The Pharmacy Student Forum is pleased to provide a Practice Advancement Initiative (PAI) Video Competition for our Student Societies of Health-System Pharmacy (SSHP). The competition calls for quick informational and inspiring videos that will be an imaginative and popular way to educate and advocate for the future practice of pharmacy. This is a way for student pharmacists to showcase their professionalism while also expressing their creativity. These short "public service announcement-type" videos can take on the persona of various genres. Some examples include, but not limited to, commercials, documentaries, parodies, music videos, or movie trailers. The top two finalists will receive certificates, while the grand winner will be recognized during the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting. The SSHP that produces the winning video will receive a certificate and the PAI Video award. So, get creative and work together to celebrate the future of pharmacy practice!
