SWOSU Pharmacy Students Advance to Final Round of Research Challenge Competition

Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy students (from left) Raven Hayworth of Claremore, Brianna Hassett of Oklahoma City and Kayla Woods of Perry have advanced to the third round of the National Clinical Research Challenge, an event hosted by the American College of Clinical Pharmacy. This is the fourth year of the competition and is the furthest a SWOSU team has advanced in the challenge against other pharmacy colleges across the United States. During the first round, teams critically evaluate and apply clinical literature. Teams achieving top 40 scores advance to round two, which allows students to submit a research idea.  The top 20 teams advance to round three, which requires a detailed description of a clinical research proposal. The teams selected as the top three will be announced in June and will present their research design during a poster session at the 2019 annual meeting in New York.
