COMPREHENSIVE STERILE COMPOUNDING is a 3-day, 20-hour practice-based course designed for pharmacists and technicians who are experienced in compounding. Completion of the Fundamental Compounding & Calculations Course is recommended, but not required. Physicians and other healthcare professionals are welcome to attend. Participants are instructed in the proper technique preparation, and quality control tests for sterile products, such as validation testing, membrane filtration, pyrogen tests, BET (bacterial endotoxin test), and others. Participants work in a simulated sterile environment in a 795 lab; on the final day, cleanroom exercises and a high-risk media fill will be conducted in a true 797 lab.
This course will include the USP guidelines, proper hand washing, and garbing. The curriculum will prepare attendees for anticipated changes to USP.
The attendee must pass an aseptic glove test and a media fill to successfully complete the course.
An optional Sterile Compounding: USP Chapter Home Study is also available and provides an additional 20 CE hours of sterile compounding training for technicians and pharmacists.

How do you effectively perform as an owner/manager with limited time, financial resources, and people, without sacrificing your actual career as a pharmacist? You don’t. You may have started as a pharmacist but you are now a business owner. Pharmacy school does not often prepare pharmacists on how to run a business with a fundamental shift to working on your business and not just in it. If you haven’t learned to think like world-class business leaders, you’re going to spend most of your time chasing those who do.
This conference, with 7.5 hours of continuing education, also includes multiple opportunities for networking with your peers, exhibitors, and social events in the heart of Philadelphia.
