2022 Residency Program Notice banner

PLEASE NOTE!

With Omicron cases increasing and predicted to spike in the coming days, the Dade County Pharmacy Association Executive Committee has decided to change the format of the Residency CE Program to be held on January 22 and 23, 2022 – to Zoom ONLY .  The change was debated and approved to protect our resident-presenters and audience members and to ensure the safety of all.

We are setting up the Zoom meeting and will send out the specifics to those of you that have registered and/or will be registering.  You can use a computer, tablet, or smartphone to participate.  However, since Zoom takes attendance, each registrant must sign in to Zoom individually, in other words, signing in and watching the presentation in a group will only count for the person that signed in.

We will also be moving to online evaluation forms for the presenters and presentations.  An online form will be available for collecting CE Credit hour requests, license to be posted, and to collect and verify CE codes issued throughout the meeting.

If you have any additional questions  –  please email the association at dcpa@dcpa.us

Thank you and stay safe.

Review Your CE posting status

Members are reminded to regularly review their CE posting status at CE Brokers.  We encourage that you check the hours posted to ensure that the provider is correctly posting your hours.  We also encourage that you confirm the type of credit posted: Consultant v.s. General Credit.

 

Also Remember:

to check your hours before and after any license renewal. Once hours are posted for general credit toward the PS license, they cannot be changed to Consultant credit to be used at that PU license’s renewal.

Your annual membership provides you with a full subscription to CE Brokers. Take advantage of your membership benefit.

Special Thanks!

Thank you all who participated in the 25th Annual Residency Program. Our first attempt at running concurrent sessions with breakout rooms went fairly smoothly. Yes, there were a stoppers.

Evaluations have been reviewed and shared with the Residents and their Preceptors. The program content and presentation were well received.

Ideas for 2022? Maybe something like “LIFE BEYOND COVID.” We can only hope!
