Clinically Intensive Debates

Starting Monday, February 1 through Friday, February 5, a lively, 30-minute point-counter-point debate on a pharmacotherapy topic will be released each day in the Whova app around midnight the night before. The debates will be pre-recorded in an audio file format.

Similar to a podcast, you can listen to these debates while you sip your coffee, during your morning commute, or whenever is most convenient for you throughout the day! 2.5 total hours of CE will be available for pharmacists.

After each debate, attendees will be able to interact and pose questions to the faculty presenters, as well as vote for the debate’s winner in the
Whova app. One person who votes each day will be randomly selected to win a prize!
