ACA Compound Academy

Our intensive 3-day hands-on course is designed specifically for student pharmacists who want to learn more about the exciting field of pharmaceutical compounding. Building on the content typically found in pharmacy school, this course will expand your knowledge of the art and science of pharmaceutical compounding with an emphasis on quality, best practices, and current laws and regulations. We limit our classes to only 12 students, ensuring a low student:teacher ratio and maximizing your opportunity to learn. Training will be held at the ACA National Training Laboratory in Bartlett, Tennessee.
