In the Spring 2017 the 3rd year students took part in "PharmaCon 2017", the pinnacle of their Pharmacy Seminar course.  Students presented posters followed by presentations and demonstrations to a distinguished panel, who judged them on originality, practicality, and innovation. Students performed at the highest level of Bloom’s Taxonomy and opportunities like this enable our students to create new career opportunities and move the profession forward.
