explore their pre and post-graduation opportunities. You can mingle with recruiters, interview for internships,
discuss P4 rotations, and start thinking about residencies.

levels and locations come together.

APPE zones. (Boise, Twin Falls, N Idaho, Reno, Pocatello, Alaska) Come prepared with questions.

Chu Lectureship
This is an annual lectureship for biomedical research/drug discovery for the College of Pharmacy that usually coincides
with Pharmacy Fair. It is typically held on the Friday of Pharmacy Fair during lunch. All students are required to attend
the lecture.

This is a student led event and takes a huge amount of volunteers to make it successful. There are all sorts of positions
for all availability levels and talents. It feels great to be a part of the team and be able to say I helped accomplish that!
Look for info on volunteering early in spring semester.

Note: Pharmacy Fair is a required event for all P1s and P4s - Be prepared and plan accordingly. P4s there is a small
travel stipend available based on your APPE zone and the preceptors get notified by OEE but you will still need to work
out your specific schedule details with your preceptor when the time comes.
P2s and P3s don’t feel left out - Be a part of the planning committee and attend events to network and continue laying
the groundwork for future employment. Attend the Chu Lectureship.
