Presentation Attendance:

  • Plan to attend all sessions.
  • Residents are expected to stay for the entire duration of the conference and attend other resident’s presentations – especially sessions late in the day on day one of the conference; as well as all sessions (if any) after lunch on the final day of the conference.  There is nothing more depressing to a resident who has worked extremely hard on their presentation than to give a presentation to an empty room.
  • Packets containing residents’ evaluation forms will be available after the last session has ended on the final day of the conference and will NOT be mailed or emailed following the conference.
  • In an attempt to increase attendance for afternoon sessions; the Planning Committee has decided to have tickets or coupons distributed following each session to individuals who are in attendance.  Double tickets or coupons will be distributed for afternoon session on the first day and triple tickets or coupons to attendees during the afternoon sessions on the final day.  A drawing will be held at the end of the conference and two prizes will be given away.  Conference attendees must be present at the time of the drawing in order to win.

 

√  Hotel Reservations:

1.)  Residents Accompanied by a Preceptor from OUTSIDE the Omaha/Metro area that require hotel accommodations:

  • If you are a resident attending The Midwest Pharmacy Residents Conference with a preceptor; please be sure to complete an online registration form in it’s entirety no later than February 26, 2018.  (Registrations received after February 26 will be subject to a late fee).  No Registrations will be accepted after March 9, 2018.
  • Registering for the conference will also ensure that presenters attending from outside the Omaha/Metropolitan area are placed on The Embassy Suites Master Rooming List within the conference room block – but only if you select the “Staying at Embassy Suites” registration option. A $50.00 rooming fee has been added to the cost of registration and will be assessed by The Conference during online registration.  The Conference will pay for room + tax for up to two (2) nights stay for presenters accompanied by a preceptor attending the conference from OUTSIDE the Omaha/Metro area.

2.)  Residents Unaccompanied by a Preceptor from OUTSIDE the Omaha/Metro area that require hotel accommodations:

  • If you are a presenting resident attending The Midwest Pharmacy Residents Conference without a preceptor; please note that the conference is not responsible for paying your hotel accommodations.   If contacted; the conference coordinator may (under certain circumstances) decide to request that the conference consider paying for the unaccompanied presenter’s room + tax for up to two (2) nights stay; however approval is not guaranteed.  If the unaccompanied presenter is granted a “conference-paid” room; he or she would be required to share that room with another attending resident who has requested a room but did not specify a roommate.
  • The unaccompanied presenter must also accurately complete an online registration form in it’s entirety no later than February 26, 2018.  (Registrations received after February 26 will be subject to a late fee).  No Registrations will be accepted after March 9, 2018.

√  Exhibits Night:

All Residents and Preceptors should please plan to attend “Exhibits Night” on Thursday evening from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.  Please remember that without the financial support of our sponsors and exhibitors we would be unable to host the the MPRC.  Your support and participation in this event is highly encouraged and very much appreciated.

 

√  Host Residency Program:

Please remember that the host residency program is sponsoring the conference on a voluntary basis.  They are sponsoring the conference because they are dedicated to post graduate pharmacy education.  They are not professional meeting planners.  The host residency program will be trying very hard to make the conference a success, but sometimes there can be glitches.  They will work very hard to correct any problems if they occur.
