Concordia University Wisconsin will again host a slate of courses relevant to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, marketers, and pharmacy students, thanks to a partnership with the American College of Apothecaries.

According to the ACA, compounding courses allow pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and marketers to further their knowledge and provide support for pharmacies interested in adding product lines in order to expand business and better serve their patients and communities. Prior to this partnership between Concordia and the American College of Apothecaries, the closest training site was the ACA National Training Laboratory in Bartlett, Tennessee.

Keeping the educational tradition since the courses’ beginning in 2017, the hands-on pharmaceutical compounding training courses will be taught by CUW Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Science Nancy Stoehr, PharmD, FACA, FIACP.

Stoehr has stated that “We’re really excited to be able to establish ourselves as a leader in compounding education among pharmacy schools. The location, combined with Concordia’s exemplary training facilities and beautifully scenic campus make this a great opportunity for professionals in the upper Midwest.”

The courses also offer an opportunity for affordable continuing education credit.

Fundamental compounding (21 credit hours)

November 14-16

Veterinary Compounding Essentials (15 credit hours)

October 18-19

Comprehensive Sterile Compounding (20 credit hours)
