Welcome back to AUSTIN (or online) for the 70th PPS!
We are thrilled to invite pharmacists and technicians back to Austin, Texas, where The University of Texas at Austin College of Pharmacy will host the 70th Annual Pharmacy Practice Seminar (PPS). PPS will return to in-person learning on September 24-25 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Austin, Texas (with an optional online broadcast of the Immunization update on September 23 and 6.5 hours of additional on-demand content). It is sure to be an outstanding event as we celebrate the 70th Anniversary of PPS (formerly known as the Pharmacy Post-Graduate Seminar) and pay tribute to its incredible evolution over the past seven decades.
PPS registrants will also have the choice to attend PPS online via live Zoom webinar.
The Pharmacy Practice Seminar is still one of the largest in-person continuing pharmacy education gatherings in the state – and beyond! And just as you have come to expect, the PPS agenda is jam-packed with interesting topics, engaging speakers, and all of the current TSBP topic requirements. There are 20+ continuing education hours available to registrants this year, which allows people some flexibility to choose topics that best fit their own practice needs (please see the Agenda page for specific details regarding live and home study sessions).
Live PPS Participation – TWO Options!
When you register for PPS, you will have the opportunity to indicate your attendance preference: Option 1: In-Person in Austin or Option 2: Watch via Online LIVE Broadcast. Worried your plans may change after you register? You will have until September 1 to indicate your final attendance plans (to make changes to your attendance plans before September 1, please email the UT CPE office: UTpharmacyCE@austin.utexas.edu).
