Homecoming Weekend & Fall Bicentennial Festivities will be October 26-28, 2017

The Rowe Lectures are being moved from the traditional Friday to Thursday (10/26/17) and will still be held at Weber’s Inn.

Thursday night, there will be a “Feast of Ideas” where U-M faculty from various disciplines will be presenting 20-minute talks at various Ann Arbor restaurants, bars, and retail shops from 6 – 9 pm.

Friday, the “Third Century Expo” will be on the Diag and Ingalls Mall from 4 pm to 7 pm – this is billed as “a public fair of cutting-edge projects and initiatives that demonstrate how the University is making a positive impact on society, both locally and globally.”

In order to give our alumni the opportunity to attend these Bicentennial activities, we will not be having any College-specific receptions or other activities that Friday evening.

Saturday morning, the College will host a Tailgate Party & Class Reunions in the Atrium Room at Weber’s Inn. Buses are available to and from the game.

    The registration fee for the Tom D. Rowe 66th Annual Pharmacy Lectures is $115.  This fee includes all program materials as well as continental breakfast, breaks, and lunch. The fee is waived for pharmacists who serve as preceptors for the College of Pharmacy’s experiential training program.

    Refund Policy

    The registration fee will be refunded if notification is made in writing to the College of Pharmacy at pharm.advance@umich.edu by October 19, 2017. Refunds will not be granted for no-shows. 

    Pharmacy Continuing Education Requirements

    This activity is structured to meet knowledge-based educational needs and acquires factual knowledge. Information in knowledge-type activities is based on evidence as accepted in the literature by the health care professions. Pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit will be earned based on participation in this activity. Attendance and participation are required before obtaining PCE credit. Any individual who is more than 10 minutes late to an activity or leaves an activity early will not be granted PCE credit. This procedure will be strictly enforced, so please plan accordingly.

    Participants must complete an online activity evaluation and posttest with a passing score of 70 percent or greater no later than Nov. 9, 2017. Posttests will not be graded and credit will not be processed until the online evaluation and posttest has officially closed for response. Please allow MPA two weeks to grade posttests and process and upload credit to CPE Monitor after the posttest has closed. NOTE: ACPE guidelines prohibit MPA from issuing credit more than 60 days after the activity for any reason; therefore, to avoid denial of credit, it is imperative that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians complete the online evaluation and posttest by the deadline indicated to allow sufficient time for processing. If all requirements are met, participants will receive pharmacy continuing education (PCE) credit through CPE Monitor, a national, collaborative effort by ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) to provide an electronic system for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to track their completed PCE credits. MPA, as an ACPE-accredited provider, is required to report pharmacist and pharmacy technician PCE credit using this tracking system. Pharmacist and pharmacy technician participants must provide their NABP e-Profile identification number and date of birth (in MMDD format) when they complete activity evaluations. It will be the responsibility of the participant to provide the correct information. If this information is not correctly provided, NABP and ACPE prohibit MPA from issuing CPE credit. Online access to their inventory of completed credits will allow pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to easily monitor their compliance with CPE requirements and print statements of credit. Therefore, MPA will not provide printed statements of credit to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Partial credit will not be awarded. If you have yet to sign up for CPE Monitor, go to MyCPEMonitor.net.

    Pharmacists who attend the Tom D. Rowe 66th Annual Pharmacy Lectures and submit completed Record of Program Attendance and evaluation forms will earn a maximum of 6 hours (0.6 CEU) of continuing pharmacy education credit.

    Initial Release Date: 10/26/17; Expiration Date: 10/26/18

    Michigan Pharmacists Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education
