Dr. Brian Shepler and his group of students win 1st place at the annual IPhO VIP Case Competition.
Please join me to congratulate Dr. Brian Shepler and his group of students. Brian, as Faculty Advisor to the Industry Pharmacist Organization (IPhO), and his group of students (Rani Bendersky, Myra Fu, Josh Martin and Quynh Nguyen) won the 3rd Annual Value of Industry Pharmacists (VIP) Case Competition. The competition was the most impressive turnout to-date with 44 chapters in the running. 16 chapters participated for the first time. The annual IPhO VIP Case Competition enables students to delve into multiple disciplines within the pharmaceutical industry as they develop their hypothetical drug, including, but not limited to: Clinical Development, Medical Affairs, Regulatory Affairs, and Commercial Functions. Each phase of the drug's development lifecycle presents a unique challenge that encourages students to think strategically and apply both their clinical and pharmaceutical industry knowledge. Congratulations to Brian and the students!
