About SERC

The Southeastern Residency Conference is a two day symposium designed to give pharmacists in post-graduate residency training programs an opportunity to gain experience presenting original work and engage in fellowship with other residents and preceptors from around the southeastern region. The conference is held annually at the Classic Center in downtown Athens, Georgia. However, during the pandemic the conference is held virtually via Zoom.


While we are virtual, registration is handled online via Eventbrite and check-in is through SCHED.

Opening Session

The conference kicks off with the opening session where general announcements, information about our event, and a conference overview are presented. In addition, our keynote speaker provides a educational session on a current pharmacy practice topic.

Resident Presentations

The conference itself consists of 6 presentation sessions spread over two days. There will be up to 12 concurrent presentation rooms with 5 presentations scheduled in each room during each session. Rooms are grouped by clinical topic (such as ambulatory care, infectious disease, etc..) to enable preceptors and residents with a specific interest to stay in one room throughout the session. Each resident has 15 minutes allocated for their presentation and Q&A. There are 5 minutes between presentations to allow easy transition from room to room.


All residents and preceptors should fill out an evaluation form on each presentation they attend. There will be a designated evaluator in each room who will meet briefly with the resident after their presentation to give them constructive feedback.


Breaks are scheduled between sessions to allow an opportunity to network via Zoom or the chat section in SCHED, plan which presentations to attend next, or just relax and unwind.

A hour lunch break is scheduled between sessions on Thursday.
