USC Continuing Medical Education Conference
The field of pharmacy is changing rapidly. Now more than ever, pharmacy professionals must stay current with advancements in research, technology and practice. Pharmacists meet this demand through completing required continuing education (CE) courses. CE requirements vary by state, by professional organizations and by hospital organizations.
Continuing professional development at the USC School of Pharmacy provides exceptional training for practicing pharmacists—as well as other health care professionals and scientists—through quality programs that are:
- Taught by leading clinicians and scientists
- Based in innovative research
- Current with new discoveries that correlate directly with patient care
The School offers partial- and multi-day programs. Recent topics have included asthma, diabetes, drug abuse, hypertension, psychiatric disorders, immunization training, sleep disorders, and pharmacoeconomics and outcomes research.
Future plans include an annual roster of travel programs, an expanded list of local and weekend programs at the USC Health Sciences Campus, an array of certificate programs, and web-based and home-study offerings that can be easily accessed.
