Academy of New Practitioners

The Academy of New Practitioners was started in 2012 to aid new practitioners as they forge their way into the diverse field of pharmacy in Colorado. Membership in the Academy is open to any Society member who considers him/herself a new practitioner, generally having graduated from a Doctor of Pharmacy degree program within the past seven years. Whether you are looking for professional development, networking, or mentor opportunities, the Academy of New Practitioners can help you find it. If you are interested, please consider attending one of our meetings held every other month on the second Wednesday. Fourth year pharmacy students are also encouraged to attend!
