Educational Affairs Council (EAC)

The primary responsibility of the Education Affairs Council (EAC) is to serve as an oversight committee for the provision of continuing education programming to the OSHP membership. One of its largest tasks is planning the OSHP Fall Seminar, a one day continuing education seminar held every fall in the Portland area.  A sub-committee of the EAC, the Annual Seminar Committee is charged with planning the OSHP Annual Seminar, a three day continuing education seminar held each spring. EAC maintains a database of presentation topics and speakers from all of the OSHP-sponsored continuing education events. In the spring, EAC reviews the OSHP scholarship application submissions. The scholarship awards are announced at the OSHP Annual Seminar. Funding for the OSHP scholarships is provided through the Silent Auction fundraiser along with donations given during the OSHP Annual Seminar each spring. In 2013 EAC initiated a new event, the OSHP Mock Interview Night, where students can practice interviewing with pharmacists in preparation for upcoming residency or job interviews.

OSHP Scholarship Program

The OSHP Scholarship award was established to promote personal and professional development and to celebrate the contributions and achievements of student pharmacists. Through the award, students are recognized for their outstanding leadership abilities, community service and outstanding accomplishments.

OSHP solicits applications for the OSHP Scholarship each spring. Scholarships are offered to students who are currently enrolled in a pharmacy degree program and are either a Pharmacy Student Society member (which includes OSHP) or an OSHP member. Only students who will be full-time pharmacy students during the next academic year are eligible. Each year, several $1,500 scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, health care-related work experience, involvement in leadership activities, and community service.

The Scholarship Application Process will begin January 2020!
