P-4s Ashley Huntsberry and Joselyn Benabe took top honors in ASHP’s Clinical Skills Competition, defeating 126 teams of student pharmacists for the prestigious award.
ASHP’s Clinical Skills Competition allows participants to hone their problem-solving skills using realistic patient-case scenarios.
Huntsberry and Benabe competed against their classmates at the local level before being selected to represent CU Skaggs School of Pharmacy during the Midyear.
This year’s Clinical Skills Competition was the largest in ASHP history, with teams from 127 pharmacy schools competing.
There were two days of national-level competition, beginning with a closed-session semifinal round, when each team completed a written case study. The 10 final teams had to defend their treatment recommendations before a live audience and a panel of judges.
Huntsberry and Benage were selected as the winners and took home as prizes $500 each, an individual trophy and a display trophy for the school.
