CPNP Connect: A Mentoring Opportunity

Residents have an opportunity to be paired up with a pharmacist member for a one-on-one mentoring opportunity during CPNP 2019. Pairing of the mentor to the mentee will be based on the specialty interests of the member and resident as identified during the online registration process. Once paired, mentors and mentees will set up a time to meet during CPNP 2019 to answer questions and discuss future plans.

Why should you attend CPNP 2019?

"As co-chairs of the RPD community it is amazing to see all the resident trainees at the CPNP Annual Meeting. The meeting offers a surplus of thoughtfully designed educational opportunities with different tracks that allow for residents to easily individualize their learning opportunities. Additionally it affords them the opportunity to meet and network with colleagues and potential employers from across the country. The relatively small size of the meeting makes approaching and conversing with national leaders and experts in the field easier than larger meetings."
