P401: Historical background of the ACS Approval Program

Anne McCoy (The Ohio State University, USA)

As the chemistry community is approaching the fourth anniversary of the adoption of the 2008 Guidelines, the ACS Committee on Professional Training (CPT) is beginning the process of reevaluating these guidelines in preparation for a new edition.  The 2008 guidelines represented a large departure from previous editions in a number of ways.  In this talk we will present an overview of the history of the approval program and a discussion of the changes made in the 2008 guidelines.  These will be discussed further in the talks that follow.  We will also present an overview of the process CPT plans to follow as we consider the upcoming revisions to the Guidelines.
