In my role, I get to meet lots of students with a variety of SAS skills and career aspirations. For those of you studying in fields associated with the pharmaceutical or healthcare industry, you definitely want to consider coming to the PharmaSUG 2012 conference. You will learn how you can apply your SAS skills to the challenges of the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, and can also network with other SAS users in the industry.
PharmaSUG is offering a Student Scholarship Program designed to support students interested in attending the conference. This year’s conference will be held May 13-16 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square in San Francisco, California. For more information on the scholarship and how to apply, visit the PharmaSUG website . The application deadline is March 14th.
A message from Ellen Brookstein, PharmaSUG scholarship coordinator:
PharmaSUG is the only industry specific SAS User Group so you definitely should consider applying for a scholarship! We offer seminars and hands on workshops for industry professionals at all levels from novices to seasoned experts. Our presenters are the best in the business including many published SAS authors who always enjoy chatting with their fans, as well as experts from SAS Institute. We get you immediately involved since part of the deal is that you agree to volunteer in some capacity at the conference. Volunteering is one of the best ways to network and connect to people in the industry. But will you have a good time? Yes, we make sure of that! You are treated like a VIP and you will get to attend all kinds of parties with great food, drink and new friends. And don’t forget, you will be in San Francisco! I promise we will send you home with new knowledge, renewed excitement about your career and a bunch of new great friends and colleagues. (and maybe even a new IPod. Did I forget to mention all the prizes we give out at closing session?)
