in Gothenburg EAHP will announce an award to one (or several) European Pharmaceutical Students' Association (EPSA) members, recognising and honouring the best research article authored by an undergraduate student or one that has graduated within two years.
If you have been involved in interesting research, don't miss this golden opportunity to present your research at an international conference for Hospital Pharmacy, to be published in a peer-reviewed journal and potentially succeed in winning a prestigious award.
Why should I submit my research for this Award?
EPSA members should take pride in the research activity they are involved in and not allow modesty to prevent them from seeking publication and recognition on a wider stage.
The purpose of EAHP's Student Award is to provide motivation and inspiration to the hospital pharmacists of the future to commence an early relationship with the research and publishing aspect of the hospital pharmacy profession, and to encourage individuals personal and professional development in this area.
Undergraduates can bring unique perspectives on practise issues as newcomers to the profession, offering a "fresh pair of eyes" to many familiar professional challenges.
The EAHP Student Award seeks to draw out that perspective, and bring it to a wider audience.
The Award is also designed to create opportunities for individuals to support their early career development and enable quality work they have conducted to be recognised.
Finally, the Award presents a chance for individuals to share their passion for particular aspects of hospital pharmacy with the profession.
The author of the winning article will receive free attendance to the Congress and €500 for travel and accommodation expenses, as well as official recognition for their work at the EAHP Congress closing ceremony.
Will my research be eligible?
Any original research which you have been involved in can be submitted as long as it is relevant to hospital pharmacy and is primarily written by students.
If you have any questions about whether the work you are currently conducting, or have previously conducted, is eligible for submission for this Award, and how it should be presented, please get in touch with EAHP for assistance by emailing intern[at]eahp[dot]eu
Your abstract must be submitted by 15th November 2017, together with a proof of student status and Student Involvement Form.
The best abstracts will be selected by European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (EJHP) Editorial Board members until 30.11.2017. Selected abstracts will need to be turned into full research manuscripts by 31.01.2018 out of which the best one will receive the EAHP-EPSA Student Science Award. The article should follow the EJHP Guidance for Authors in terms of format and style.
Following the submission of your research the European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy may recommend some stylistic or format changes but will be in contact with you directly about this.
The winning article will be published in a special Congress edition of the Journal, issued to every registered attendee of the Congress on their arrival.
What are the procedures for submitting?
Full manuscript developed by the selected applicants should be also accompanied with a short cover letter explaining why your work/research advances hospital pharmacy research and what aspects of the research you consider prize-worthy.
The EAHP-EPSA Award will be presented during the closing ceremony of the 23rd Congress of the EAHP, in Gothenburg, Sweden on Friday, 23 March 2018.
