AAPS Visiting Scientist Program

Since 1985, the Visiting Scientist Program has provided a forum for pharmaceutical scientists to visit colleges and share knowledge, experiences, and ideas with students. The program benefits participants in academia and industry by encouraging students to pursue research and career opportunities in the pharmaceutical sciences.

Many students are unaware of professional opportunities in the pharmaceutical industry. Still others may be hesitant to pursue graduate school and research because they are unsure of the rewards and expectations. These students can benefit tremendously from the perspective, advice, and practical experiences of pharmaceutical scientists, while the scientists benefit from their service to the college and learning about the school's current academic research.
