About Our Chapter
The Greater Philadelphia Chapter of ACRP (affectionately known as ACRP Philly) has the distinction of being one of the first groups to organize at a local level. ACRP Philly has offered networking and continuing education opportunities to thousands of clinical research professionals throughout the Philadelphia area. What started as a wine and cheese gathering for a handful of professionals all those years ago has blossomed into a vibrant and active community with regular networking and educational offerings. Our meetings generally offer contact hours, important for maintaining ACRP certification.
The Greater Philadelphia Chapter was a very proud recipient of the Outstanding Chapter Award for 2010 and we continue to offer great educational and networking opportunities, each addressing important industry specific topics.
Please check the Chapter website as more information about meeting topics and specific locations will be posted as it becomes available. And add the Chapter on LinkedIn, it's a great networking opportunity! LinkedIn - ACRP Philly.
