Invited Clinical Pharmacist (ICP)
Program Applications due April 30, 2020
Applications are now open for the Invited Clinical Pharmacist (ICP) Program, supported by the NCS Pharmacy Section.
The purpose of this program is to promote and increase the practice of neurocritical care pharmacy by sending qualified neurocritical care pharmacists to selected institutions that wish to expand or initiate neurocritical care pharmacy services. The invited clinical pharmacist is expected to interact with the pharmacy and neuro-ICU teams, provide lectures, attend rounds or perform other relevant activities that will help support this initiative. The visit will be a minimum of one business day and is not expected to be greater than two days. The ICP will receive financial support to offset the expenses of travel, lodging and food. Funding is meant to offset the expenses of the ICP and will not be provided to the applicant or their institution. Up to two proposals may be funded during each funding cycle, based on available funds. Successful participants are expected to share their experiences through an article in Currents and/or a brief presentation at the NCS annual meeting.
Who can apply?
Any current NCS member may apply for the program on behalf of their medical center or university. The inviting institution is responsible for securing any permission for the ICP to participate in any activity involving patient care.
How to apply?
NCS members of interested institutions should complete the program application no later than April 30, 2020.
