You Asked for It! Continuing Education Activities

 

Welcome to the University of Connecticut’s (UConn) School of Pharmacy You Asked for It! continuing education web page. This program features high quality, peer reviewed Continuing Education for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

Our continuing education team is interested in creating continuing education offerings that meet your needs. From time to time we send surveys asking you what you are interested in learning about, and then we seek out experienced pharmacists to prepare continuing education modules. We encourage our authors to talk to you in language that you understand, and we allowed them to assert a little bit of their personality into the writing, reducing the likelihood that we will bore you! The final products are top-notch offerings that not only tell you what you should be doing and what others are doing, but how to improve your practice.

Industry funding isn’t always available for the topics that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians want to see. Whenever possible, however, we do find funding to support continuing education. When it’s not possible, we ask for a small fee to cover the costs associated with developing the modules, maintaining a website, and processing your credits.

We hope you enjoy the continuing education we present here. More important, we hope you learn from it. Please note that we read all of the comments you write on the evaluations and incorporate your feedback consistently.

Please contact us at joanne.nault@uconn.edu if you have questions or comments.
