EAHP Congress Student Package
EAHP offers a package for students to be able to take part in its 21st Annual Congress taking place in Vienna, Austria, from 16 to 18 of March, 2016. The congress brings together approximately 4.000 hospital pharmacists, healthcare influencers and other interest groups and boasts a high-level professional programme including a session specially targeted at students.
In 2016, the topic of the student session will be 'A systematic approach to pharmaceutical care - what is this all about and how can it be implemented by the hospital pharmacist?'. This will be a highly interactive session and will be developed based on student feedback, together with the European Pharmaceutical Students' Association (EPSA). Read an interview with one of the hosts of the student session, Dr. Tonna, HERE, and you will know more about the special 4-hour-long interactive workshop.
EAHP invites all students with an interest in hospital pharmacy to take advantage of this offer to learn more about the field, network with other students and hospital pharmacy professionals, and get an inside view on what's going on in the world of hospital pharmacy.
