Networking and Conferences


New Practitioners are the future of pharmacy, and PPA supports and encourages your growth and involvement in the profession.


New Practitioner Discussion Forum

The New Practitioner Forum is a meeting designed exclusively for new practitioners. We hold 4 meetings a year, one each at both the PPA Mid-Year and Annual Conference, and also by conference call at other times throughout the year. It is an opportunity for discussion, networking, and idea sharing.The New Practitioner Forum works on suggesting and/or developing programs, ideas, services, and communications focusing on getting and keeping new practitioners engaged and involved in PPA and the profession.


PPA Mid-Year Conference

PPA holds its Mid-Year Conference in January or February of each year. This conference weekend includes continuing education programs, social events, the Kick-Off Reception & Celebration, and the Student OTC Competition. All New Practitioners are invited to a New Practitioner Forum held each year at Mid-Year to discuss current relevant topics. We also ask New Practitioners to evaluate student poster submissions.
