NSU College of Pharmacy was one of the most represented colleges at the College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists (CPNP) annual meeting in Phoenix, Arizona in April. NSU was the first collegiate chapter of CPNP for students in the nation and the future of psychiatric and neurologic pharmacy education and mentorship shines brightly at NSU, with growing student interest each year.

Jose Rey, M.S., Pharm.D., B.C.P.P., associate professor, Department of Pharmacy Practice, presented on long acting injectable antipsychotics to more than 300 attendees. Joshua Caballero, Pharm.D., B.C.P.P., associate professor, Department of Pharmacy Practice, served as the keynote speaker for the student program and presented tips and insight on securing residencies to more than 50 students across the country. He was also appointed editor-in-chief of the Mental Health Clinician, CPNP’s peer-reviewed journal which recently signed a contract with a national publisher.

The poster session was attended by more than 600 professionals of multiple disciplines, a growing number each year. Jose Valdes, Pharm.D., NSU’s PGY-2 psychiatric pharmacy practice resident, Department of Pharmacy Practice, and Jennifer Thomas, Pharm.D., NSU’s neurocognitive fellow, presented four research posters about personality disorders and depression, respectively. Additionally, NSU student pharmacists Stepan Uhlyar, P.3, Shaun Michael, P.3, Katerina Tagaras, P.4, and Noor Daghistani, P.4, presented three research posters on long acting injectable antipsychotics.
