Each year, CSHP offers PGY1 Pharmacy Residents who are CSHP members the opportunity to submit their residency research abstracts for presentation at CSHP's June meeting. This year CSHP invited all PGY2 Pharmacy Residents to participate as well. A panel of judges evaluates each abstract based on an objective rubric and selects the top 8 abstracts as the "Great Eight". These selected abstracts are presented in a platform format, each 12 minutes in length, with 3 minutes for questions and answers. Trophies will be awarded to the top three ranked abstract winners.

Wednesday, June 13th: You may register on site but please arrive a bit early.
If not a current CSHP member or a member of the St. Francis pharmacy staff,

    Exhibiting at a CSHP Programs (Sorry, no exhibit space is offered June 2018)


    The Connecticut Society of Health-System Pharmacists receives numerous inquiries regarding industry opportunities to support educational events such as our evening continuing education programs which generally occur four times during the calendar year. Unfortunately, as many of you know, many hospitals have restrictions that prohibit our having exhibitors. If a hosting facility will allow, we will post information here and email information directly to all of the industry partners in our database.

    If you are unsure whether we have your current contact information, please request to be included
    by emailing your name, company, position, email and daytime phone number to office@cshponline.org


    When we are able to feature exhibitors, CSHP offers the opportunity to have up to two industry exhibitors at these events, when permitted by the hosting facility, at $1,000 for each exhibit.
      Reservations to exhibit at our evening CE programs are first come, first serve. Please contact CSHP at 888/506-3784 for availability before filling out and submitting a reservation form.
