WMSHP's second annual residency showcase was a great success with 11 programs and institutions participating. There were many Ferris students in attendance and it was great to see such interest in residency training. There were even P1's asking about specialty residencies! It's never too early to investigate career opportunities and it was wonderful to see students so early in their education thinking so far ahead.
On behalf of the WMSHP board, I would like to congratulate Joan Rider, PharmD on her selection as honorary member. Joan currently serves as President of MPA and has a long history of involvement in professional organizations, including WMSHP. As honorary member, Joan will receive a lifetime of paid dues to WMSHP.
I would also like to congratulate the recently elected board and thank all of our members for voting. We will be formally inducting new officers at the January meeting.
The vote for the by-law revision limiting the associate member status to students was passed by a vote of 25 to 1. Thank you for taking the time to vote at the October meeting.
