CPRB Student and Resident Networking Event - February 4, 2017 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m
The contributions of practicing pharmacists in the development of future leaders for the pharmacy profession are well recognized. Pharmacy students and residents, our profession’s future leaders, derive significant benefit from the leadership, advice and support provided by current leaders in the pharmacy profession. In recognition of the importance of the Student and Resident Networking, CPRB, CSHP and Fresenius Kabi have partnered in the development of the “Student and Resident Networking Event” to allow Canadian students and residents to explore career development while giving them unique networking opportunities. The success of the program will depend on the participation and enthusiasm of the students, residents, and pharmacists. We hope you can join us for this event and we look forward to your response.

Program Outline

Pharmacy Practitioners:
Canadian pharmacists including CPRB members, CSHP Board members, CSHP Fellows, CSHP Past-Presidents, Residency Directors and Coordinators, Association Executives, and any other interested CSHP members.
Undergraduate Pharmacy Students and Residents:
Residents currently enrolled in a Canadian Pharmacy Residency (CPRB) program and undergraduate pharmacy students.

Event Description:
The goal is to provide a networking opportunity for students and pharmacy residents to meet practicing pharmacists and leaders in the profession. The students and residents will have an opportunity to explore career development and choices and talk about experiences, etc. The format will be quick roundtable discussions, led by volunteer practitioners (directors, coordinators, preceptors, etc.).  The volunteers will have a few minutes to describe their career choices and interests, and then the residents and students are given the opportunity to ask questions. Students and residents will move to a new table every 10 minutes. The interactions will be limited to the duration of the reception unless practitioners, residents, and students develop their own networking or mentoring relationships.


The event will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the InterContinental Toronto Centre Hotel located at 225 Front Street West, Toronto, Ontario in the Ontario Niagara Room (lower level). The reception will commence with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

How to participate:

Professor Caulfield is and has been involved with a number of national and international policy and research ethics committees, including the Canadian Biotechnology Advisory Committee; Genome Canada’s Science Advisory Committee; the Ethics and Public Policy Committee for International Society for Stem Cell Research; and the Federal Panel on Research Ethics.
